I like weather but. . .

. . . I'm glad I live in a place where weather forecasters don't have to tell people to get underground if they don't want to risk their lives.

I like extreme weather, but the ultraviolence of tornadoes scares me as much as it fascinates. And we don't even get big tornadoes here, let alone ones that can play poltergeist with a car park in a matter of seconds.

That's the single most unreal image I've seen from Oklahoma today (that I'm going to comment on at least. As a parent of young children I don't have any words for what happened at the elementary school). There was a little one near Wellington a couple of years ago, and you can still see where it went when you drive by. What took place in Moore is surreal by comparison.

the one that seemed most unreal to me was the one that showed strees, driveways and things that looked like matchsticks. every ne of those driveways used to be a house.

I know, we see the same stuff every season and it never gets any less surreal.
