If I may add my 2 cents... don't use that weather.com info. It'* not always up to date. Use NOAA instead. NOAA receives info straight from the field. Does the weather channel have an 800 # that Skywarn personnel such as I can call in to report hail, or adverse weather? Nope. Do they have a budget that comes straight from the government or do they have to rely on consumers through commercials? I think I would rather go through NOAA.

Let'* compare...
NOAA Loop http://radar.weather.gov/radar.php?r...01111&loop=yes

Weather.com Loop
http://www.weather.com/weather/map/5...animated&day=1

NOAA was 3 minutes ahead of Weather.com. That'* 3 minutes you get to wager with your life.

That'* sunny. Alarms go off when I go to Taco Bell, too..

I'm glad we're finally getting some rain, except now I have nowhere dry to smoke at home. We didn't get any severe weather, just tons of rain and some flooded roads.

I don't like tornado'*!!! I grew up in Chicago and had one come right down our street destroying many homes but it spared our house. Ever since then I get nervous when the weather starts getting weird. About 6 years ago I was in my toyota pickup when straight line winds hit Starkville, MS and did a lot of damage. I had a hard time trying to manuever around flying debris to get to safety.
