    "...possible tornado..."

    Possible tornado? Sheesh, what else could it have been? I'm waiting for "the alleged tornado..."

    Damaging straight-line winds can cause damage levels similar to tornadoes.

    there are numerous things that can cause destruction and still look like a tornado. powerful down bursts are very destructive.

    i would say spring is starting to stake its claim. today it is 66 and we have already been seeing insects. gonna be a bad year for bugs.

    It's called a NOAA weather radio they give you a good deal of advanced warning of approaching storms. However, they aren't much good for approaching earthquakes.:)

    When I lived in Arkansas I saw two tornadoes, they are indeed really loud. Now in Colorado all I have to worry about is tourists, and the occasional avalanche.

    How bad are the avalanches of tourists? Do they fall over each other and end up burying a hapless Coloradan?

    Well not quite. it only takes a few minutes to determine the difference if the damage was from a tornado or straight line winds.

    Last week we had one day at 55 degrees followed by a much cooler day followed by 6” of snow. Last night we had a genuine thunder storm with occasional gusts of wind. Today it is annoyingly bright out and still occasionally windy.

    I've has to set my mountain bike up every time I let the dogs out today.

    I got the bike out of the shed that last 55 degree day. I spent most of that day oiling it and putting air in the tires. I even rode it for an hour or so.
