I don't love what we are in a watch for. We are expected to get a major thunderstorm which should start around 2 and the wind is picking up and we are in for a tornado watch. I know we won't get one because MI doesn't get those here. Well when I was 5 we did get one but none since then that I know of. Well anyway I would love to get pics of lightning. It was storming last night and I slept with the window open and slept sooooo goood last night. Anyways, how is your day going?

Our weather is the exact same here in MO.  I didn't want to send my son to school because he had to sit in the bathroom for a tornado warning one time and it freaked him out.  I'm afraid he will have to do it again today.  It's gonna get bad later :/

I sleep good when it's storming too, unless the thunder is too close/loud.  I love the sound of the rain though.

Yeah thats a few hours away where I live theres alot of fields and stuff like that so occassionally we get a tornado they rarely ever touch down though but I can remember atleast 2 in the last 10 years only the one actually touched down though there may have been more. Maybe you just didnt hear about it because there wasnt alot of damage it may have only made local news. Idk its kind of cool to see though but scary at the same time. We might move to tennessee in a few years and they get alot of tornados kind of scary considering they dont have basements for the most part around there.

We had a bunch of tornados here last night. We were in tornado watch, warning , thunderstorm warning, and  flood watch all day and night. It was really nerve racking. We are still under watches today. We live in Owasso, OK.

scary. I used to live in Ok city and I was only there for 6 mths and they had a tornado once while I was there (well a few of them right on top of each other) luckily it didn't hit my area, a few blocks away. I felt bad for the people losing their homes

yeah I usually don't watch the news so that might be why if they even broadcasted it in my area. I would not want to move where they are a for sure thing though. I did live in OK City though and that was not fun.
