What's the definition of "severe weather" anyway? For all we know on a 1 million year timeline this could be the calmest most serene weather this planet has ever seen.
People, this planet is so vast and complicated that only the most arrogant could pretend to understand it. A twitch and we see utter destruction (e.g. Japan, Joplin, and sooooooooo many others). Planet Earth goes on. To think that we have the slightest influence on the natural cycles on a planet, whose life span places the existence of our species as but a inconsequential moment, is beyond arrogance; it is the epitome of folly.
Today is looking interesting. I'm on the northern end of the high-risk area the SPC outlined earlier, and from a few of the chaser sites I read apparently today's setup looks very similar to the Andover tornado in '93 and the Hesston tornado in '91. Unfortunately for me, I'm working 911 this afternoon so if anything hits my county I'm going to be busier than a one-legged man in an ass kicking contest. We'll see what happens, though.
And the global warming folks are a bunch of jackasses. They got the EPA to put some rules into place to limit the spring burn in the Flint Hills because it "hurts the environment" or some BS like that.
Well....I'm on fire again. There were 3 separate fires burning within a few miles of me today. Hot dry winds blowing over 40 miles an hour all day kept them going. One crossed our Loop over into the town area, so they had to evacuate a lot of neighborhoods. Little white cinders were falling on my head this afternoon while I was standing outside my office, and our whole building smelled like smoke. Over 4000 acres burned in the one closest to me, and it is still not fully contained.
I don't guess I'll ever see rain again.
All these lines of thunderstorms pop up just north and east of me. :(
