I don't think we've seen anywhere near as much severe weather here since the spring of 2011. We did at first in march of 2012, then after that there were a few storms, then the drought caused it to drop off until the remnants of Isaac came through. Barely saw anything good here last year save for April 10th and May 31st. Otherwise, the storms were below severe status and/or the watches expired pretty early.
