    Re: Crazy $hit! Tornados in Spokane Wa.

    It's probably my fault. I was joking today at work about tornados earlier... then I get in the Suburban to head home after looking at this very black and ominous cloud to the west, and they say on the radio that a tornado had just been reported. I had to run back in and tell them.

    It was fun driving home, wipers on full with constant flashing overhead from lightning. I was just waiting for another funnel cloud.

    We had one blow through downtown Salt Lake a few years ago and That never happens. We live in a valley for hell's sake /forums/images/graemlins/yikes.gif /forums/images/graemlins/yikes.gif /forums/images/graemlins/yikes.gif

    I guess it can happen anywhere /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    It's crazy!! We just got a hail warning for 1/2 or greater and lightning w/in 5 miles, and a wind warning for up 49 knots. If there is lightening w/in 5 we shut down fuel operations for obvious safety reasons. Hey allan tell some more jokes that was cool today.

    Hey! We have had tornadoes up here in Ontario. Sometimes with heavy damage. Scary stuff.
    As a ham radio operator I have been trained by Canwarn (You may know it as Skywarn in the U.S.A..) To spot and report severe weather. Get in touch with your local Amateur radio club they may allow you to sit in on the next training session.

    Ok, what do you want? More tornados? I'm trying to think of something different that one of these storms hasn't already done yet...

    Weather like this tempts me to grab the video camera and start driving to see some action. Maybe some inner part of me thinks I'm a storm chaser. Let me know if you spot another twister... I'll be on my way. /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif

    A tornado and a funnel cloud just came through the west side of Spokane. We are talking Wa state no where near a tornado alley. This is crazy. These people were freakin out. Hail and rain were flooding all the streets. Our wheel chocks for our refuelers all washed away. What a crazy day. Who da thunk it!!!

    Re: Crazy $hit! Tornados in Spokane Wa.

    If ya want to post about tornadoes in Spokane around these parts, then pony up the $$$$ to become a paying so you can post it in the appropriate forum. Otherwise, don't muck up the Garage forum with this crap cause we the members who really care about this site don't like seeing a tech forum mucked up by some cheapskate. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    if you want tornadoa then come here, we had our third warnign this week last night, town sirens sounding off at 11:30PM and everything, and touchdowns all around us and last year we had the most tornados in this county than any others in this state, you get used to it, last year i was outside taking pics of the funnel clouds going directly over the top of us and at the same time a tornado was ripping up the north end of the town, literally,.


    oh well.

    here we go again, heh
    i expect more tonight,
