Just had a second confirmed tornado touchdown in Springfield MA. I live in RI just over the border and we had a tornado watch about an hour ago and we are still in a watch right now.

Lord let it go. Why have you let a woman not even in office ruin your life?

She is not ruining my life. We are not married or anything.

I do appreciate you calling me Lord, though. Keep it up.

Would Palin giving a speech put out enough spinning hot air to seed a twister .... yea ...RUN FOR THE HILLS

we are not such a spacious country after all. What happens in the mid-west and deep south can occur in the northeast. Let's pray that the tornadoes predicted for the NE don't develop and pray for the people in Joplin and other areas of the mid-west. God Bless America, all of it.

Wow! AOL News is now linked to the Huffington Post page and everyone knows Huff Post is left wing....but in the breaking new video of severe weather outbreaks....the announcer quotes AL JAZEERA (??) attributing our severe weather to La Nina and the temp change of the oceans. Since when do Americans need to refer to Al Jazeera for an explanation of our weather?
I usually read the posts here to see how "off" some of our society is. ....but AOL news quoting Al Jazeera- now that's just wrong. I'm sure this comment won't get posted though, you haven't posted one of mine yet because I'm not left wing and you editors can't handle an opinion that's different.

just curious .. have you ever read anything from al jazeera

They posted my comment THIS TIME because I called them on not posting mine in the past. I got tired of being silenced. I'm not "wong," nor am I wrong, but you were.

It looks like it has split into several cells now. One up by the Vermont border, another close to the CT border. Another heavy thunderstorm right by Framingham just now. Springfield is very hard hit. Is your sister ok?

based on the weather channels radar, i'm guessing she's missed the brunt, in terms of twister action. probably had/is having some bad rain come in her windows while she was trying to make her way home but i've not heard from her so i'm going to assume no news is good news...if she's driving still or trying to secure the house/outdoor stuff or just plain clean up the mess (ALL her windows were open at home) she's not going to want me calling and bugging her. i'd just started a boat load of seedling trays for her garden that were outside and she was trailering mega plants as she's a landscaper. so shes probably got her hands full no matter how good the outcome. thanks again, though. poor springfield...

I live in Brooklyn NY and up until a few years ago I have never heard of tornadoes in Brooklyn but we had one along with some other freaky weather including sudden hale. I looked out my window and it was like snow covering the outside. It was beating outside so hard and while I'm not one to be terrified of weather that experience scared the dickens out of me.

is there anything Sarah Palin haters will not try and tie her to? Jesus. People have died and these storms are serious. I highly doubt the people of Joplin find these types of comments cute or intelligent.

I'm not from anywhere near Joplin ( though a Mass Native) and I am finding those comments both annoying and repulsive!

Having by now lived in New England, Arizona and Virginia, I always get a chuckle out of the sheer ego denizens of each region have about their weather.

"You crying about a foot of snow? We don't even cancel school for less than three feet."

"100 degrees? I have to wear a sweater until it get to 110."

And so on...

The reality is, people have to be prudent. It was 104 degrees here today, with high humidity, and I don't care how much of a native you are, 104 can kill. We're all human, and we're all frail in the face of extreme heat, extreme cold, extreme wind, extreme water.

Yes, to someone from Oklahoma or Kansas, what's going on in Massachusetts right now seems like no biggie, and it probably wont be. But, until last week, one of the deadliest tornadoes in recorded history was the Worcester, Mass storm of 1953. Mother Nature can always surprise us, and usually not in a good way.
