Yesterdays Twisters in Oklahoma vs 2011 Outbreak. Thoughts from Old boyfriends and Storm Chasers.

5 years ago there was an epic historic Tornado outbreak.

Last night there was a strong outbreak of severe weather.
Not as severe thankfully as 2011 ....
... unless it was your house that was destroyed.

On radar it looked like this....

I followed it on my phone while traveling in South Carolina.

From the satellite imagery it looked like this...

Pretty classic signature for trouble even from outer space.
Astronauts from Andromedia could tell Planet Earth had problems.
Google it. Saturn's moon...

There has been a lot of discussion on watches and warnings yesterday.
Many thought another "outbreak" would erupt.
There was severe weather but not like 2011.
Understand an outbreak is best seen in the real view mirror.

Good article online at Forbes by Marshall Shepherd.

As it's a matter of perspective you read the article and see what you think.

Below I'm sharing some videos and links for the 2011 OUTBREAK.

Video of the 2011 Outbreak in Alabama.
It was a huge outbreak across multiple cities and Alabama took it hard.

For those of you who want to see how that played out in real time.

That last link is from TWC coverage.

Spoiler Alert:
"2 merged into 1"

Birmingham is a large city.
Not a Twister tripping along on the prairie.

Extreme damage in a large metropolitan area is problematic.

NWS report is below.

Truth is as my friend says... 
"it's Auntie Em season" so we are in outbreak season.

You know the Wizard ALWAYS had a thing for Dorothy in retrospect..
...but I digress.
But you know you wonder....
.... did Mrs Gulch die in the Twister like the wicked witch??

Whether you are a Baby Boomer or Generation X kid... 
Hollywood has shaped our thoughts and memories.

Fast forward years later... cows still flying.

And Auntie Em becomes Aunt Meg...
Ya... think on that ;)

Cows.... Moo...

So... stay tuned because we will have more Twister weather before...
.... we see Tropical Storm or Hurricane Bonnie.

Words and music.
Grammar and ideas.
