Also, an interesting tidbit. I decided to watch Band of Brothers for the umpteenth time the other day, and then went to Google a few things I was wondering about. Came upon a bit of info I found facinating. It seems that the neither the 506 PIR nor the 501 were part of 101 ABD TO&E for the entire war (seems it was only the 502, the two glider regts and an airborne arty btn, everything else was attched). The 506 was officially attached only after the German surrender and the 501 never was. Although when the division was reactivated in the 50s, it was made up of the 501, 502 and 506.

It was even stranger with the 82nd. They started the war with 505, 504 and 2 glider regts). Seems they left the 504 in Italy and jumped into Normandy with 2 attached PIRs, one of which they kept for the duration. Not sure what happened to the second one.

Anyway, thought someone would find that interesting.

EDIT: Now that I think about it, I'm not sure if the 82nd had one glider regiment or 2.

We had an EF-3 tornado plow through our neighborhood last night. Seven trees in our yard went down due to the 135+ mph vortex winds, but none of them struck the house. We had some minor roof damage, but not much else. Unfortunately, many of our neighbors did not fare as well.

One went through just a few miles north of us too.

radar-glad you're mostly OK. No one in the neighborhood seriously hurt, I hope? Any hail damage?

We had an EF-3 that came within a few hundred yards of our house in Minnesota (!) two years ago. Pretty scary stuff. Superficial home damage, but some neighbors had lots worse.

We had plenty of warning and I don't believe there were any serious injuries. We were about 5 blocks from the most serious damage.

It's strange having TV news vans and emergency crews parked in front of your house. No hail in this particular storm cell, but baseball-sized hail was reported in nearby areas. Duke Energy did a great job of getting the power lines back up.

Wow, glad you were spared, radar. I saw some pictures of the damage around the state.

As far as I know, we just had some thunder and a lot of wind with our rain last night.
