@raysadad I’ve just started to see them in convenience stores in OKC the last month… Don’t know how “new” the idea is…
@DahlD my sense is yes, but it depends on your specialization & focus. Good luck with your transition!

@articulatebrian Yes, all ok from last night’s storms. Thanks :-)
@jenwagner thanks so much! It was a crazy night. The son of a church staff member my wife works with lost his home in Piedmont :-(
@gibsonsgolfer Ugh, I didn’t see that. I saw they have 3 different $5 “in app” upgrades too. More $$$. Great idea for a visual cookbook tho

@johnpeters it was a wild evening for sure - thanks for checking :-)
@articulatebrian I think Moore came out ok this time
Kudos to our OKC meteorologists for making early predictions of this tornado outbreak. @OKCPS let students out early on last day of school
@dkuropatwa we are good,looks like all the bad stuff has passed us by. The line of storms is well defined, hopefully the excitement is over!
@00KEVEN @mflynch thanks
@jimwenz it will certainly be a night to remember! Glad we dined together last night :-)
suckzone Just missed seeing a big wedge. :( Still early yet.
@kathyschrock thanks for sharing his twitter ID!
@dkuropatwa yes - unfortunately it looks like that one may stay on the ground awhile :-(
@rmbyrne we shall :-) thanks!
@teach42 we are ready to tuck heads if needed! For now we’re ok tho :-)
@dkuropatwa watch the tornado on the ground in Chickasha - hopefully it will pull up soon, it’s moving toward SW metro of OKC
@glovely yes, google advice! :-)
@articulatebrian yes, watching that one too. Looks like it’s going to track to Moore like the May 3rd tornado did. South of us.
@dkuropatwa yes, we are all good. Sorry you’re here for this. Stay near a shelter, watch TV. Our stormtrackers are the best in the world.
@glovely I’m at home with my family in NW Oklahoma City, just north of The Village
Another supercell is forming west of OKC & could spawn a tornado. We are ready to go into our saferoom if needed. Wild night in Oklahoma!
Tornados are on the ground near us, but first one is missing us just NW of OKC heading to Guthrie
