    Hope everything came out well. My folks live up in Larksfield - sounds like they are unscathed. At least it waited until I had left Wichita and headed home.

    Appreciate the concern and the personal messages! I think since I've been on RJ I've done 5 or 6 "TORNADO WARNING" titled threads. I was expecting some sort of comment about the repeat. Looks like we largely dodged the "winds" so to speak, albeit I didn't go to the gym, but ended up cleaning up branches. Mostly electric poles and out building damage with a few exceptions. No injuries or deaths, which is amazing.

    I heard about it- the news team reporting even went into the storm shelter on the air for a brief moment. That's nuts! I hope everybody's ok.

    From what they have shown on the local Wichita Market news, there was a huge super cell in the Oklahoma City area. Sounds like a few were killed as a result of the storms.

    KSN Channel 3, the NBC affiliate, did have everyone in the station go to the storm shelter. There are a few in the market that believe the chief meteorologist at that station is a bit over dramatic. However, no-one had confirmation of where the storm was located.

    Two of our dearest friends live in Wichita. She was concerned when she saw the tornado chaser vehicles parked in the mall parking lot. Hopefully everyone comes through this unscathed.

    My street got hit pretty hard a few days ago in Texas. The tornado was a mile wide. Luckily I only had roof damage from a tree landing on top of it, and breaking a couple rafters. The houses down the street, however, were missing roofs or completely destroyed. It was nice to see the town band together and do everything they could to help each other out in the aftermath though. I love being from a small town.

    Wow, hearing "drjon" above me talk, I think we were VERY lucky this time around, it could have been alot worse. They say most of the bad stuff is to shift east into Missouri and Arkansas. Hopefully it won't be a bad day for anybody!

    I heard the Texas tornadoes were really horrible and loss of life.

    Probably has something to do with the lack of support those backwood I breeders gave to Hurricane Sandy relief. I certainly hope when the elected politicians from the south come begging for federal dollars, the elected politicians from the east will return the favor and let people suffer for 3 months.

    Will the GOP asshats that voted against federal aid for Hurricane Sandy relief will be voting against the federal bill that will send aid to storm ravaged OKC?

    While we are talking about GOP asshats....did you know that Texas take back more in federal dollars than it pays in, yet, is the quickest to bad mouth government? Just the facts.
