If there's no tornado I will never believe our weather people again. They have stayed lying to us all winter. 1 minute ago via Twitter for Android ·  Reply ·  Retweet ·  Favorite · powered by @socialditto

Really hoping a tornado doesn't come today. It'll be harder to wrestle it to the ground with my kidney hurtin' like this. 4 minutes ago via WhoSay ·  Reply ·  Retweet ·  Favorite · powered by @socialditto

Um, I suppose all is well, as there is now Trace Adkins and his bum kidney to save us.
