No news from Sara?
I hope its because of lack of power and not something horrible. The news is so full of the damage and deaths.
Which leads to the question of why? Were there not sirens and shelters?
How have so many died? These kinds of fatalities are usually reserved for the unexpected or night time events.
As we know from Sarra's posts this storm was forecast way in advance.
I hope I'm not sounding heartless, just slightly confused.

Gotta love the Leatherman.



Do not forget a portable CD-player and a Slayer, Reign in Blood CD in the BOB

Should be impossible to live without that after the apocalypse

The OP must be okay. They last visited today, 3 March 2012 which means they were able to get here. I take it that means they are okay.

good on you Inspector TZ.


finding out when she last logged in. Quite worrying still.

I don't think the OP is an idiot for not being prepared. Complacent perhaps? but complacency does not equate to idiocracy.

gee wizz I used to go on holiday and didn't even check to see if I had a spare tyre. LOL I just never thought of it.

Thank you! All I could picture was somebody holding a bug-out bag as their child flew away. I'm glad you're okay.

I'm hoping that it turns out this well with my missing BFF and her hubby.

Don't forget your children in those BOB's

As a Brit, I wonder why US tornadoes kill people every year?
I mean, isn't there some kind of early warning system in place?
When one is seen approaching a town, can't a lookout crank up a siren to warn everybody to get into their cellars?
Or are tornadoes impossible to guard against?

There are many reasons, not all houses have basements, tornadoes can be a major force of nature destroying houses as if they are made of balsa wood so sometimes even going into basement won't protect your, and while there are early warning systems sometimes the expected weather signs those monitoring for severe weather expect to see indicating an emergency just aren't there until it;ls too late.

In 1990 an F5 tornado ripped through Plainfield, Chest Hill and Joliet Illinois, it formed so fast the that that the sirens went off after it's initial hit, once it hit the ground it tore a swath through all 3 towns, and finally lost steam after it destroyed the majority of my neighborhood. 26 people were killed. Anyway that's my experience with them


They are just a major force of nature

Sarra i'm glad to see you back, it's good to know you made it through

Okay, so it seems the only surefire way to survive tornadoes is to go live in a state that doesn't have them.
PS- another thing about tornadoes--do they come at night as well as day?
