I was in California and missed the tornados. 'Tis the season so I'm certain that there will be more here in tornado alley.

I drove from central Kansas to Oklahoma City on Friday afternoon then back Saturday. There were storms ALL around us, we arrived in Oklahoma City about an hour after the Norman tornado, the Wichita tornado was about 2 hours in front of us, and the Salina tornado was about a half hour after we passed.

Call it fate, luck, God, or Karma, but the entire two days I got lightly sprinkled on and had to turn on the windshield wipers exactly twice.

My niece was in Oklahoma at "Little Sahara" and got some pretty intense phone video of one near there.

Reuters reported 120 tornados in the 2 day span with all 6 deaths in Oklahoma. The amazing thing is that the count was that low.

I just got home in Kansas early Tuesday morning about 2:00 am. I didn't see any problems left over from storms that went through here.

My wife is a 911 dispatcher. She is always amazed at how low the injury/death rates tend to be.

She is convinced that when she sounds the sirens most people interpret it as "something interesting is happening, go out on the porch and look". Judging from the number of people I see (as I am out in the yard looking, lol) she is correct...

Being a big fan of reed timmer and the tiv etc I'd be the same, if heard the sirens the first thing I would do is check cameras then run outside.

Knowledge is knowing that tornados are dangerous. Wisdom is knowing to run down to the basement and hide in the fraidy hole when the sirens go off.

RE: Everyone ok ???
News ran a small story tonight about the continuing injuries that clinics are seeing. Seems that FAR more people are being injured (though probably relatively minor) in the cleanup than the storms themselves. They didn't elaborate, but I suppose they are seeing cuts, scrapes, and lifting injuries.

I've seen 2 full blown tornadoes on the ground, many many tails, always from a safe distance (again relatively speaking) the closer one was 8 blocks away, the farther one over a mile.

Many years ago while in high school the sirens went off and while the students were being herded into the shelter 5 or 6 of us made a beeline for the parking lot to see. There were no less than 7 tails visible in the air. None actually descended to the ground, but it still counts among the more awesome things I have ever witnessed.
