That green sky is bad news.

How'd you know that? You originally from the Plains states? I used to tell easterners about the green sky, and they'd laugh, until they saw it!

There is a giant hand in that cloud and it’s wearing a ring on the middle finger. Not sure what that means but people in Wichita should hunker down.

Having lived in Iowa, I know what green skies mean: SHELTER QUICKLY! Hope your daughter is okay, dirtboy!

Here in Colorado, green like that has always been bad.

I noted that as well. I think it must be the hand of God. With some good photo enhancement technology it might be possible to determine whether He prefers an Android or iOS device.

Holy Cow!

I am sitting in Topeka right now, where it is pefectly calm and the flag shows no wind.

In a few hours (incidentally when the high school graduation is set to begin), we are going to be in a heap of trouble.

I hope it wasn’t too bad in Wichita.

OKC area — tornado funnel reforming, not on ground.

Helo reporter says there is a lot of auto traffic out.

I saw greenish clouds like that when I was in the Navy in Florida during a tornado warning, and it made me as nervous as a long tailed cat in a room full of rocking chairs.

It’s not just green. I’ve seen it several times, and it’s not like any other cloud. Roiling, boiling, and it looks like an old bruise. Green, but with slight yellowish/purple gray tints.

That sounds ridiulous. You really do have to see it. Just nasty, eerie, and very frightening.
