    Ugh, I know. I usually don't have to worry about this kind of weather until March. I have an NOAA weather radio on my night stand. Sounds like a good time to make sure the batteries are working before I go to bed. I've already told my hubby not to argue with me if I wake him up in the middle of the night and ask him to go to the basement. We have a bedroom in the basement and a tv, so it's not like we can't sleep there. I'm in Central KY, just north of Lexington, so I'm really hoping we don't get anything too bad. And I'm hoping that I don't have to drive in it to work in the morning. I am pretty scared of storms, but especially at night and when I have to be on the road.

    All of you that are in the path of these storms, please be safe. I will keep you in my prayers.
    I hope you don't get the storms too badly, Stacey. You are smart to be prepared.

    It's been a weird winter. Here in NW Ohio we've gotten MAYBE 10 inches of snow so far this year. Usually by now we've gotten at least 1 STORM with 10 inches. We've also had about as many days with the temp below freezing as we normally have days with the temps in the single digits. Been a very warm winter.

    Everyone stay safe.

    Stay safe tonight Becca. Do you go to college in KY? I was home sick on Tuesday and we had lots of rain and wind. I live in Scott County and there was a confirmed tornado somewhere here on Tuesday and we didn't even have a watch or a warning for a tornado, just a severe thunderstorm watch. I heard that Louisville got hit in the St. Matthews area. Try to get some sleep. If your college is like mine, the RAs would pound on our doors and herd us all to the basement if we had tornado warnings, but you may not be in a dorm. You should sign up for weather alerts on your phone somehow.

    I'm torn about this! I feel like it's too early for us to be #1 and we'll just get knocked back down again. But as long as we are undefeated come March/April, that is all that matters!

    Yeah, the warmer weather is nice, but it's not normal, so I'm ready for cold and snow. I remember when we had some tornado outbreaks in February a few years ago, but I can't believe that we are getting this kind of weather in January.

    Hell they were even talking thunderstorms for us tonight....I don't think we're actually going to get them, but they were in the forecast. That never happens. Low tonight 36, high tomorrow 47....it's like it's late February/early March already.

    I've gotta have my snow. And it's WAY too early for anyone who normally gets any significant snowfall to actually be worried about tornados.

    Thanks Kizmet. I am glued to the weather updates. I have them loaded on my iPhone also. There is something to be said about the safety of basements during dangerous weather. Wish we had one!

    ^Yeah, that was my #1 thing when we built our house - I had to have a basement. And I'm glad that we moved my stepson's bedroom down there so now we have somewhere to sleep when he's not here and it's storming.

    I know conference games are a whole different beast, but the few times I've watched Florida this year they just weren't good at all. Ohio State ran all over em, Rutgers beat em. If Kentucky shows up to play they shouldn't lose to them....but it's a conference game so anything can and usually does happen.

    As I sit here today, grateful that we were spared by the tornadic activity last night, my heart goes out to all those who were affected, such as Alabama residents. They are definitely in my thoughts and prayers, as are any others that were affected. Please keep all victims of the severe weather moving through the US in your thoughts and prayers also. Thanks.

    So sorry for all those affected in Alabama and whoever else got hit last night. Am glad everyone posting so far is ok...was thinking about you all and praying last night. There were definitely alot of tweets around Nashville last night and it didn't sound real good until Jimmy Carter went to bed because he was tweeting alot until the weather got better and said he'd be back if it started again. Hope the weather has settled down for everyone today!!
