    That map looks a little better for OKC than another one I saw. May go to our west.

    It is the end of May so it is starting to track northwards.
    These last 15 days of May are traditionally the most dangerous for Oklahoma and the Texas Panhandle.

    Funny thing is that tornados usually follow a similar path.
    Certain towns and cities are notorious for tornados.
    Memphis, TX and Moore OK

    What about Houston?

    I'm interviewing for a job there.

    Too close to the Gulf.
    Most tornados there are weaker.

    If you live near or in Houston you have to know where the closest waterways are to your house and where they are in terms of water levels.

    It sucks that this is going to start really getting bad at dark.

    I remember there used to be a storm chasers show on the weather channel or discovery channel. I think some of them were from OK and they shot a lot of tornadoes in OK.

    I used to go up 287 a lot between Fort Worth and Amarillo because I have a place up in Colorado.

    Anytime in late May you will see about 15-30 of the storm chaser's trucks parked at the store in towns like Childress, TX.

    You will never in your life see a sky turn green like you do in that part of Texas into Oklahoma.

    make sure to study Houston Flood maps and pipelines closely before you buy a house in Houston.

    This was always fascinating to me: A guy I know from SW Kansas said he has never seen a tornado before. Granted, he only lived there for 18 years. The amazing part is, his 85 year old mother who has lived there her whole life still has never seen one.

    Tornados ought to leave Memphis alone and wipe its neighbor, Estelline, off of the map. Estelline has population of 160 people and is the worst speed trap in Texas! Those people make a living off of highway 287.

    I agree, Estelline TX rank #1 speed trap in the nation.
