Automotive > Sustained Tornado Season

Sustained Tornado Season

This is the first time I've seen tornado threats persist in such a sustained state. This has been days of threats and warnings.

The weather prognosticators do not mask their disappointment very well when things don't spin up to a tornado.

We just had two pass through our area after 11pm. One of them spun up really quickly and traveled a while. One hotel destroyed. Damage in various parts of the city. Still monitoring severe weather at 12:30am. I should go to bed. The real threat has passed.

We have church members scattered all over the Metro area and the outskirts, so I always have someone to worry about. So far, all are safe.

What cracks me up are the people who seem to desperately want it to be them. It might pass miles from where they are, but to hear them tell it, it was right on the front porch. Garners lots of pity and attention. Meanwhile, someone, somewhere is literally picking up the pieces of their lives.

I should go to bed, but this is too much fun.

I rarely worried about the weather in NYC and heavy snow storms that forced the mayor to ban all traffic were just fun. Imagine standing in the middle of a major avenue with no cars coming at you. Down here in Florida, weather worry is a constant. Sylvan paradise, intellectual hellhole and, apparently, about to be wiped out by weather.

It would be nerve-wracking to have all those alerts because tornados seem to be so random when compared to rivers where you'd know if you're in the floodplain or not.

A few nights ago one spun up so fast it surprised everyone and resulted in 2 dead and 29 hospitalized.

And here we are in 'rainy season' not having a drop of rain--instead temps in the high 80s, full sun, 12 MPH breezes--beautiful 'tourist' weather.
Stay safe!

I am sick of being on h igh alert. I have room in our cellar for friends and neighbors like you but it is not my happy place. I told Ted last night I did not want to go down is under the car port. oddly enough, I slept very well.

Thank you, Jeri. We have one as well, but I never enter it. This high alert is wearying. Be well.
