EmmaLou: I know I'm looking forward to this evening. I live in Lincoln, NE. Every time the sirens go off, puerile in this part of the country wonder why we still live here.


Nobody lives in the breadbasket because they want to. It's like this train, it can only go where the rails take it.

Yeah. F*ck that noise.


I've been in 7. Unless it's an EF-4 or better, you'll survive if you keep your wits about you and know what to do when crap gets bad.

/Problem is, you don't know if it's an EF-4 or better until after it's killed you and everyone you know.

Yea, holding on to a leather belt tied to a pipe will stop a full blown twister from sucking you away to Oz.


Are you trying to tell me that wasn't a documentary recorded in real-time? Get the f*ck outta town!

You mean the *best place to be in a tornado.

Only experienced my first halfway decent hail storm last year (about the size of a quarter); I'd been in pea-sized hail before).

GoPro should hook up with Red Bull and get some people to don helmets with video cameras and go run towards tornadoes.

Ever since I got my new car I seem to attract hail like never before. If there is golf ball sized hail ANYWHERE in Ohio it will find my car.

/RX-8 has a REALLY thin skin on it, so I have lots of speed dimples in my car now.

Why must people say "pray" in times of stress? They must know after the 3rd or 10th time that it doesn't farking work.

And by "bumpy", subby means "terrifying and lethally dangerous."

Shadow Blasko: iheartscotch: / last time this happenes the amateur weather spotters actually caused more damage then the twister

15 years ago I would have fought you over those words... Now I just nod and go back to looking at GR3


Yeah; there were in the neighborhood of 30 to 45 cars following a damned twister around last year. Actually caused 4 or 5 pretty nasty wreaks. The twister went up and over the town, not actually causing any damage in town.

/ that was the luckiest day ever; that twister was headed straight toward downtown. It would have taken half the town.

Dear God,

Please send that tornado a bit northeastern and hit Topeka instead.

Thank you,

Warthog: The camera crew on the live feed just blew through a red light.  Do they get to do that?


TWC pays the tickets.

/Part of the reason that assnozzle Reed Timmer and crew lost their ride with Discovery Channel was because they filmed themselves doing REALLY stupid crap like that... One time they blew past an ambulance, in a no passing zone, with the cameras rolling. That was pretty much the beginning of the end for them. (Or so I have been told)

//Also one of the big reasons I stopped chasing.

To be fair, stormchasing is a lot like Las Vegas to meteorologists.

Man, it must suck when the spotters come through and then there's a twister, too. Must be a lot worse than either one alone.

I remember reading somewhere of a tornado going through the screen of a drive through movie that was playing Twister during the scene where they are at the drive thru movie

aevorea: "Let's move out to the Midwest," the boyfriend says. "Tornadoes aren't that bad," he says.

Yeah. F*ck that noise.


You've got to put it in perspective.

Tornados wipe out EVERYTHING in their path which is about 1 half mile wide and 10 miles long.
Hurricanes wipe out EVERYTHING in the state of New Jersey (or Florida or the Carolinas, etc).
Earthquakes wipe out EVERYTHING within N miles of their epicenter (and occasionally trigger tsunamis which wipe out entire COUNTRIES on the other side of the ocean).
Floods wipe out EVERYTHING that's within their floodplain which can be miles wide and hundreds or thousands of miles long.
Every once in a while, a really, really, really bad thunderstorm will roll through and knock down some power lines, and drop a branch on some people's roofs.

The midwest has it pretty good as far as "OH SHIAT weather goes"

/I know, still not as bad as when the grammar Nazis come through


I know your laughing, but the SCARIEST thing I have ever EVER seen in regards to severe weather was last February/March when the tornadoes came through Kentucky, and I was less than a THREE MILES from where I was living at the time.. and I saw a news crew on the corner.. and there was Jim Cantore.

I'm not kidding either. I've seen things while storm chasing that would make any sane person crap themselves in horror, but seeing Jim Cantore in the same zip code as my mail box scared the hell out of me in a way I can not describe.

/I know this sounds like a joke, but i swear to god its true.
