Rough Weather in Wisconsin

What an awful mess. Oh, I feel for them, dang! Having been through our meesly little tornado here, I need a valium and three quaaludes everytime there’s a thunderstorm, less mind when the Alert Radio starts blaring. (As Bingley can tell you, there are nights around here when it stays on.) But it seems there’s always a bright spot somewhere in the midst of destruction…

Lenny Peaslee, executive chef at the Stoughton Country Club, said the twister tore the roof off as about 40 people took refuge in the basement.
We were … hiding behind the bar,” he said. “We had beer, anyway.

Why am I never with that person on days like this?

    Gosh, those poor folks.

  2. You don’t put ‘Wisconsin’ and ‘tornado’ together in your mind when you hear about these storms ~ you think Oklahoma, Indiana, Ohio ~ but I guess they take it in the chops a lot more often than one would think. Scares the beejeebus out of me.

    Oh heck yeah. Minnesota and Wisconsin get tons of tornados; it’s just since they suffer from a grievious lack of trailer parks the damage is usually not so bad. When the bride was out in Minnesota two weeks ago they had a tornado come through, so they all hid out in the friggin’ mall. Talk about an expensive storm for me

    Tornado Alley gets all the news, but tornados are common throughout the Midwest. Heck, we even get small ones in Washington and Idaho.
