*Tornadoes: They're Everywhere! They're Everywhere!

Not a good weekend to be in Iowa. Worse for some * than others.

I think I was as close to a tornado as I ever have been in my life. Hard to guesstimate distance when you're driving 90 miles an hour in the other direction, though.

On a less dangerous note, saw Shrek 2 and highly recommend it. :-)

* Anyone around here who wants to help with cleanup Sunday at Bradgate, they can use more volunteers. Park on either the east or west side of town and they'll shuttle you in. Free lunch. Anyone else can donate to the Red Cross.

Lol...tornadoes. Why do hurricanes have names...but tornadoes don't. Jen clearly proved the point. You don't have to say "Tornadoe timmys comming!" for someone to realize...they need to fuckin move!

You can't name tornadoes, because they're too many of them during a year.

I still don't see why anyone would head towards a tornado. The last F5 we had here in Louisville was 30 years ago and the thing did massive damage. At a mile wide, you would see me hauling ass the other way pronto.

I'm glad your OK, Jen. Drive faster next time, though :)

The news is saying there are a lot more tornadoes coming this week. Watch out high winds, flying windows and hags on bicycles.
