Why do you put me in a tizzy with your so-caled tornado warnings, I removed all my lawn furniture, only to have light rain. Sirens were going off and all around us and nothing happened. I know your doing your job, but come-on!

Having lived in Buffalo during the Blizzard of 77, that was something to panic about.

bmd - not everyone is from Buffalo so it's better to be safe than sorry. Just because there was a drizzle in Rock Hill does not mean it was not raining buckets in Fort Mill. I just called my neighbors (I'm at work) and they said it was torrential rain. My husband who was on the road said it was torrential rain. Kids in Fort Mill schools were herded into a safe area, so don't blame the messenger. He has no control over the unpredictability of the weather. If you want to ignore the warnings, you are well within your rights to do so.

My point is that they blow it of proposition, I heed the warnings and take all the necessary steps.

My point was they said there was a tornado watch over the City of Rock Hill and to take cover, Guess what nothing came of it. They create FEAR! and panic. Just my two cents.

Made me laugh!....My husband just mentioned the other day as well how excited the weathermen get around here. I know it's better to be too safe than sorry and I'm not complaining....but I noticed they do seem to get panicked....the other night one channel took up 2 hours of coverage just talking about the thunderstorms-no Tornado was even spotted and then the Meteorologist kept apologizing for being on the air and interupting programing.
I used to live in "Tornado Alley" and that's some crazy weather!...when they sound the sirens there you know it's serious.

BMD~...Nice house....lol

You realize predicting weather, especially tornadoes, is not an exact science, right?

Why do I have a feeling that if the forecasters were low key in their warning about a potential tornado, and one did hit, you'd be on the board complaining that the weather forecasters didn't give you enough warning?
