The storms alone weren't that bad, and brought much-needed rain to the Ozarks. The tornado sirens wailed -- the worst storms hit north of Springfield, around Ash Grove -- and lightning zipped around the sky, but no big.
Except for the power, which went out last night before 9 p.m. and stayed off for several hours. As one media outlet put it, "storm-related technical problems" prevented further posting last night, and we're only now back online. Sorry for the delay. At least your daily CHATTER isn't sitting in a puddle of water in the driveway.
