It never fails. Strong storms coming in? "HIGH WINDS! HAIL! TORRENTIAL RAINS! BATTEN DOWN THE HATCHES!!!" It's like the crap on the news every time a big tropical storm or hurricane moves toward the coast, except it's only local news, not national, telling you to be sure your will is made out.
This evening in central OK we had some strong winds come through, a few areas getting gusts as high as 80mph but the worst everywhere else in the 50's. And it rained pretty heavy as the first line came through, and has rained light to moderate in waves since. Not a damn thing we haven't seen before, but from the way the weather weenies kept coming on, you'd think the world was about to end.
You folks on the coast? I'm not sure how you get through hurricane season without hanging one or two of the most annoying of them.
