There are tornadoes dropping all over CT

They're predicting a tornado producing cell in this area in the next 5 minutes...

Here I am in New Britain at work - they don't seem terribly concerned about this.  I don't even know if this stupid building has a basement.

We're down in the basement with 4 cats, a dog, and two terrified baby birds.

They just canceled the tornado alert.  You can come back up now.

This is where the humor potential of being able to tell if someone is spoofing shows itself.

Nope, it's true.  Check the weather channel.

Actually, the building doesn't have a basement that anyone was aware of.  It's a former Wal-Mart.  So they made us huddle in a windowless room on the first floor.

My office is in a windowless room on the second floor.  Might as well have stayed at my post.

"Nope, it's true.  Check the weather channel."

No, no.  Check Fox News to get all information you need on this situation.

Might as well... if there were a collapse or something you'd just as likely be screwed anyway.

Your Wal-Marts are two-stories?

Our Wal-Marts are not two stories to my knowledge (I never shop there, so search me), but there might be a second floor with storage or something, that they helpfully converted to icky windowless offices.

It's very depressing, actually.

Ya'll are lucky.  Here we get the warning 15 minutes after the tornado has gone through.  The weather service can suck it as far as I'm concerned.

Clay, we got the warning AS the tornado was going through.

Funny, I first read this as "There are tomatoes dropping all over Connecticut" -- and wondered what was making the tomatoes fall from the vines.

Must have been those tornadoes.

Ah, good to know they keep up the same level of quality around the country.
