We had a couple of small twisters in Oklahoma last night. One of those wasn't to far from home.

I guess Broken Arrow had a small one. Not too much damage from what I am hearing.

There's one 2 miles or less from downtown Moore that was devastated.  Unbelievable what people are enduring out there!

Be careful you guys. Watching it on TWC, west of St Louis is looking nasty.

Saw a tornado right before dark moving across the 169 HWY just north of the town when another tornado dropped down right behind it, we came home. This is very hard on me, not the weather or tornados, but 3 days of nothing but weather alerts, I cant take the freakin weather man drama, sorry. Soldiers know what I'm talking about. The wls of our house are 16 inches thick, concrete and brick, tornados have come within a hundred yards and we haven't lost a shingle, I cant go through life worrying or at a high state of alert, when there is nothing to do. The wifes been in the fraidy hole most of three days listening to weather alerts on her samsung galalxy note, I've been working on tractors, that part is wonderful

There were 5 deaths out in western OK, a Weather Channel storm chase car was rolled by high winds.

When the sun comes up, I will go outside and look around. My power goes out almost everyday, just enough to mess up the clocks. So I have to reset everything. PITA!!

I did though the area hit yesterday east of Broken Arrow, saw a few damaged buildings. I guess the rubberneckers were causing a lot of problems.

Glad to hear you guys are Okay.  You all sure have been taking it on the chin with these storms. I hope things calm down for you all so you can get back to normalcy.

Well I don't see any damage, but we did get close to 1" of rain. I had planned on hilling potatoes today.

Just south on here a couple of small towns received between 5"-7" of rain in 12 hours!!!


Here is why chasing tornados is a bad idea, the Weather Channel has storm chasers out that got caught in the storms. This car got thrown over 200'.

And these are professionals!!!
