    Possible tornado event today..?

    Although I do follow a lot of weather stuff I am not as in tune to the buzz as some others around here are. Anyway, just saw on twitter that Reed Timmer of Discovery's Stormchasers just tweeted that if he didn't have a Discovery event to do in OK he would be up here in Iowa in a heartbeat. Says he is thinking a "tornado festival".

    Twitter


    Yeah TOAST!!!

    Reed has a twitter account? I may have to jump on that.

    I do see a 10% chance of Tornados today from the national weather service.

    Good times on Hawkeyenation.com after the 2010 Wisconsin Game!

    I think he said they start in April on twitter but maybe he was talking about something else.

    Quote of the day!!

    On the other hand. I love Reed Timmer. Storm Chasers is one of my favorite shows on TV. My daughter who is 5 loves to watch it with me. She has a couple tornado books and she tells everybody that she wants to be a storm chaser when she grows up.

    Bring on the Cyclones, oh wait, I mean tornadoes.

    Re: Possible tornado event today..?

    I purposely parked my car in a parking garage today On campus I will leave it there over night in case of hail I would rather pay 20 bucks to park overnight than a 1000 dollar deductible on insurance.

    I have anxiety lol

    Don't worry, I watch Storm Chasers-- and my Dodge Stratus is the mid-size car version of the Dominator.
