Keep your rods safe! RUN!!

Thanks for the report. I used to love thunderstorms but not after I learned how dangerous they are. Now I head for the great indoors when they start. I had a Chow Chow years back and thunder was the only thing to make her shake like a kitten.
Be safe.

Im lucky to have power, but it was perfectly sunny here too, I was thinking of going fishing and I could bring a raincoat and be ok........ I am happy I didn't go, I was even planning on Catfishing.

BE PREPARED, ITS THE WORST STORM I HAVE WITNESSED. I am 75% positive Lightning struck in the field thats about a rock tossing distance from my house

Awww man! Remember my previous post about my Chow? Well, I haven't been able to pry my Border Collie off my lap for the past hour. He is NOT a lap dog! :naughty: Poor guy is really sweating.
It got really nasty here in Dallas for 45 minutes and now it's mainly thunder and lightning. Lost electricity twice for a few minutes. Time to fix dinner before the microwave is nixed. :lol:
Please be careful everyone!

I think the Catfishing trip might still be on :lol::lol::lol::D

Seriously though, I am just worried about catching bait...... Kinda :D

Maybe the Channel Cats and possibly a few sturgeon will be on the move with the sudden rise in the Willamette.

BEST OF LUCK WITH KEEPING YOUR POWER. (Don't mean to steal a quote) BE SAFE, THERE IS LOTS OF LIGHTNING AND ROLLING THUNDER LIKE I HAVE NEVER HEARD BEFORE. STAY AWAY FROM GLASS WINDOWS JUST IN CASE.

It's not over...

It's not over...

Don't be too casual about this storm! There have been numerous TORNADOES reported all over the area! This is not a minor storm,trees are coming down and traffic is a nightmare. I just heard that Portland has had 221 lightning strikes. Stay inside if you can and make sure your pets are safe as well.
Be safe.
