Yikes! Good reason to issue a tornado warning just east of Norman. This is from TOKC, the terminal Doppler radar. VERY telling. #okwx 12:43 AM

OKC's outdoor warning sirens sound in and near areas where the @NWSNorman has issued a tornado warning. If you hear a siren, immediately take shelter and get more information about the storm. invidious.fdn.fr/watch?v=kvnh-Q_S…

With the threat of severe weather, be sure to have at least 3 ways to get info about #okwx. The best sources to get weather related warnings are: NOAA weather radio, smartphone or tablet weather app and outdoor warning sirens if you are outdoors. More info okc.gov/residents/prepare-ok…

Started with the response to the 1995 bombing, was then hijacked by politicians.
Alright, I’m looking for some input on a story. If you live in Oklahoma, I want to talk and hear about what it means to you when someone says the phrase “Oklahoma Standard?” What is your instinctual reaction? When did you first hear it and what do you think about it?

This is good growth, but it will be interesting to see how this tracks with inflation and its impact on materials, labor for MAPS 4.

A lot easier to push around an old guy ....
He pushes a guy, gets clocked, and then claims “assault”. Truly satisfying...

To the folks who still think it’s okay to do this to young freelancers and people just starting out in their respective businesses. Just don’t. Seriously, it’s not a good look. People still need to feed themselves.
