    I was hoping Torcon was some weird name for a hottie. Never heard of it, thankfully.

    Don't remember seeing pink on the NWS convective outlook map ever...hell, red is pretty rare.

    Pink is Flying Cow Weather.

    Me too.

    Good to know there is now an early warning system. Tornados a freaky. Sounds like a freight train coming at you.

    I rather deal with hurricanes. You have a week to prepare. And like the ones from Miami, they are way over hyped.

    I’m in the Tulsa metro, everyone is pretty cautious today. Today has a weird feeling to it. Myself and another guy plan on strapping into his race car. See y’all on the other side.

    I believe in driving at a 90 degree angle from the storm if you can.

    Western Kentucky. Thats like 4-5 hrs away. About as close to me as Atlanta or Cleveland. Weve had tornados on rare occasion here sure. But not where we have a season. Its a freak occurence. Its like saying getting 3-6 inches of snow in central Georgia is something you need to consider when moving there as a possibility of life. I mean....it can and has happened a few times...but...

    I've seen some wild shit from both tornadoes and hurricanes. My hometown had an F4 hit back in the early 80s that took a shopping center off the map. One guy has a steel beam in his front yard with 7 feet sticking out of the ground. The other 7-8 feet is under ground.

    Yeah, Oklahoma is on a whole other level. Although I have now lived here 8 years and I haven't seen one yet.

    Radar looks pretty rough in northern Oklahoma and Kansas. Stay on your toes.

    The Moore F5 tornado that hit in 2013 happened on May 20th, and it was also a Monday. Crazy odd parallel. Wouldn't be surprised if there was another F5 tornado today.

    I'm currently cooking a buttload of hotdogs and hamburgers for the 20 people at my house. We have one of those big saferooms and a backup generator, so I think my house is fallback delta for my local family.

    Thanks for thinking of us, but all those noise and destruction I'm enduring is coming from grade school kids around me, not 'freight trains'.

    I'll sit on my back porch and get some good vid footage for you guys. If I'm not on here tomorrow with said footage, you'll know what happened.

    Good news: the tornado threat has been reduced bc of cold air moving thru as part of this front. The bad news..major flooding has occurred and is forecast over large parts of OK.

    All clear here. I got to grill a little and throw a football around with some kids. It was a good time!

    Hope my deer hump brothers out near Stillwater are okay. They got worked far worse than central OK.

    Sirens going off in Midtown Tulsa. Think it already passed through. Claremore and Verdigris next up. Watching KOTV-6 and besides the tornados we are going to have a bunch of flooding.

    I'm still cutting and hauling shit from that asshole and it seems endless. Trees just keep falling.

    Most have no idea what that faker did.

    8 months later and you can't spit without hitting a tarped roof.
