Interestingly enough, I just got back from a quick run to the DQ, and I noticed several a/c coming from SE to NW, which is a little bit “around” the normal CLE arrival patterns that I see over Medina (my city). It was kind of neat to see them flying out and around the big menacing thunderhead (kind of hard to pinpoint it, since it was getting dark quickly) to the north of us, then dropping in what seemed like a somewhat steeper descent than “normal.” It may have just been the angle of perspective. Anyhow, I can pretty much guarantee that this was one of 'em that I saw.
I have a feeling the “tornado” warning was just law enforcement officers being a little jumpy though. Even the local news stations kept it low-key.
