Tornado Watch

Well, we are haiving some nice weather. There is a tornado watch, there was a warning where my folks live, no funnel clouds. Just packed up my purse (included my tax return checks so If my house blows down I will have some cash), put on comfortable clothes. I don't have a flash light.

Get a flashlight! If anything it's good to have around the house -- even as a weapon in self defense if you get a hefty one.

Also, go to the store and get three or four bottles of water (2 liters) and some canned food (makes sure you have a can opener) that will hold you over in case you lose power.

I've been reading about you guys, sounds like Mother Nature is giving you guys a real run up there. Stay safe.

Thanks NYC. I am glued to the tv. I have water, will buy a flashlight this week. I just want to stay close to home in case I have to go to the basement. Wild ass weather....

I talked with my mom and dad, and dad said that a tornado touched down north of where he lives (he lives about 50 miles north of me), and another cell is headed towards their cabin.

Tornado-like conditions.

One touched down in Western Dodge County.

Tornado siren is going off in my county.

I am headed for the basement, bitchez. Love you all.

We're having the same weather as you Klynne I do not do well in tornado conditions; my biggest worry is rounding up all the animals..and we do NOT have a basement. I HATE OHIO

I have this picture of you doing this and yelling at the cats that run out, "OK FINE! If you want to be picked up by a twister and land furless at some cat haters house (Dinz's) where they'll never love you like I have, then FINE!"

I love how they advise you to throw your cats in pillow cases in an emergency
