Baro pressure changes REALLY affect me, and cause huge amounts of pain, brain swelling feeling, heart racing, a lot more. I got a weather station (the kind that has an outdoor sensor and beams info inside) that measures barometric pressure just to better track this, and the barometric changes for me matter more than just about anything else (weather-wise). From what I have read, anything beyond a .3 change from 30 which is the "normal" baro will cause increases in cardiac issues (i.e. more heart attacks reported); and so there are known vascular and other issues that result from baro changes (so, 30.3 or 29.7 would be the point of change: today for example it dropped to around 29.4 in this latest weather "bombing out" aka barometric drop). I know we're already on to the next storm, but. . .
Rikky, wow omg, that sounds terrifying re: the tree. I'm always so afraid of something like that happening. Did the tree ever show "signs" of damage? I know it doesn't necessarily even matter in these kinds of storms.
