Loved all the rain, lighting and thunder tonight.

Off an on rain here and chilly. Shreddy still wanted to go for an evening explore of the garden. It wasn't raining when he went out, but it was wet.

Weather

My weather in Panamá is 85 degrees, medium breeze from the North. This is finally the start of rainy season which will turn this country into a lush, green tropical paradise.

We are due to get the aftermath of the tornados today. Storms, high winds, etc. I'm staying in and hoping the storm stays out!

Very high winds. At least it didn't start to really rain until this morning.

We have a lot of trees in our back yard so I don't like to see the wind coming. We've had 2 trees come down since we've lived here. One went between our house and the neighbor's and the other one landed in the yard and just barely hit the deck. We've been lucky so far.

I have friends in Arkansas, waiting to hear from them. Their phones are not ringing through.

I used to live in the tornado belt but thankfully was never actually in one.

Here is why there are so many tornadoes in the U.S.

" A one-of-a-kind combination of weather factors make the United States the twister capital of the world, with the ominous funnels 10 times more common in the states than anywhere else on the planet, scientists say.

The four main ingredients all are geographical, all unique to America's borders: a massive mountain wall to the west, a warm ocean to the southeast, a cold-air “shield” to the north – and above these particular latitudes, a narrow river of wind, the jet stream, that surges eastward at hundreds of miles per hour.

“I call the area from the Rockies to the Appalachians and from the Gulf Coast to the Canadian border the ‘tornado super bowl’ of the world,” said Ernest Agee, a professor at Purdue University, affiliated with the school’s Earth, Atmospheric and Planetary Sciences Department.

“Other places have tornadoes, that’s for sure, but not as many,” Agee said."
