when temp starts to climb, 800mg Ibuprofin is my first line of attack. If i don't start to sweat from fever breaking in about an hour, i throw another 1000mg Acetominophin at it. If that doesn't work, i should be in the hospital anyway.

Poor Cody !
I always try to avoid using medicine to get fever down, as long as my health allows. Fever is there for a reason and doing its job

Get well soon Cody !

Well, have a beer mate! Get your fluid levels back up where they should be. The secret is to drink until your pee is colorless. Great Aussie remedy.

That would just delay the inevitable BFFT

More importantly I just saw you've got some crazy weather heading your way, stay safe man and remember, unless it's to save a family member....................No heroics.

The good news: i sleep in the basement of my house. Houses with basements are very, very rare in this community (i only know of 1 other, although I am sure there are a few more). The ground is miserable to dig through, with all the caliche and limestone.

But if a twister comes, we still have the basement to take refuge in. Although the real risk is still hail.

One thing for sure: no matter what, we never curse the rain.

If we see hail much bigger than a frozen pea we all run out to look at it LOL Not so much a rain of death, more a source of amusement.

Hail here is just a pain the backside

And it very rarely lasts more than a few minutes, it's all very boring in the UK LOL

In June 1992 we had a macroburst in my small hometown of Coahoma, TX (home of Quail Dobbs, for all you rodeo fans, as well as the current home for the head coach from West Virginia University, strangely enough). Trees were uprooted, roofs ripped off of homes, and softball sized hail carried by 120mph winds. When they hit, it was like Nolan Ryan was throwing a fastball at you. The next door neighbors cow was beaten to death by them. We could hear the cow screaming as it was pelted by hailstones at first, but it only took a few moments before we didn't hear anymore from him. My dad was a roofer at that time, so we made a killing that summer.

A few years later, in May 1996 a very similar storm hit the town I was living in at that time. Softball sized hail, 100mph winds. What was supposed to be a "once in a lifetime" storm was repeated only 4 years later.

That is why when people talk about "Global Warming" and how it will make the weather more severe and unpredictable, i am fairly skeptical. The weather from where I am living is far more mild and predictable than it was in the 90's. Never since then have I seen a hail stone that could hit a car and sheer through the steel. Nor have I seen hail stones break through the roof and bounce into your living room. On those 2 nights, however, i saw both.

I just wanted to point out to you and Cody, that here in America when we say hail we mean it..





As for tornado's, my sister was actually in Oklahoma for the F5 that went through back in 1999.(she lived in Chickasaw at the time - a suburb of Oklahoma City) It was crazy stuff because it went right through her neighborhood, she and her kids were in the basement taking cover, and when it was over she went outside to look at the damage.

I say crazy because the houses on either side of my sisters were destroyed.. but my sisters house was in (relative) tact. What happened was the tornado had picked up off the ground long enough not to hurt her house.. and then when it touched back down it hit the house on the other side of hers, leaving hers unmolested with the exception of needing a few repairs.



It still amazes me.. her entire street was leveled, and her house the only one left standing..

i lived in Midwest City as a kid. A brand new subdivision at the time. Yards hadn't grown in yet. We moved away back in 79, but lived on Spitz Street. That subdivision was levelled in that same tornado.
