Fraidy Hole Time Again

Two tornado warnings today in our immediate area with one passing over the clinic where my daughter works. Fortunately they have a basement. High anxiety time! Hope all the rest of you are not in harm's way from this crazy weather.

Godspeed to you and yours, and keep watching the sky. Having lived in Tornado Alley I know how short the warnings can be.

I did a 90 day detail in an underground facility outside of Kansas City. Parking and everything was underground.
At first I thought it was kinda weird working like that, but with the almost continuous tornado alerts, watches, and late night "Take Cover!!" calls from the hotel desk, a bunch of us were wishing that the underground facility had a built-in hotel too.

A few of us were downtown KCMO one weekend when the tornado sirens went off.
Everybody just disappeared. We had no idea where they went - they were just gonzo.

Best place I've ever been if you like steak though!

When I first moved from California to the foothills of the Appalachian range in 1996, my sisters asked me if we have tornados in the mountains of East Tennessee. I replied: "I live here, don't I??!! Heck NO we don't have tornados here!!" Sometimes cowardice is OK.

Having lived in "tornado alley" once upon a time there is nothing wrong with figuring out where you need to take "cover'. I thought I got away from it all when I finally settled down here on the Atlantic Coast, but unfortunately we "un benefit" from tornadoes here.... We had some in the mid-nineties that tore up the beach.....

Keep your weather eye out for the storms....
