Dee Nash (Red Dirt Ramblings) Explains Tornadoes

Whenever there is a big tornado in Oklahoma, Okies get phone calls and text messages and emails and tweets asking us about life in tornado alley. On her blog "Red Dirt Ramblings," Dee Nash has done a lovely job of explaining what it is like to live with the possibilities of tornadoes. It is one of those, "Dang, I wish I had written that" reads and I suggest you send the link to your loved ones outside Oklahoma. I especially like the part about weather radios, storm chasers, meteorologists and the practice of switching back and forth (for those of us in Central Oklahoma) between our commercial TV channels - KFOR, KWTV and KOCO!   Check it out at

  1. Jean, I just saw this, and I wanted to say thank you for the link love. I've lived in Oklahoma all my life, and I wouldn't want to call any other place home. Thanks again.~~Dee

  2. You deserved it; this was a wonderful post! I am a big fan of your blog.
