    Climate change means CA is going to have tornadoes to go with the earthquakes?

    Blake, don’t forget the droughts and wildfires.

    What did you want him to do. Panic?

    Hey, the man takes his job jar seriously (perhaps penance for a serious boo-boo) and doesn’t needlessly scare his kid.
    Send him a visa.

    I think he also was trained by S/Sgt James Uptagrafft.

    Observation – there are two vertical specks at the base of that cloud; do you ‘spose a couple wind turbines got really, really spun up?

    Now I’m no expert, mind you, but doesn’t that tornado look suspiciously similar to the photo that was making the rounds of all the local news broadcasts the previous day? Maybe the same storm from a different angle? Maybe a… well, we could call it a “photo-assist….”

    Due to budget considerations, california will have to make do with tornadoes for the foreseeable future. Apologies for the inconvenience.

    Sometimes cutting the grass, even during a tornado, beats staying inside and arguing with the wife.

    Joke follows…

    Husband comes home, turns on the TV and asks the wife to get him a beer before it starts.

    Drinks the beer and asks for another, because it’s almost time for it to start.

    Drinks that and asks for another beer, because it’s just about to start.

    Asks for a fourth beer, now the wife curses him out for being a lazy bum.

    Husband says “Now it’s started.”

    “The Disaster Response Team is NOT going to catch me with my lawn unmowed!”

    HeadMissy, when are you going down to Evergreen Kollege and slap some sense into those entitled snotflakes? I’ve been watching for this in the news.

    Evergreen Kollege was closed again today as police pursue leads into yet another threat that came in over the weekend.

    Pursuit of knowledge is not their thing at Evergreen.
