Fortunately, the tornado changed its mind and didn't hit Birmingham proper. There are reports that it hit some of the suburbs. Fortunately we are safe. Geez, I hate these things.

Not so bad here in LA (lower Alabama) at the moment, but that's subject to change... we have our moments.
Tornado watch till midnight..

Glad you missed the storm

Texas = tornado alley


we definitely have our share of storms. a couple weekends ago we had a tornado warning here...the storm was over Texas Stadium (where the Dallas Cowboy's play), and I'm kind of northeast of there. with the tornado moving southwest to northeast, I even hid in the bathtub for a little while unfortunately around here in Texas we don't have any basements or underground storm shelters. Kinda silly I think...if I ever move into a house, I'm definitely putting one in, or one of those reinforced closets. Right now I'm on the 2nd floor of an apartment building. Luckily a tornado hasn't come close otherwise I'd have no place to hide except the bathroom

I would think so too....but as I remember I think it has something to do with the soil down here either being too hard, or the hot dry summers drying out the soil or something as to the reason why they don't have basements or storm shelters here...I'm really not sure why they don't have them.
