Not wanting to see anyone hurt or worse but if one drips over Norman maybe it will drop off a decent quarterback in Gaylord Stadium

My vote is on channel 8, by the way.
The woman is adorable. She's still pretty new to this, so she makes cute mistakes and gets nervous sometimes.
They're understaffed over there unfortunately, they lost some of their veterans (who went to channel 6) and I think they're still trying to figure things out.

meyerkev: 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"


Exactly. I live in the midwest and to be frank, tornadoes are scary but a big blizzard that knocks out power or a heat wave where people lose power is far more deadly.

Of course I refuse to live in a house without a basement. Be safe Kansas-ians and Oklahomans. Tip from my Bridgeton family who had some neighbors get their homes destroyed a few years ago: When you go downstairs, grab your purse or wallet. Because if your home is destroyed and you have no ID, no nothing, it can be difficult to prove who you are to get your insurance benefits (or even if the police want to make sure those are your house ruins you are rooting around in). Plus if you can keep important documents (or copies of them) down there anyway... (if your basement is safe from flooding) that will help too.

I've never actually seen one in person but I've seen what they can do up close and personal.
/I definitely respect the damage they can do.

My street currently after the storm. It's.flooded and a tree is down just down the road.

This is my poor kitty Hank who rode the storm outside. He's all wet :-(


He's wet AND blurry faced, poor thing.

Watching a tornado form while my aunt & I were driving through a thunderstorm was one of the scariest things I've experienced. Now I'm watching a live stream of tornadoes forming less than 10 miles from where said aunt currently lives.

I moved to Philadelphia a few years ago after spending most of my life in the plains. The thunderstorms here are not in even the same ballpark.

ArcadianRefugee: Shadow Blasko: Mock26: The safest* place during a tornado is outside, in the middle of a field.


* Definition of safest may be twisted.

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

/Along with a good camera, and some form of hail shield.

//Added that last part after a rather painful experience in the 90s.

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

Have yet to witness a tornado.


I always thought it would be cool to see one up close. It ain't.

2013-05-19 07:16:38 PM  
whatever she is chasing looked more like a massive wall cloud to me than a tornado, but the view was occluded... if that was ALL tornado they are chasing a monster.

Popcorn Johnny: What size hail does it take to damage a vehicle?


Depends on the vehicle and the wind speed adding to the speed of the hail, but I've had nickle sized hail damage my roof of my car.

/really thin skin on my car though.

Obviously, the solution to this is to give more tax breaks to the rich, says Gov. Brownback every day.

I'm in Kansas City Kansas, nothing happening yet but it should start soon.

I only have 6 beers, luckily they are 6.5 percent alcohol, time to chug soon.

So Emily has been replaced by Hank, but it sounds like Hank might not be long for this chase if it's heading directly towards him.

I like how the OKC channel 4 weatherman keeps asking "is X still with us?" The phrasing sounds like he is asking if someone has died yet.

About ping pong ball for the hood and starting at egg size windshields.  I managed t grab a space in the drive-thru lane at a closed down bank by my place.  The hood on my last car looked like a golf ball skin from hail dents, not gonna risk that again.
