Thunder and lightning like crazy here in Southwest Omaha. It’s bad just south of us.

I’m using Opera v11.62 and it won’t let me view it. Darnit. I’ll switch over to Firefox and see if that works.

That link hung up Firefox. I had to force quit. Maybe too many people are accessing.

Romney supported violent storms in 1971. I have the video around here somewhere . . .

I got it loud and clear. The super-cell has split in two and another one has formed. All kinds of weather coming to Woodward and surrounding environs. Batten down the hatches (and I don’t mean Orrin)!

Weather Channel is giving TOR-CON indexes up around 8 and 9 for some areas. That usually means deadly tornados are coming.

I think the story was that Romney put Toto on his car in a campaign swing through the Midwest in support of more turbulent weather.

Better unplug electric things if it’s coming your way. That lightening can do real damage to electronics!

I heard that, too...which of course makes the deed doubly heinous.

Funny, I thought it was Bush’s fault...in all seriousness, it was the Dims (under Bill Clinton) who tried to close the Storm Prediction Center in Norman, Oklahoma, which is responsible for forecasting severe weather outbreaks like the one in progress. It was a Republican by the name of J.C. Watts who saved the center—and countless lives—by keeping the SPC in operation. Remember that the next time you hear a Democrat talk about Republicans trying to “cut” NOAA.

“Better unplug electric things if it’s coming your way. That lightening can do real damage to electronics!”

I’m taking your advice. I have my wife up on the roof trying to dismantle the antenna but wind, rain, and hail are making it difficult. Luckily with all the lightning, she doesn’t need the flashlight she dropped.

We are ready. SW MO has had its share of the monster storms..I am praying it misses us. After what happened to Joplin we had an in ground shelter built. My next door neighbor moved 3 miles from me and was killed in the last tornado in Cassville, MO. It was a fluke that the storm went through that particular area...Branson was hit too but thank God noone died

That's dangerous. She could slip and grab onto the antenna and bend it so badly that you lose any reception.

Stay safe, k. Best to over-prepare than under-prepare. Prayers for you/your family.

Storms hitting here now; starting to disconnect electronics to protect from lightening strikes.

G’night all!

No, he didn’t, he just supported taxpayer-funded abortion, expensive socialized medicine, homosexual marriage, raising taxes and fees including fees on gun owners enormously, etc. Romney was much more successful at implementing a liberal agenda in his jurisdiction than Obama has been.
