    If the sirens went off in Wichita last night, I slept right through them.

    Yup, I was through there just a little over a month ago. I'm just over 100 miles from Greensburg. So far, this spring we've been getting our asses kicked by all of the tornadoes and we're expecting more tonight.

    I'm alive and kicking.

    The tornado missed my town but don't know by how much. We were right in the middle of the path of the twister from where it touched down at Greensburg.

    I was up watching tv and texting back and forth with a few people. Was watching the rain fill up the streets and flooding them, too. Finally the storm passed and I was in bed a little after 3.

    At the time of this reply, there's been 9 dead so far in Greensburg. They expect the toll to climb as many people are still trapped in their basements from the house and debris on them.

    Last night was a little interesting to say the least. All part of normal, typical living in Tornado Alley.

    There were reports of a tornado about an hour east of me, but I don't think there was much damage.

    We're fortunate over here not to get the extremes of weather and 'nature' you people get, although in the last few years there have been more and more 'mini twisters' appearing and we even had an earthquake last week!
    It must be a pretty helpless feeling being in the path of something that destructive.

    i was up in Wichita last night and saw the destruction on the news, it was pretty crazy, the path of destruction was like 3-4 blocks wide, 9 dead and 80 something in the hospital
