    Did you notice the firestorm over the plagiarized photo?! 😉

    The consensus seemed to be that it came from a webcam in Hungary (years ago).
    Alea jacta est!

    That's a pretty solid fire escape.

    We were looking at it from the wrong perspective.
    Good eye Jim!

    A rare photo of the Omaha 5/6/1975 F4 Tornado. This is facing west across 72nd Street just north of West Center Rd. My parents home was about three blocks to the left of the funnel in this photo. My mother and younger brother were home at the time. I had just left for work at the Post Office about 20 minutes before it struck. My parents were very lucky their home only sustained about $10K in damages. I was working in the main post office building downtown and the supervisors didn't say anything to us college kids working until after 10pm. I left as soon as I heard. It was like a war zone in our neighborhood. Hard to believe it was 45 years ago.

    I lived in Dallas when one hit there in 1957, I'll never forget that day as long as I live. I watched it coming towards our house, it was just a few miles away. My mother and I were getting ready to get in her car and leave, but It turned and missed our neighborhood. I was 6 yrs old at the time. My father was at work. It was not as big as the one above, if it had been the death toll would have been much higher.

    It was a very sad day in Omaha. My mother and brother said it sounded like a extremely loud train running right over the house. They were in the basement hiding under the steps. You're lucky you were missed in '57. The Omaha cop at 23 was just three years older than me at the time. My parents had a large yard maybe 18,000 sf. Over the following two weeks the City of Omaha hauled 27 large dump truck loads of debris from the back yard. It was incredible. No electricity for a couple of weeks. On the first night the neighbors set up an outside bar (a large cooler) in their garage/driveway. Around two am that night I went two doors away to get a couple of cold ones. As I turned around in the driveway with the beers, a National Guard jeep pulled up and the guards asked me what I was doing? They actually walked me home, two doors away. Couldn't sleep with helicopters overhead all night. We made it through okay.

    Being from Iowa and Kansas I learned to expect and respect tornadoes. Now I live in a place where if we get to hear thunder once a year, it's headline news. Oh sure once in 50,000 years a mountain blows up. Big woop. I miss thunder storms.

    Speaking of cops and speed...

    ...


    Speaking of which -- a famous and somewhat similar tale from some time ago...

    https://oppositelock.kinja.com/favorite-sr-71-story-1079127041
    ...Somewhere, 13 miles above Arizona, there was a pilot screaming inside his space helmet. Then, I heard it. The click of the mic button from the back seat. That was the very moment that I knew Walter and I had become a crew. Very professionally, and with no emotion, Walter spoke: "Los Angeles Center, Aspen 20, can you give us a ground speed check?" There was no hesitation, and the replay came as if was an everyday request. "Aspen 20, I show you at one thousand eight hundred and forty-two knots, across the ground."
