It is now tearing up Tulsa and expected to hit us hard about 10 pm. I'm safe but very concerned about my wife.

They usually wheel me, bed and all, into a central hallway. It's a cinder-block building so it will withstand a major wind. It's the 500 pound airborne dumpsters that do the most damage.

Your positive thoughts will be appreciated. Tornado conditions are expected through Wednesday night.

So long as I'm okay and still have internet, I will check in.

TIA

Hope, you all get through it alright. We had a MONSTER of a storm here last night ourselves,

Wishing you, the family and neighbors all the best!

Tornado whistle went off here too. Two funnels one a little more than a mile north and the other a three miles south. Not sure if either touched down. All is calm here now.

Other than very high winds the night, at least locally, was uneventful. Courtyard full of tree limbs but Tulsa really got battered. Our lights blinked frequently but not enough to actually go off. More of the same tonight through Wednesday night. The Weather Channel looks very foreboding.

Got enough Tornado action back in the 70s, stationed at Sheppard AFB in
Whiskey-Tall Falls.

I see the Oklahoma-Texas Soil Exchange Program is still in force.

Hang on, Don!

Rat own, Macster! We joke about going to sleep in Oklahoma and waking up in Kansas due to the perpetual soil exchange program.

Went to gazebo and realized how much I love that "gathering storm" smell in the air. 74F heading to 85F but high winds make if quite cool. Crews with chainsaws clearing debris.

Later, Gatorade!

I've been keeping up with the melee of tornado activity in the high plains also.
My good friend lives about 20 minutes south of Hayes in LaCross (Kansas) and he seemed to be just NW of the activity aloft.

I'll hope all this tornado activity goes bye-bye and no others lose their lives or homes.
Pretty devastating stuff to watch even for a left coaster out here in earthquake turf.

Carry on....

Hey Don!

Oklahoma just made the national news here in the UK. Says a massive tornado touched down about an hour ago. Supposed to be up to two miles across.

Hope you're still safe my old pal.

OKC, 150 miles East, is being ravaged as I type. The wall cloud is several miles wide. Imagine the impact that could have.

It's moving my way at about 20-25 mph so that puts it here between 10 pm and 5 am. NOAH reports that the next few days are even worse until about 10 pm Wednesday.

Yeah, ROG, local news has trackers following it. To see that massive storm coming right down your throat is awe inspiring, to say the least.

Wow, Don.

Ham Radio Stormwatchers have reported that this thing is not jumping from place to place but, their words, it is apparently staying on the ground and "vacuuming" everything in its path.

You have them strap that chair to the walls in that hall, Don, you hear?

It just passed over my location without touching down so I may be okay until the next wave. The Storm Front is moving East into Missouri at over 60 mph.

Rescuers are digging through the rubble of an elementary school that was totally flattened. Now they say that a second front is forming over OKC.

One of my best friends is west and south of OKC, very near Tinker, and due east of Moore where the brunt of the damage was. It ended up about 4 miles from there when it roped out. The Doppler data said it hit 308mph, well into f5. Can you imagine an hour on the ground? And from startup to f5 that fast?

Mac, I don't remember from my time at Fort Silly in Lawton OK, but I did have some friends at Altus. How far were you from Altus AFB?

Lotta years ago, ain't it? I got out of the Army in 73.

Really bad thing happened to me in Wichita Falls. I got married. But as Pat Metheny said, "As falls Wichita, so falls Wichita Falls."

Announcing…The Birth of a Song (w/Floyd Jane)

We are excited to announce the release of a new project: The Birth of a Song (w/Floyd Jane)

Songwriter Floyd Jane shows the songwriting process from inspiration to performance and publication: http://www.pgmusic.com/?vid=IYMMZVvQdCw

The idea for this project came about when many members on this forum and elsewhere were asking questions about the song writing process. There are many aspects, and many parts of it necessary to create a song, get it arranged, performed, and then published on the internet. So we asked the great songwriter Floyd Jane, who is a regular member on this forum, if he could help. Floyd agreed and was even able to collaborate with other forum members, Janice and Bud. The result is this video we put together that you can see on YouTube or Facebook, called "The Birth of a Song (w/Floyd Jane)".

We hope this video helps other songwriters with their songwriting process, and also shows them tools that are available to them along the way. Also, we mention this User Showcase Forum, and hope to see many new aspiring or accomplished songwriters join this community :blush:

A big Thank You to Floyd for sharing your knowledge with the community and making this possible. And to Janice and Bud for your great collaboration!

Here is Floyd's original forum post for his song "A Little Bit Of Me": http://www.pgmusic.com/forums/ubbthreads.php?ubb=showflat&Number=433190

Check out Floyd / Janice & Bud’s music here:
