I remember surviving the following storms (in order of damages/memory)
- March 2nd, 2012 Tornado Outbreak- I remember this one the most as it is the closest I have gotten to actually experiencing a major natural disaster (until March 1st, 2017). There was a F4 tornado that crossed the southern portion of my county on this day. I remember most of what happened from start to finish. roughly 6 tornadoes occurred within the Cincinnati Metro Area
- Hurricane Ike, 2008- Okay, I'll admit, it wasn't a Hurricane when it made it here, but we did get high winds and the power got knocked out for 2 hours due to Ike. I was off school for 2 days due to power outages throughout portions of the county. A tree fell over on a nearby road and knocked out some power lines. EDIT: I looked into this one and Ike did have 75 mph wind gusts in my area. so it was indeed a hurricane strength extratropical cyclone when we were impacted.
- February 28th- March 1st, 2017 Tornado Outbreak- This one featured weak tornadoes in my area, including my closest call with a tornado.
- Remnants of Tropical Storm Bill, 2015- This is #3 because of the silly jokes I made about Bill Nye the Science Guy and this storm. We got quite a bit of rain from this one, but nothing else.
- Remnants of Hurricane Isaac, 2012- Another big system from 2012, this one dumping rain over my area.
- Extratropical Cyclone Sandy, 2012- I remember this one big time, I got snow from it.
- Remnants of Tropical Storm Lee, 2011- Wow, 2011 was one active year. This one brought be cloud cover but not any rain.
- 2010-2013 United States/Mexico Drought- I remember this drought, 2010 in particular. It just wouldn't rain that summer. Whenever the weather said it would rain that summer, it was horridly off.
- December 21-24, 2004 Winter Storm- I don't have any memories outside of photos, but we have photos of the white Christmas we got in this year.
