In Light of the RARE Tornado Events Long Island/Rhode Island another entry about tornadoes

Our family lived in a town they told me was in a valley. For this reason, they said,we would NEVER get a tornado. Keep in mind that our dad told us if there ever were a tornado we should open the windows to the house. Dad was a WWII vet so you can surmise he came from a different generation where these old wives tales-as they were called-were the urban legends of their day.

Neither of the statements are based on reality-or science. A hill will not stop a tornado and the best thing to do is just stay away from the windows during a storm and definitely during a tornado.

Fact: Opening windows allows damaging winds to enter the structure. Leave the windows alone.

The time you would waste doing it could be the time you need to get to your safe space.

Famous last words are those words,”we would never get a tornado here because…”.Name the town or city you have heard those words.Yes, there are areas of the United States where it’s more likely or less likely to occur. We’re all aware of Tornado Alley/ Dixie Alley and the storms/tornadoes of the midwest. A tornado there is not a shock. What would be amazing is if they had a whole year when they didn’t have any tornadoes at all.It’s because they quite often have the right conditions for tornadic activity. It’s like Stevie Ray Vaughn singing Texas Flood. Blame it on the weather you get in certain locations. It’s why the birds fly south for the winter and seniors head for Florida.

FACT: A tornado can occur anywhere in the United States given the right conditions.

Bottom line: have a plan, have a safe space and become weather aware.

The best safe space is a basement. It’s underground. Second choice would be bathroom or closet with as many walls as possible between you and the tornadic activity and no windows. A mattress is good cover as well as helmets if you have any. There are items i have handy in our home. FLASHLIGHTS with good batteries. We keep a couple on the main floor and one in the basement. If you have a tornado or severe storms in your area you know you’re likely to have a power outage and with a tornado it could be awhile before power is restored.We also have a first aid kit in the basement but that might be a good idea tornado or not. One thing that’s a must-if you don’t have a weather radio have a way to get alerts on your cell phone at least.Have some way to get an alert. We bought a budget weather radio made by Midland and it does the job. Become weather aware. i check the SPC reports daily during those months that are favorable for severe conditions. You kind of know when the atmosphere is a little funky too,although i’ve seen days that started out clear as a bell,the sun is shining and people are caught totally offguard. Those off guard events are a darmed good reason to check the SPC reports during those months or even when there are some weather changes coming. i’ve noticed that sometimes between seasons the conditions can be favorable because of a mixture of warmer air in some areas and colder air moving in from others or vice versa.You’re into November and you think to yourself-it’s not possible now.Again,given the right conditions a tornado can come up.The main thing that about tornado formation is the RIGHT CONDITIONS.

A car or mobile home is a terrible place to be during a tornado. In fact i would make it a point NOT to be if there’s any chance the conditions are favorable for tornadoes in your area. You definitely have to plan ahead for a safe space and it may be allowing yourself time to get to a designated place like a friends home, shelter in your area or a stronger building. i would get there during a tornado WATCH which means conditions are favorable because once the WARNING is issued you’re not likely to have time.When the warning is issued you should be getting into your safe space; not driving to it.

I would make it a point not to be in a vehicle when severe weather is in your forecast. If your local forecast is saying there’s a chance for severe storms they are going to give you an approximate time-schedule any travel you have to do BEFORE that time.

The SPC reports. Check out Convective Outlooks.

To Sum Up: Don’t be scared, be prepared. You don’t want to be in a panic,but you don’t want to be complacent either.

American Citizens In Afghanistan Kicked Out Of Safe Houses Due To US Government Refusal To Cooperate | The Daily Caller

Hundreds of Afghans, including U.S. Citizens, have been forced to leave safe houses after a volunteer group said they had failed to successfully arrange for a way out of Afghanistan with the U.S. government, the Wall Street Journal (WSJ) reported Friday. Group leaders said that they had access to three flights ready to ship off, however, the U.S. government had not approved passenger manifests or clear departures. Therefore, while they had planes ready to evacuate people, there had been no locations cleared to land the aircrafts, according to the WSJ. Task Force Argo, one of the largest volunteer groups consisting of current and former U.S. government officials, veterans, as well as other individuals chartering evacuation flights out of Afghanistan, also told those placed in safe houses that they had run out of money to support them, reported the outlet.

The Washington Post Begins Scrubbing and Deleting Prior Articles Using the Steele Dossier to Promote Trump-Russia Narrative – The Last Refuge

John Durham is providing evidence {Go Deep} showing how the “Trump-Russia” collusion story was created by Hillary Clinton and Democrat operatives like Dan Jones, Charles Dolan, Glenn Simpson and contracted operatives within Fusion-GPS; who then laundered their fake stories to Christopher Steele and his source Igor Danchenko for distribution to the FBI; and who then leaked the information to awaiting allies in the media.  Those same media recipients are now scrubbing their participation:

Had My Fill of This @POTUS What Say You?

It must be fairly obvious by now that i’m not a journalist. I read plenty of news but i have no sources.There is no team here-just me.

I avoid conspiracy theories like the plague and TRY as best as possible to press only the stories that are accurate.If you read it here it is verifiable.

i do commentary. That’s it.

As of tonight even if i wasn’t a Trump supporter i would say this guy better be one term and we have to push back to survive it.

Trump gave us the vaccines but never ordered a mandate. He recommended it but never forced anyone to comply. Remember Biden and Harris refused it when Trump was still President. Now Joe thinks he can force people to get it.

Trump gave us energy independence and the lowest fuel costs we had seen in years. We were exporting oil. Hard to imagine.

Biden comes in and so devastates our energy sector that he’s begging OPEC to open the supply of oil.Here we go again.Gas prices are skyrocketing and JOE CAUSED IT. Now he says that makes a case for green energy.No it doesn’t Joe.You did this. Now you think you can force the green new deal on us. You say the rising gas prices make the case for green energy. WRONG. It makes the case you shouldn’t be in the oval office.

You ppl claimed Trump was a tyrant.Who’s got the FBI kicking down doors, calling parents domestic terrorists and expect ppl to snitch them out for protesting school boards. Who’s ignoring the courts?

You’ve got our Dept of Education pushing indoctrination in our schools where students are barely able to do basic courses like math, reading and science.

You ppl said Trump would get us into a war.You’re the one who abandoned our people in Afghanistan; cut and run.Now all you have to say for it, it is time to turn the page.No Joe-our ppl are still over there.

Our border is gone. You’re sneaking illegals into our country in the dead of night.

The FBI is acting more like the KGB.

Our PresidentTrump was banned from social media.What is this, Communist China? By the looks of the bare shelves in our stores starting to look that way.

You’re going to pay your new voters up to $450,000 because their children were allegedly separated from their families.They’re the ones who chose to break our laws.How about our soldiers being separated from their families? They were never promised $450,000.

Defund the police? Crime is skyrocketing like the gas prices and inflation.Now the mob is threatening the new mayor of NYC for trying to protect his citizens. This is what happens when you let Antifa/BLM run amok calling them ‘peaceful protestors’,fail to support law and order, then trash law enforcement.

i could go on but i think this is enough to make the case that you shouldn’t be in the oval office.Your legacy will be worst president in history.

Everything you accused Trump of doing is what you are actually doing. How about all those ppl associated with Trump or supported him who are now political prisoners? Locked up because they oppose you.You going to have all of us locked up,kick down our doors, confiscate our phones? How does it feel to be the President of a banana republic?

Did you bother to ask the American people if they wanted the Green Deal? Nope. Like everything else you do you just tell us to suck it up and like it. Sorry Joe.No can do.
