Nah, the train would have had to catch on fire, slide off the track, thru a
residential neighborhood and a school before coming to a halt.

I had the same reaction!

"Is that a tanker coming at me?

Is that fire!?"


I wanted to run away from my computer just seeing that thing barrelling towards the camera...

That's just HO!

I didn't see the tanker flaming until others pointed it out so I had a second look.

Ok, not HO. That looks more like O-Scale.

There's just something about tornadoes that's freakier than any other natural disaster. The form is just so menacing and they can just pop up without warning. Visually, at least... there's nothing that comes close, imo. Growing up in the midwest, it could be a sunny afternoon, and minutes later, pitch-black at 3 in the afternoon and tornado conditions.

We just drove partly across the country. Encountered some weather on the way back. Here's a pic from my wife's car. Not 15 minutes earlier, we were driving in sun. The storm to the left in the pic hit us about 25 minutes after the pic. It was perfect tornado conditions. We barely made it off the road to some shelter in zero visibility conditions. Never saw any twisters, but was almost surprised we didn't, given the high winds and nature of the storm.

driving outta OKC the weather here in OK can get pretty hairy in a hurry

the saying around here is "If you don't like the weather in oklahoma just wait a second" and it happens that fast sometimes

Yea, we used that saying in St. Louis growing up, too... but I think it's even more applicable where you live. We drove through micro-storms all through the panhandle, OK and even one in NM. But, the big bad-boy was in OK. We planned to make it to Amarillo and ended up having to stay in OK.

It's always funny being back in the midwest. Mother Nature is always right up in your grill, one way or the other.
