Who is it that wants to make OZ a tourist attraction?

You know that Oz is not in Kansas, right?

The supercell south of Manhattan went tornadic at 757pm. Storm chasers are on it.

Its a big red and pink blob on radar that isn't moving but could maybe, if you squint just right at the pixels, be rotating.

TOB, you're right: I-70 = 79 mph to get to a storm. This storm is still radar indicated.

I, for one, would like to have a storm-free night of sleep...

Ditto.....Woke up to the power going out and sweating all night from lack of air moving in the house......

I certainly wouldn't trust a toilet to hold me in place during a tornado. I've been a licensed plumber since 1996 too, so that's my professional opinion. Go elsewhere if you're worried.

I'd be more worried if I were in Nebraska....

Sorry, TOB. Fifty lashes for threading. Feather boa???

Man, that storm out by Dwight is still warned after well over an hour. Take cover cousin Malcom in Dwight! BTW, the D is Dwight is pronounced.

No threat to the Lawrence area coming out of this cell. I doubt any more will develop tonight.....

Chasers to the cheap motels of east central Kansas. Supper at McDougies. Tomorrow is another day -400 miles away.
