That's Not What We Want To See...

I was reading a nice article tonight about the efforts of a radio station in Joplin that I've been listening to for updates as they have been doing 24/7 broadcasting about relief and recovery efforts when the little yellow / black "Breaking News" box popped up.

"Breaking News: Spotters confirm a tornado on the ground moving toward Joplin, Missouri, where a twister on Sunday killed 124 people."

That's definitely not a good thing.  Thankfully the worst part of the storm missed Joplin (as of this 10:30 PM writing).  The sirens sounded again in Joplin due to wind speeds in excess of 75 miles per hour, raising concerns that existing debris could be blown around.

I think we're all ready for Mother Nature to take a break.
