    Here's the tornado that touched down by me yesterday. Luckily no fatalities. Just damage to structures.

    Good to hear. Those things are scary.

    No doubt. Something about how random they are. Hurricanes cause so much damage, yet they're avoidable if you're smart. Tornadoes just come about so suddenly that you really have no time but to just take cover and hope for the best.

    Yeah, no thanks. I'll take my chances with grizzlies, ass-loads of snow and the predicted "Super Volcano" eruption.

    Btw, I just heard the official word the other day - the Tetons received 193 inches of snow. In the month of February alone. :eek:

    To be honest, you're in the best spot for the super volcano. You'll be dead before you know what happens. The rest of us will be stuck waiting for our time to come at a slower pace.

    That's my thinking as well. I have no "exit plan" if that puppy blows. I'll probably barely have time to look up and say "WTF?" :eek:

    Everyone in the Central US be weather aware tomorrow.

    Many OKC area schools are closing tomorrow due to threat of severe weather.

    Long track tornadoes, hail up to baseball size, and wind gusts to 80 mph are possible.

    In my neck ogf the woods we've had 6-8" of snow , the temp has been hovering around 32-34 F, so only accumulating 1-3". Fog has been real heavy limiting visibility to about 50-100yds

    Rained pretty hard this morning for a short time, just windy after that.

    Stuff should be forming any time now around Oklahoma City.

    Have a couple hours before we need to really watch it.

    Lots of rotation around, golf ball size hail, and torrential downpours.

    You too, coming your way eventually.

    You know, in the early morning hours when you’re sleeping.

    Thanks man. Yeah I'll set my alarm for just before it hits, like an hour before. Coffee is already ready and backpack ready to go.

    I just checked the radar and it's showing it'll hit us about 1230 am. I'll still be up then as I don't go to sleep until around 3ish. But yeah it's gonna hit hard and I don't like that curve to it...

    Possible tornado on the ground, 5 miles north of us.
    Sirens just went off.

    I went outside for a look, but too many houses and trees for me to see anything.

    It was deathly still, not a breath of wind.

    You sound like me. Hear the sirens so go outside lol. Yeah that silence isn't a good sign either.

    Torrential downpour.
    Street is a river.

    Tornado sirens sounding again, new circulation area to the south, probably 8 or 10 miles and a little west.
    I’ll have to watch that one for sure, but as they start rotating they tend to move to the right, so that would push it east of me and away.
