    Thanks a lot, Obummer! Meat horns (air raid sirens going off as I type).

    Calling all clear--boy, that was fast! Lots of damage being reported (downtown hotels air conditioning units being reported blown off roof, etc), but probably from high winds. No confirmations of touchdowns. Two semi-trucks blown over on one of the by-passes. I'm sure that will take them 10 hours to clean up--thus closing off traffic. I'm betting the east will get this--like Lexington.

    Update: They're now saying it looks like we've had some brief touchdowns. About 17k without power right now.
