70% Rain forecast had held off all day till dark ...THEN  Shocked

SEVERE WEATHER WARNING: Tornado Watch in Effect for St. Cloud, FL.
We are under the gun tonight, ground zero in a corridor running from West Lake Tohopekaliga ( Kissimmee ) NE through Canoe Creek, Deer Run (my area ) to Alligator Lake , 1/4 mile due east of me. Then on over to Harmony, Holopaw & Deer Park.
The first alarm warning went off at 9: PM , piercing sound those things... Major lighting show.
We've had some high wind gusts and VERY HEAVY Rain...

Kind calm now, not really sleeping kinda listening and watching the broadcast....
I know it's nothing new to you Mid Westerners  Undecided

But it has my attention  Shocked
Suppose too ramp up again when the Major part of the Cold Front get here in around Dawn .

I can't tell from that angle, is it a small ring action, or large? I think a small ring would qualify for main match, I know I have been approved on a Spanish Guardia Civil rifle converted to .308.

I resemble that remark...
Supposed to be in the low 80's today.  I'm going to the range (if I ever get moving), and try out my newly smith'd Pietta 1860 Army revolvers, and my Pedersoli Trapdoor carbine with my home-made firing pin.  This is the second pin the TD has broken, and I've had two on back order from VTI since November when I bought the first replacement.  I fashioned one out of a de-priming pin from an RCBS sizing/de-priming die.  It pops the primers fine....now I need to see how it does with really ammo.

We survived over 8" of rain (more coming ) two Tornado warnings Thur. night, when we were in the cross hairs & again
yesterday afternoon .... only damage ( wind) was 200' section of board fence down the road, was listing 45 degrees to port .
Lot of standing water...with luck it wipe out the Love bug swarm in April.  Roll Eyes

Helped stuff gift bags for Lady's day at the range this morning , we set a new record over 400 bags in 40 minutes... lots of neat stuff too.
The Ranges Lady's day is next Saturday, Huge turnout last year, 319 ladies most had never shot or very little .

This year we signed out 400 openings  in less than a day and a 1/2  ...We are private range/club and ladies show great interest.
Speaks well for Shooting in general  and every discipline is well attended.

Mornin', needed that cuppa this mornin', thanks.  He**, I need that cuppa every mornin', have since I was a kid.   Grin

Gonna follow Slim's example and try to not be so offish and reticent, so I'm thinking a daily weather report from the opposite side of the country might be a start.

In Las Vegas, it was dark cloudy when I got up this morning, and windy, about 60 degrees.  NWS says today, partly cloudy, windy; high 72, winds 25 to 60; overnight tonight 42, possible rain.

Now, I'm gonna go try to start - something.

Hope thing are good for ya', Del.

Later.

I didn't sleep too well overnight so I took the day off and went back to bed for 3 hours. Feeling much better now. I finished up the fed and state taxes, and e-filed them. I'll find something else to keep me out of trouble for the rest of the day.

Where's the Cawffee this morning? I slept in this morning. Moose got a new Cadillac last week and it has all the bells and whistles. I'm getting ready to get up and fix me some breakfast. The weather has been nice. They got some snow in the Panhandle on Easter morning.
