Eight warnings in the past hour.

Eight.

Eight screetching, a-little-SportsCenter-before-work-killing, full-screen warnings of Apocalypse telling me what I had already inferred from watching the forecast and checking the Doppler radar (green means rain, dark green means lots of rain, orange and red mean thunderbooms, and when it moves towards your town, it means it will rain and boom on you).
We're all going to die. But at least we'll have the satisfaction of knowing our weather isn't relatively boring. Damn those smug Kansans and Californians! We'll get on Storm Stories yet!

Meanwhile in Patten, Maine a farmer lost his barn roof. His dog was sucked right up into the sky. About an hour later the dog showed up, totally freaked out and shaking. Otherwise he seems OK. He must have landed in water to survive. I bet that dog freaks out over every thunderstorm from here on out.
