Actually, I sleep best when the sky is alive. Hopefully, ours will be a soothing (if not non-) event.

Would love some F4 or F5 action in these parts. Been too long since we got one. COME ON BABY!

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

Just ran an errand across town. There was an eerie darkness in the middle of the western sky.

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.

"TOB, you're right: I-70 = 79 mph to get to a storm. " River

Nine miles over. /fist bump.

"I'm scared. I live in a 2nd floor apartment, so I guess the only thing I can do it tie my self to my toilet with a rope and pray that I can hold on to my two cats. "

Don't be scared. Be aware and prepared. And do not tie yourself to a toilet. You'll be the most tattered and battered body the search and rescure crew will see.

I just got this weird urge to head for the Rockies. It's probably nothing.

Every 20 years sounds like a ghostly possibility. Thank goodness K-mart is gone.

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

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

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

I was reading earlier this afternoon that the chasers were lined up between Topeka and Salina. I was befuddled. The professionals had this all north of 36. Maybe 70 is just an easy jumping off point when there was some uncertainity.
