    Yep, typical overreaction.

    All you had to do was look at the radars, there wasn't even a bow echo
    for gawd's sake. I think I heard thunder a grand total of 3 little booms.
    May the FORCE be with you!

    Ya never know about a tornado. Back a long time ago I was on Paradise Island
    staying at the resort that is now The Atlantis. There had been T-Storms in the
    area but nothing major to speak of and the sun was out. A fairly small dark
    cloud drifted over the resort and popped a bolt of lightning that hit in the ocean.
    It didn't produce and rain or wind and kept on it's way about 3 miles off the
    beach when the sucker dropped a good size water spout!!! I got it on tape, made
    for some excitement. :D

    And it came VERY close to a parasailing platform, I don't think the people on it
    were very happy...
    May the FORCE be with you!
