    That is a spectacular picture. Wow, Mother Nature in all her glory ready to rock and roll.
    Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we are here we might as well dance.

    Live simply. Love generously. Care deeply. Speak kindly.

    Dang....this scares me! We are moving to the heart of tornado alley in a few weeks! Our new house does not have a tornado shelter either... maybe we need to invest in one!

    That's a spectacular picture if it's real. Something about it seems a little bit off though, maybe it's just me.

    Tornado's suck. I've lived in tornado alley over half of my life, and there hasn't been a year since I've been in Kansas that I haven't ducked for cover.

    Good job Yerf. I have been trying to look up the weather for that area during that time. It was too awesome of a picture.

    Fancy naming a street, where people will actually have to live, "Tornado alley".

    It really is just asking for trouble and the developers should have known better.

    Speaking as an existentialist, sometimes I am almost beside myself with rage.

    Anyone who currently resides there should get in touch with the local authorities and request that the name be changed immediately. Something like "Gentle breezy avenue" would be quite nice.

    ......or even "swinging titties lane"
    A man could lose himself in a country like this.

    My wife knew those two people killed by the tornado Friday night. They pulled over to wait out the driving rain, only to be square in the path of the tornado. Their car was thrown 150 yards into the field. My wife is having a tough time with it.

    tornados scare the crap out of me. We lived just outside of St Louis for 4 yrs.... many scary bolts to the "bunker" with kids & pets. I think it's the sirens that totally freak me out. They just sound so foreboding ... even better the dogs (2 labs and 2 yorkies) would all howl... drove me crazy.....

    I can remember on July 4th 1998, I was pregnant with #2 we had been at the park by the arch for the big festival they have.... the weather was getting iffy it was like 100 degrees... we had taken the train in from the IL side. So we left... total mayhem struck about 15 minutes after we pulled into our garage. We had an oak tree in our backyard that was whipping around and the top touched the ground a few times... time to get in the bunker and listen to the weather radio....

    I hope everyone stays safe this summer... mother nature can be quite something.....

    A couple of years ago, our wx alert radio started going off with tornado warning after tornado warning for our area in the wee hours of the morning. One in particular stands out in my mind, as I drew a line in my mind through the areas that would be affected and we were right in the path. That night was scary, as while we did not get hit, you could tell a funnel was close with all the micro-bursts and downdrafts that were roaring outside.

    Outside of riding out a hurricane through the middle of the night (they commonly spawn tornadoes as well), which seems commonplace for me, that night was one of the scariest moments of my life. And this from a person who has been at the helm of a 19 foot sport-fisher in the Keys trying to keep a waterspout parallel to the side of the boat, while 8 years old.

    I didn't think that picture looked real. Something was off to me.

    TP - Definitely invest in a tornado shelter, or line a room of your house with steel and cinderblocks. Definitely worth the investment if you are going to live in tornado alley!
