1. Rejoice Kansas. Your neighbor to the north has winter storm warnings today.
We're expecting an ice storm. As one who is thoroughly familiar with tornadoes - they can't get you all - ice does, and I'm sick of the cold. I'd rather roll the dice on some twisters at the moment. Then again, that's probably just the cabin fever talking.

8. Snow in the Seattle area
1 - 5 inches. One of the reasons I moved up here is because this area doesn't get snow, except now it does. We have no infrastructure in place for snow but we've had a half dozen snowstorms each winter for the last three years.

21. daughter is at work at Micky D's I called her...they are still working
said even if a tornado was hovering above their store, they would still be working because of the boss they have



I figured they would be in the walk in


they might before it is all over

it is not really in our city yet, just the county

29. A local and a girl from Oklahoma had to explain to me
Edited on Sat Mar-07-09 08:45 PM by AllentownJake
why the sky was turning green, and no we weren't under attack.

We all lived in apartments we were hiding in our bathtubs.
