I heard Tornado sirens go off ... so I went out to stock up on booze. Smoking/Drinking now, seemed like an appropriate response.

Also, people in Iowa forget how to drive when it rains... seriously how hard is it to stay in ONE FREAKING LANE???

Shit got pretty serious where I'm at... Tornado was heading from SW of Wichita straight for us for 45 minutes, about 2 miles out, it started hailing, electricity went out, than it disappeared... than picked back up NE of us. Apparently once it got to Wichita area, 2 more Tornados decided to join in. We'll be driving around tomorrow morning to see the damage. From the sound of it, pretty serious damage. Hope no one got seriously hurt...

Complete disappointment up here. Went out to shoot some lightning and it was over before we got out the door. Just windy now.
