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.
