Tornado Season

Looks like many more storms forming in the Southern Plains. Hoping everyone will be spared damage. Gary, keep us posted on how things are in OK City.
Best regards,

Basil

Tornados are terrifying. When we lived in The Woodlands, (TX), which is about 30 miles north of Houston, we had a couple of close calls. We did, however, live through a direct hit by a hurricane and several severe tropical storms...not nice.

I'm certainly glad that I live in a state w/o those. I had a devil wind come through years ago and that was enough*. What storms we do get leave everything standing, we just need to shovel out.

*On average Maine gets 2 F1s per year.

This time around It has something to do with the jet stream. It seems Kansas and Missouri have caught the latest destruction. We take it one day at a time around here. The local TV weather experts are in hog heaven. They cut into everyone's favorite TV shows with wild abandon, and drone on and on about wind shear, clouds, winds, blah blah blah ad finitum. They branch out and do the same with locations that are several hundreds of miles away and have absolutely no relevance to my neighborhood whatsoever. When it starts to look like we've got a big one coming, most people go outside to watch. Obviously, we go to our safe place if it gets serious. All one has to do is exercise common sense and make sure the homeowner's policy is paid up. Everybody worries furiously about the safety and security of our family, our friends, neighbors and loved ones, but not too much about ourselves or somebody's barn or shed.

I'm going to assume that means you're safe. I was going to ask but I think you would have mentioned it.

Sadly, last night there were some fatalities (2 in a mobile home park) and a lot of damage and injuries (at a hotel on I-40) last night at a neighboring city (El Reno - home of old Fort Reno and the federal penitentiary) about 15 miles west of us.
