In case anybody missed it, The eastern seaboard had 10 separate Tornado/Transitioning Mesocyclone events prompting Tornado Warnings at the same time, and this is just the warm front!

Wild weather - beltway drive was like whitewater rafting...can't imagine what this would have been like if it slammed into one of our cold spells! We would need a term for bigger than a kahuna.
