    A tornado was spotted in Rockwood and Kingston a few minutes ago, haven't heard anything more about it, our satellite TV is out, and the radio stations in Roane County are not working. We had a severe thunderstorm in my location, it's about gone, got 1-1/4" of rain in about 10 minutes. This tornado was about 15 or 20 miles away from me, near Watts Bar Lake in another county.

    ...I'm over in the next county from the bad weather, am listening to a high school football game over the radio, nothing else has been mentioned, we still have a light rain. I haven't heard a thing from the police scanner where this tornado was supposed to be, maybe it knocked out their communications? :crazy:

    We had 3/4 inch in 20 minutes here in mossy grove. Can still hear the storms down toward chatanooga. This weather has sure messed up my fishing. Guess I am done this year after only 3 trips out. I sneezed and broke another rib the other day.

    As much pollen has been in the air lately, I'm not suprised you broke a rib sneezing, Frank. I'm not bothered by ragweed, but goldenrod....Dern bugs have been bad, too. I can't even walk to the vehicle without getting eaten up. Twice this year I've been bitten by something that made my eye swell.......Looks like the worse part of this storm was south of us.

    That must have been one heck of a sneeze.

    My first open heart was 11 years ago. I broke 2 ribs sneezing after that one. I had open heart last october and have broke ribs 5 times sneezing this time. doctor says they dont have time to heal between sneezes plus this time my ribs did not grow back together. just twisting around or lifting anything slightly heavy will cause one side to jump up on top of the other. very uncomfortable situation.

    frank we can fix that with some rubber tubing, hose clamps, and duct tape. I hope you get healed up brother so you can get back to fishing.

    All the doctors say it is my ribs nothing they can do. I did some engineering myself. I found an 8"wide belt and put it around my chest. It helps. Got to be ready by spring.

    We fished the Woods Chapel section of the Emory yesterday, Frank. The only thing we caught was a crappie, a couple of bluegill, and some dink bass.
