    Crazy weather here today - Tornado

    So summer is here. Had our first tornado sirens today. A town in my county is totally devastated.





    A 2-year old died, another child in critical condition. 20 people missing and 150 injured

    geesh!!!
    http://www.allpoetry.com/Grunts%20Girl

    We dallied under
    Vine maples and sapling alders
    Searched for lady slippers
    But instead
    Found blackberry riots and
    Desiccated branches

    An old skid road
    Brought ghost ferns and
    Hollows filled with
    Skunk cabbage
    While waves wrapped
    Intricate lacings of weeds
    'Round mule spinners

    His cyanotic eyes
    Were hard enough to make
    The sun turn tail and
    Tender enough to attract me
    To his world of illusion

    Tornadoes suck!

    Like I told you earlier though, storms are plentiful here.

    I've been through blizzards and hurricanes, but never a tornado. I am now in a tornado area and it makes me very nervous. Every Wed. at noon they test the emergency tornado alarm, scares me spitless for a few seconds before I realize what day and time it is

    My dad, I miss him every day.

    I'm with you! Having lived in Southern Ca in my younger days and now in Washington I'm used to earthquakes and they don't bother me. Tornados and hurricanes would scare the s**t out of me.

    I do love thunderstorms! I drive my friends in Oklahoma and Texas crazy when I visit cause I want to stay outside and watch them and they keep telling me to get inside.

    Prayers to the familes N friends of all involved in such devastation!!

    I have survived more hurricanes than I care to count, including TWO what were called "once in a 100 yr storms" ( and NO I am not that old)...2 weeks ago, we had some tornado like weather......I considered it a test drive for hurricane prep...our katrina generators worked fine...Thank God!!!
    A Canadian friend pointed out to me the other day how irratic US weather is....all she has is snow...30 R 40 feet of it..but just snow....
    I have learned no matter where you live....be prepared......you can count on it here from June- October Hurricane season in LA... first aid kit, 2-3 weeks supply of meds at all times, cash on hand, flashlights and radio ready, cars tank topped off all the time, generators, gasoline supply, canned food and lotsa bottled water... and text mesg feature on mobile phones....all the things we didnt have and could not get during the weeks that followed katrina.....
    Good luck to all in areas of tornados and hurricanes this summer....stay safe! Be prepared!!

    That's one of the big things that my church teaches all the time, you never know when you may be hit with a natural or financial disaster.

    Be like a Boy Scout. Be Prepared!!!

    Especially when California decides to slide off into the ocean from an earthquake.
