may you and I meet under better circumstances next time.
You from Westboro?
Thank you for saying that.
Please...not the time for politics.
No! Prayers for kiddos and the families! Horrible, just horrible.
So God supports abortion because he thinks children dying is “righteous judgement” for America? Aborted kids are just collateral damage? That’s what it sounds like you saying.
From CBS Houston.
I think I would have evacuated the area entirely if this was what was in the forecast for a second day....
I get what you are saying but on the face of this tragedy, could you just this once give the poster a pass....chalk it up to grief???
well i would hope schools were built with some reinforced areas especially in tornado alley
about all i know about tornadoes is my sister told me she was driving into town one day and all these cars were pulling over and people were headed indoors. she was new to the area and didn’t understand then she looked out her side window and a tornado was coming at her not too far away. she said she peed her pants literally and headed for the nearest building she had seen other people headed for.
Funny you should mention that...Bill Clinton tried to shut down the NWS Storm Prediction Center, based in Norman, OK, in an effort to “save money.” The SPC issues tornado watches for the nation and the National Severe Storms Laboratory (NSSL) conducts research into severe weather. Both organizations were saved from closing by a Congressman named J.C. Watts.
Maybe he should get a job at the IRS. I hear they got agreat system over there.
It was far nicer then what I wanted to say.
Unbelievable the stuff thats coming out in these threads.
This is depressing news.
So God killed those children today because He’s angry that people in this country don’t pray enough and have sinful lifestyles? Great outlook. As someone prior to me asked- are you a WBC member?
Yes. I understand. I heard they only had a few minutes warning.
From what I hear on the local news in that city several of those kids drowned in the basement of the school.
Thanks for the link. I was watching a live feed until it got cut off. This thing was nearly two miles wide and stayed on the ground for an entire hour. Unbelievable.
You would have to evacuate the state.
I grew up in tornado country, had them every year. You pretty much accept them and pay attention in the summer. Storms this strong are rare, thankfully.
Prayers sent to all affected by this terrible storm!
Second it, PRAYERS!
Tornado likelihood strung out from Texas to Michigan. Just evacuate. OK.
This has to be a Cat 5 twister.
There are some sick puppies out there.
No, I’m saying you and I could be collateral damage for the judgement that is coming to America because of the blood shed here. To be blunt, I’m afraid of getting caught in the crossfire. Darn. I wish I hadn’t started this.
Thank-you and your welcome at the same time.
My first experience with that about 4 yrs ago in Pryor OK visiting my aunt. On the way intro town there is a sign....TURN AROUND DON’T DROWN.....I said huh? Had to ask WTH? Cousin said it is a flash flood area or the creek runs over there or something like that, anyway water real fast and they have had people try to drive through it and drown. Saw some pretty funny road signs in that area.
We’d have to evacuate to Canada...
THAT is the first thing I thought of...Haven’t we been hearing about this for the last day or so?
I’ll go back to shutting up now with my Monday Am quarterbacking. I don’t live there so I don’t understand.
My God, those poor parents.
You folks in tornado country have all my prayers. What a frightening situation, I’m not sure I can even imagine. I’ve had violent t-storms hit when I was working outside in New Mexico, but the worry was mostly lightning, not tornadoes.
Find some online documentation on that, we’ll need it.
Really stupid comment.
Idaho doesn’t have tornadoes.
B4Ranch is a great freeper....I think all she means is that we collectively should be less sinful and more prayerful...if only to strengthen ourselves spiritually for such horrible events...
Just responding to a person’s tagline. Actually, I didn’t even realize it was this thread. No problem...
The response was not intended to be tied in to this incident. It’s unfortunate that it probably looked like it.
O please...give it a rest with your “messages from God”...that’s all these families need to hear..this was God’s will.
Up to 100 horses were killed on one farm in Moore,
Thanks for the mention.
The she should say that! What she said is disgusting.
When I lived in Canada I learned that central Alberta is one of the worst areas of North America for tornadoes. One spring around this time of year a tornado swept through a campground (it was vacant, fortunately) and tossed a bunch of vacation trailers into Pine Lake.
Now..news conference from the Governor. Live feed Fox.
i totally agree. this is one of the worst places for tornados.
ha.. you said it so much more clearly than I did.
So you are from Westboro. Disgusting
Now..news conference from the Governor. Live feed Fox.
I was praying earlier today to keep the people in that area of the country safe, this is terrible and there are more unsafe days to come.
