Out of all the tornadoes I've seen, I've never seen a tractor flying around. There is not enough "s**t" coming out of the milk cow.........Obviously photoshopped.

On second thought, have you considered going to Canada by way of Omaha?

Not to worry, young traveler. Okies set out trailer parks as bait for the twister. Everyone knows it's a law that at least one trailer park gets hit with every tornado. The tornadoes go after trailer parks. It's in their DNA.

To put it in perspective, the entire central U.S. has an elevated risk of tornadoes. Last week a tiny farm town northwest of Chicago was basically destroyed by a series of tornadoes. The only way to route around them would be to head due north, then make a right when you hit far northern Canada. There are also tens of millions of people living in the central U.S., the vast majority of whom have never even seen a tornado.

I like how you called me "young" .

OK, there are thunderstorms predicted on Sat. for OK and for Sunday for Missouri and those are the days I'll be driving through those states - is it worth delaying the trip a day or just go for it and pray?

Thanks for your helpful answers!

You won't even need the prayer driving through it. You're more likely to win the Missouri lottery jackpot than have a tornado form and cross the highway at the exact moment you're driving there. Even if a tornado forms, you almost always get plenty of notice to take cover.

Very few thunderstorms have tornadoes.

The forecast says Saturday will have scattered showers and storms and a few of the storms may become severe. Basically we are going to get a lot of rain this weekend on Friday and Saturday, but nothing to really be afraid of. Just watch to see if the forecast changes.

I hate to be mean but are people really this paranoid about tornadoes? Like, they just drop from the sky on a daily basis in the spring?

I've driven up and down I-5 several times as a kid when my father was stationed on the west coast and not once did we think, "wow the San Andres Fault could just rupture and we'd get swallowed up by the earth!"

I guess that phrase "you are afraid of things you don't understand" is true.

I tend to wash the car on Friday, so if there were thunderstorms predicted I would either not go to the car wash or delay the trip. Remember, though, weather forecasters lie almost as much as politicians......at least in Oklahoma. Also, weathermen like to make a big deal out of minor stuff, so if they say tornadoes, you can expect a high wind. If they say thunderstorms you can expect a drizzle........off in the distance. If they say sunshiney and hot.......delay the trip.

For those who missed it before, here is a pretty damned good video showcasing how Stillwater has barely been missed from getting hit by tornados since 1990. I pray the near misses continue turning out that way.
