SO PEOPLE HAVE BEEN ASKING IF THE TORNADOES WERE NEAR US: Nope. We got some wind but nothing serious. But this cool gadget was on the job, displaying a bright yellow light and a scrolling "Tornado Watch" display that gave the times, etc. It would have made an audible alarm, but I silenced it for all the silenceable events -- it would have made a lot of noise if there had been a tornado warning as opposed to a watch. Or a tsunami. And, well, if East Tennessee ever gets a tsunami warning I guess I'd want to know, although, jeez. . . .
