Oh...I don't know Eddie but here's some humor from our weather-geek friends:

Everybody knows about the Fujita Scale which measures the power of tornados. But nobody really knows what all those types of twisters do to COWS. So here is the MOOJITA Scale...

M0 Tornado - Cows in an open field are spun around parallel to the wind flow and become mildly annoyed.
M1 Tornado - Cows are tipped over and can't get up.
M2 Tornado - Cows begin rolling with the wind.
M3 Tornado - Cows tumble and bounce.
M4 Tornado - Cows are AIRBORN.
M5 Tornado - S T E A K ! ! !

Whoa!

That so sounds like my mother!

"It's all a game, boys, until someone loses an eye!"


Storms are cool. Having grown up in tornado alley, everyone would come outside to watch them as they rolled on in. A concept that is difficult for my wife to understand. She grew up in southern CA, had no prior experience with tornadoes. She is, you might say, a little shocked by the seemingly lack of concern for all of them red cells moving across the atate. As everyone that is use to it, goes on about their business.

She has learned the significance of a wall cloud. LOL

The storm missed us, and it was a good thing too. The high temperature was only 89 yesterday, but the dewpoint was 87. That's miserable tornado-like weather. I prefer the 104 that I felt in Yellowstone last week.

Andy, I'm glad the storm didn't hit you. They are fascinating buggers though aren't they?! I wanted to go on a storm chasing vacation in April for my birthday, but not my b/f, my daughter nor a single one of my friends would have any part of it. Truth be told, I think they look at me a little funny now - oh well.
