Everyone that lives in the Dallas Texas area.
Are you guys okay?
Heard about last night's tornado today.
Hope all is well with you if you are in the Dallas area.

Thankfully, Dallas is enormous. The storms appear to have been nowhere near me, I am about 70-90 minutes away from the major areas (I am traveling at the moment, so, I really won't know for sure, but, I cannot imagine I was affected).

Eric, himself, is in the metroplex, and I believe he would have been much closer than I am, but, I think he should be OK, as well.
Glad to hear that. We have spent the past couple days with the power out for 11 hours or more. Thankfully we had a place to go with electricity just not interwebs.

I made it home today. As expected, my area of the metroplex is fine. My car is dead, though, as it appears something drained the battery over the past week. :/

It jumped fine, but, there is corrosion on the positive terminal, and it did not want to crank again (did not let it run long, though). It should all be fine, worst case, new battery.

I have had to replace the battery sooner than normal expiration, but I do live in a normally hotter temperate zone so batteries normally don't last as long as they should here anyway.
