Every so often I turn the weather channel on. In one report they said that yesterday there were 50+ tornadoes in OK alone. Not all of them touched down long enough to do any damage. And a lot of them were out on the plains.

Oh dear. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that you will be okay, nothing exciting.

It looks like the town tornado/bad weather siren is on a tall post in my backyard at the new house, was looking at it on Google Maps. Maybe I will be sleeping in the basement...

No sirens last night! And rain always helps me to sleep better, so I happily greeted an overcast but dry sky this morning.
And thank you for your concern. I do appreciate it.

I thought of that when you mentioned moving to WY. I am also concerned for SimonBaker. They are having their problems also this morning.

It might sound selfish of me, but I do wish we had a system where those who at this time of year are in harms way for tornadoes would report in even to say good night or good morning to let us know that they are all right. We folks here in Massachusetts are not immune to tornadoes. We have had a few in years past and know well the damaged they can create. I am one of those folks who do turn into the weather channel specially during storm time. I have too many friends all over the country. And I do worry about them.

I even have a friend who is a year or so older than me. She always tells me that she is in more danger from the Kodiak Bears on the island than from Alaska's weather. On the few times I visited her in the early 70's, I was terrified of those BIG, BIG bears. I refused to leave her porch. I was quite content to gut and prepare the fish for smoking and hanging up in the trees.
