Random Weather Thought


As a kid, when the "tornado sirens" sounded, you were of the belief that those sounding the alarm were privy to more information than you were.

That's certainly not true anymore, is it? With Delkus and Finfrock giving us second by second coverage, those sounding the alarms don't have some "secret" info that we don't, right?

(But, as a kid, there was nothing more exciting than being pulled out of bed and heading to the neighbors storm/bomb shelter. "Exciting" as a kid. Probably "nerve-racking" for the parents.)

What is the weather in Europe? Their weather must be bad just like their Gas Prices. If you think the weather is bad here, it is much worse overseas.

I was up that night (morning) as the storms blew through and there is NO DOUBT the weather guys/gals included Plano. But, my gosh, if it's crashing down all around you, do you really need someone on TV to include your community specifically in a bulletin that includes all the communities around yours plus a dang radar map that you can clearly see the storm and where it is headed? Nice dodge, Plano. You screwed up because whoever is in charge was sleeping, that's all.

When I was kid we would go to the neighbors cellar in a storm. Once we were all huddled in there like a bunch of protestant Annie Franks in a really bad storm listening to it roar and crap clanging off the metal vent pipe. Suddenly, it became way too light in there and the wind was coming into the cellar, throwing up dirt which was getting in our eyes and stinging our skin. A woman I don't know who, started screaming the "The door,the door, somebody get the door,oh my God the door is blowing off." One of our other neighbors grabbed the rope that was tied to it and pulled it back down and tied it off to a hook on the wall. A few minutes later the wind just stopped-dead still. I can remember being very confused later at the owners standing in front of their house while he berated her about something. I mean I felt glad to be alive and he's freaking out on her about something at a time like this? It seems he didn't appreciate having to ride a tornado out in his house while all the neighbors were safe and sound in his own cellar.
The End
