Independence, MO had some rain last night, but it was just an ordinary spring shower.  Good sleeping music. 

There is a tornado &/or thunderstorm warning for Cass & Johnson Counties in Missouri this afternoon and evening.  My area is brightly overcast at the moment, but no precipitation.

I'm hearing reports of major rain and lots of large hail. Is
everyone still alive and unhurt?

Rain and thunder here, northwest of Standing Stones.
Flooding in low-lying areas, and that's about it....although
the birds outside seem to think it's perfect weather for
loading up on bird seed.
