I have a strange feelings today. This extra day is a bit confusing, I'd say.
First, thank God, we survived the stormy night. All that severe weather coming our way was getting on our nerves starting late evening and into the night, especially when Storm Prediction Center issued a tornado watch.
My men went to sleep but I couldn't. I was on a watch in case the siren went on: I was ready to wake them up and drive to a tornado shelter. I had my computer on and was checking the moving storm, especially those tornado forming hooks, on three websites about every five minutes.
All of the sudden, about one hour before that storm front would be here, the dangerous cell split into two and went north and south of Fort Smith.
The tornado season in this parts has officially began. Personally, I don't understand how people live here: every year tornadoes take so many human lives, destroy and ruin many others. It seams that I am missing something... Do people get use to it?
Today all my thoughts go out to the families who were hit by the last night tornadoes.
How was your Leap Day?
Until next time,
