    No matter where you live there is always something mother nature can throw at you to mess things up. We just have to take our chances I guess. I was in a car that was lifted off the ground during a tornado - yes it's scary but I survived. I guess the safest place to be is maybe in Canada (if you live in North America).

    early reports of 91 fatalities were due to an error in compiling the data (another case of gov't accounting gone wrong) latest actual count is 24. some still unaccounted for.

    this is something we accept and deal with for living in the wonderful place we call oklahoma. on that subject...i've lived in several states and now can't think of anywhere else i'd choose to be.

    on behalf of my fellow okie's (yes that's how we refer to each other) i say a heartfelt
    THANK YOU!

    Even though they have revised the toll to only 24 its still tragic but heaps better than 90+ victims....:ugh
