Storm Watch

Storm Watch

Sunset, storms, tornado, poetry


sunset glowing

clouds building

winds howling

storms brewing

news watching

nerves twitching

life in tornado alley


I am very grateful that yet again we had a miss on a tornado moving through the region. NW Arkansas is just east of what is referred to as “tornado alley” for the high number of tornadoes that hit the area. About once a year, we have a storm that gets really close or passes through the area, but so far, no direct hits to the town I live in. Many thanks to the storm protectors. πŸ™‚

  1. I don’t know how anybody can live where tornadoes are common!!!! It is like an earthquake, not much time to run and get safe vs a hurricane or something you watch for days. The suddenness and brutality of tornadoes is frightening. Wow! Hunker down Brad and stay safe. I am in the opposite boat up here in the mountains awaiting some kind of snow storm event. Oh lucky day….It’s called hunker down by the wood stove! Stay safe down there….Happy weekend…VK πŸ™‚

  2. Wow…you are close to Tornado Alley!….I love the poem – in it I sense your anticipation. I believe that extreme weather conditions have a profound effect on our whole being….I get that from your words. Brilliant. Janet πŸ™‚

  3. Tornadoes scare me, Brad!! I dream about them…have no idea the meaning behind that. I have seen ‘waterspouts’ off the coast. And while we have to deal with hurricanes here, at least we get a lot of warning. Will send prayers to keep you tornado free through this upcoming season!! ❀
