#3 'It was a direct hit': Enormous tornado strikes Jefferson City in Missouri causing 'catastrophic damage' to the state capital and a 'mass casualty event' as authorities call in the National Guard

#4 The headline is wrong for Colorado. On May 19th, 1990 we got 7 inches dumped on us during our prom. There have been times it has snowed in June as well.

#5 One weekend in April we got 5 feet of snow in Evergreen CO. Light powdery stuff. The truck would drive fine (until the radiator packed) but we had to climb in and out of the windows as the doors wouldn't open.

#6 It has been interesting; another round today.

Agriculture has been affected badly by the stormy weather. Missouri only has 62 percent of its corn planted, compared to 95 percent a year ago through May 19, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture

Soybean planting is also delayed, with only 9 percent of fields planted versus 58 percent a year ago.

In Arkansas, only 31 percent of soybeans have been planted compared to 78 percent a year ago.


Wait until the wheat reports come in.

Yeah, and mountains. Eisenhower tunnel area had a whollop of a crash as I understand it.

"The ruby chard Reuben...

#11 Maybe I don't travel all the circles, but I found that when Nebraska got (and is still getting) wholloped there was hardly any coverage.

Theory is, is that by ignoring the devastation, there is little 'public sympathy' for the flyovers. Same with last year's Oklahoma fires, and with the 2017 fire outbreak where locally our fire burned 500,000 is less than 24 hours, and some 700,000 over the five days. But shit a helicopter lands in Oprah's back yards because there is mud in her driveway, its on everything to TMZ.

I heard that the Nebraska relief bill got tied into another Puerto Rico relief graff payment; that was during another round of bash Trump over PR.

#12 Successful water rescue, not bad for a ad hoc but that was extremely dangerous. Small diameter rope, poor footing.

Been reviewing water rescue videos, because out here this is a rare event/very dangerous. Dude I've been watching basically sets the stage with,

"Most people are poor swimmers at the best of times. They are cold, in wet clothing, and having the worst moment of their entire life. They may kill both of you, so plan according, and don't forget your gd flotation." I'm paraphrasing, but not by much.

Talking to comrade this morning, was mentioning this, he says he remembers his youth swimmer rescue training. "Come at them from behind, and grab around the chest. If they are fighting, knock them out; an unconscious patient is easier to control. If you can't do that, and if its a guy, punch them in the balls. Hard." I'm not sure how that pans with a female, though I have heard a hit to the woo hoo is also attention getting.
