Oklahoma in May

Is not a pretty place to be.

Big tornado outbreak again--they think it might be another F5, even though it's being measured by the new Fujita Scale, which is much lower than the original when it comes to wind speed (they were still using the old one when the May 3rd outbreak occurred). Either way, it was bad. It hit at the worst possible moment--3:15 pm, when kids were being let out of school. And it hit two schools.

At least 51 dead so far, twenty of which are children.


I know my family is okay--it didn't hit any towns where I have family. But still.

*sigh* Tornado season, y'all. It's never pretty. But I know everyone down there will do exactly what they always do--just pick up the pieces, rebuild, and go on about their business. The resilience of Okies when it comes to tornadoes never ceases to amaze and inspire me, and I know they will be no different here. My heart goes out to everyone over there.
