Let’s (don’t) play twister

It’s spring-time in the Alley. I’m talking about “Tornado Alley” and every other place around it where twister outbreaks may occur. The National Weather Service made some dire warnings last week about the possibility of deadly tornadoes in the Midwest which may have saved unknown numbers of lives. Sure enough, some bad-ass twisters happened. But it doesn’t take a big explosion of storms to cause damage, nor does it take a tornado. Severe thunderstorms, lightning and, yes, flooding — the deadliest of all in the U.S. — wreak havoc in this great but meteorologically diverse nation of ours. It’s a great time of year, but don’t mess around with a tornado. They’re not much fun.
