Right now, Kansas City is under tornado warning, and its kind of freaking me out with Joplin and Oklahoma recently. I'm actually from Oklahoma and usually just ignore sirens but the dogs are all freaking out, and I don't know, I always think animals pick up on stuff we can't so I'm taking all the animals to the basement right now, kind of scared.

Any crazy experiences with tornadoes for you guys? If you lived in Oklahoma during 1999 you know of the infamous May 3rd tornadoes.

I live in upstate NY. No tropical storms or tornadoes. Just nonsense snow in the winter...

TS, you gotta get on a bike and ride through this tornado. Only way to conquer your fear.

Relax bro, if God throws debris at you at a hundred miles per hour it was all part of his divine plan. Nothing you can do about that.

Minnesota I think...4 years ago? Small tornado came through, went right down my street. Happened in about 3am, so my dad woke me up telling me and my family we had to get in the basement. It was really loud and windy outside. Lasted for about a half hour. Our dogs were pretty scared as well. Not like barking scared, but they just went very passive and kind of shaky. Was weird.
In the morning, we look out to see a fair amount of havoc. Three foot thick tree falling right across the neighbor's driveway, that sort of thing. Our yard was perfect though. Only one small branch from a tree got torn off.

Still, if it's a serious tornado, it can be pretty scary.

My step dad made a point he thought was funny last night.


All the natural disasters are punishment for gays and such but they mainly hit little southern towns filled with bigots. He didn't think it was a bad thing but I'd have to disagree. I don't think a tornado hitting anything can be good.

Dude, this whole year has had crazy weather. **** the Rapture. We've just had a strange year, here at least.

Usually when sirens start going off, I think it's time to seek a safer place.

I remember I was on my uni campus when the city's tornado sirens (which are on the same campus) started to go off. It was some scary shit. My dad grew up in Tornado Alley, namely Nebraska and Texas, so he taught me what to look for and what to do in those types of situations.

A tornado siren doesn't mean there's an actual tornado. You just get used to it. When there's a warning most people go outside to watch for the weather to change. Some towns are premature with sirens.

Usually they mean "you're under a tornado warning," which could mean anything from "it might tornado here soon" to "your house is currently exploding, so it is probably in your best interest to cover your head with something."

Of course sometimes they just mean it's noon on the first Monday of the month.

Stay safe TS. Oklahoma's big one yesterday missed me by like five miles.

In OKC they tested them every wednesday and I was always curious what would happen if there was a tornado at noon on a wednesday.

Same, El Reno, Friday. I only mentioned the first Monday cause that's how Weatherford does it, and there's a siren not 50 yards from my office window. It's impossible to work for those two minutes and more often than not my sinus physically reverberate.

#27
I saw it was in El Reno tearing shit up and wondered if you were in it, Steve.

The footage was insane.


EDIT: Tornado warnings suck but I worry more about other people who aren't with me. I can watch the weather where I am but I don't know what's going on elsewhere.

Nah I'm on the other side of town. Which was lucky because me and three other adults and two kids and a dog would not have enjoyed having my mom's house collapse on top of the basement door while we were stuck down there without even room to all sit down

You'll more than likely be fine. Honestly, Tornadoes generally have a pretty narrow path. Just watch for where it is, and if it hasn't touched down you'll be fine. I almost put in to listen to Gary England, because he's a soothing guy, but Gary England isn't in Illinois.

All you have to do is watch Mike Morgan. If he's wearing an unspeakably hideous red tie with sequins on it, you know shit's brewing.

Gary England would out weather cast Mike Morgan any day. This is so damn annoying, Missouri has a city called Clinton, and they're like, "there's stuff goin' down in Clinton," and I keep thinking, "shit I should make sure my extended family's okay,"

We were all painting in a house before it passed us. We didn't give a shit. One of my friends was stuck in a cellar with two shitfaced, pissed off parents who kept fighting. I think she almost left to face the possible tornado.

"'nado"? Really? Why do we shorten everything? Is "tor" really that difficult to type? It just grates my nerves when people shorten stuff stupidly. Like when people call orange juice "OJ" or when people say totes instead of totally.

Also, since I've seemed to pull in the other Oklahomans, do you guys remember May 3rd? I was in Kingfisher and we could see Dover being torn up pretty hardcore.

How can you not remember May 3... I remember having a track meet that afternoon (elementary school), then having a little league baseball game that evening. It started hailing when we got there, like right as I got out of the car, so my reaction was to run under the awning on top of the field's bleachers, naturally, rather than to, erm, GET BACK IN THE CAR YOU LITTLE DERP.

Went home, watched houses blow up on TV. The big ass tornado that went through Moore was on the ground SW of here, lifted, poofed, came back, touched back down east of here and then shot up some steroids.

I was 8 we took cover and everything, everyone was legitimately scared. I remember them saying it was like the biggest tornado ever and how they wanted to call it an F6. I also remember some kid at baseball practice being all like "my dad says there are tornadoes elsewhere in the state," and we just started calling him an idiot. We were asshole first graders.

Yeah, that's kinda how I was about the Murrah bombing, everyone seemed to have a story about feeling it or some shit, but I just don't remember that day at all, but I was in Tuttle when that happened. I did have a kid I played with who died in it though, so something happened. The '90s kinda sucked for Oklahoma looking back on them.
