Busy today. Diverted flight from Toronto for hydraulic issues setting on runway with 4 blown tires and 76 souls.
Life's concerns should be about the 120lb pack your trying to get to the top of the mountain, and not the rock in your boot.

Mornin' Gents.  Arbitration hearing is over.  Yeah!  Looks like a "happy afternoon".

Well the excitement is over, but the plane is still stuck on the 12,000 ft. runway (UPS aint happy). The FAA is here, but don't know if the NTSB is going to show.
The poor passengers are stuck in the terminal waiting for another aircraft to come in and finish their flight. The airline sounds familiar. As if it had been in the news here lately. I don't know why United Airlines sounds so familiar.

Wild wicked weather tonight. Two tornadoes just east of our house. The Phillips 66 station, where I bought fuel yesterday is now a pile of rubble. One went through the middle downtown Wagoner, OK just to my east.
Folks ain't got a sense of humor no more. They don't laugh they just get sore.

Need to follow the rules. Just hard to determine which set of rules to follow
Now the rules have changed again.

Mornin' all, we had big hail storms all around late yesterday afternoon. They hit north and south of us but we had bright sunshine.

Yep Yesterday We had tornado warnings all evening and plenty of nasty winds.  I happen to have decided to spent the evening fishing and no sooner than I got a line wet it started raining....  luckily it was only a few drops but immediately to the east of me got NAILED!!!!  No lightening so I stayed put fishing.  That cloud was followed by 20 minutes of wind bad enough to make it almost impossible to make casts...

Lile is having to deal with some scary weather. Tornadoes are bad news.

We've gone from clear to overcast in about an hour with a chance of T-storms. We're catching the tail end of Lile's storms, but they're not predicting tornadoes.

Meghan got herself a press pass from a newspaper in Coldwater, Kansas and went through the rubble two days later....she saw a cement pad where a house had been, covered with rubble. There was a coffee table there that had a deck of cards on it. The deck of cards was all stacked up nice and neat....with one card tilted over to the side!
