Tornado season

This morning’s deadly surprise was yet another reminder that the 2010 Arkansas tornado season doesn’t end until December 31st, 2010.

I have to admit to having a certain keep-the-blinders-on-and-focus admiration for the guy who stuck to his guns and was milking his cow when the storm hit. Hate the price tag on that bucket of milk, though.

But we can rest easy for a little bit. The 2011 Arkansas tornado season doesn’t start until January 1st.

By the way, if anyone in the government wants to know how to spend some stimulus money, this passage of the news item contains some vital clues:

There was no warning for the residents of Cincinnati. The closest tornado sirens are about 12 miles away in Lincoln. People who live here said they can’t hear those sirens here. They said they knew it was over when it went silent.
