(Washington Post)   Washington Post: Sure, Oklahoma, you had some pretty bad tornadoes. But we've got tornado problems, too. Why, we've had two in the past year alone and another one could be really, really bad for us. Keep us in your hearts as you rebuild   ( washingtonpost.com) divider line

Carn: For you folks that don't live in DMV, people round these parts tend to panic at any weather or geologic event of any kind other than "sunny", so this is merely WaPo's response to the number of concerned readers who may or may not be experiencing tornado panic due to events that happened halfway across the country and are exceedingly unlikely to happen here.  Still, the conditions do sometimes occur so it's not unreasonable to get some information out there.

Man, the other day I was driving on the beltway, and the sun was like RIGHT IN MY EYES.  Well, not in my eyes, but it was in they sky and tracking me.  So I tried changing lanes, but that didn't work.  So I tried changing lanes again, but this time I didn't use my turn signal.  Damn sun was still pointing directly at me.  I tried to hide by getting 2 feet from the truck in front of me, but that didn't work either.  I noticed an exit to the left, so I took it.  A couple a-holes in the two lanes to my left honked at me and totally let the sun know what I was up to.  Jerks - do they not know how important I am?  I moved here from the midwest to put my communication degree to good use - I am far too important to get sunburn in my eyes.

Anyways, I eventually found a bar in DuPont that had the windows down and hid out there.  Totally charmed a girl by telling her my five year plan to start up a non-profit and got digits.  What did the sun get?  nothing, biatches.

How DARE a local paper compose of analysis of tornado risk now that the dangers of tornadoes are elevated in the minds of their readers.

When people say "east-coast bias" I hear "nowheresville butthurt".
