    People who have no problem just dropping trash out of their car window. Sitting in a public park?..no problem. Just dump trash out your car window. At a Taco Bell parking lot? No issue here. Just dump your trash all over the ground. Huge litmus test for me. Litterers equal supreme dirtbags with no morality. They also have no issue making others clean up their lazy mess.

    I was out at a public park at my daughter soccer practice the other day and some turd just started dumping trash out of his car window. I wanted to throttle him. I've seen it so many times before I almost lost it. But I didnt confront him bc I was in a bad mood and could have gotten in a bunch of trouble for raking the trash on the ground with his face. Lazy turd.

    Pisses me off to no end. They do it at stop signs here, stop, open door and set out there empty McDonalds bags and cups then drive off.

    Complete laziness. Ive pulled many people over for throwing their trash out the window. As long as they pick it up and don't lie, they dont get a ticket. If they lie, it is a ticket that requires you to go to court and pay a hefty fine, in the $500 range. I had one lady throw an entire McDonalds bag of trash out of her car while I was behind her. Trash flying all over the air. No getting out of that one bozo.

    It's amazing. Just dried up here enuff for farmers to get in the fields. Ditches are being burned to get rid of the dead grasses. I swear to God!, I counted well over 100 beer/ popcans in a one mile stretch of a burnt ditch.
    This is on a very rural gravel road.

    Guess this is a blessing and curse. The wife and two daughters always hiding treats and sweets around the house. Blessing is I don't get fatter....but dang it I sure want some cookies sometimes.

    Women and their hiding places for cookies and such!

    Yeah, it's old hat. Nothing that we are not used to. They have been hyping it all week. Tinker AFB evacuated all planes, all the schools cancelled classes and most all businesses are letting employees go home early, so there may actually be something to it today. It is already setting up like the May 20th, 2013 tornado with the dry line, atmospheric heating and jet stream. Being an Okie means you're a meteorologist by default. I've been watching the neighbors cattle and they're telling me it's about to get bumpy, they have moved down into the gullies and are packing up in low spots. By all outside appearances Oklahoma seems like a boring place to live but nothing like Oklahoma spring weather to make you feel alive or thankful to be at least.

    Hoping for the best, not many events comparable to what could happen today/night.

    Only one other watch has been issued with probabilities like the one just issued.

    Tornados/weather are very interesting to me. I'll be watching live streams all afternoon.

    Stay safe. Prayers have been said.

    Stay safe of @Okiebob. I am across the state line in Arkansas. I understand the love/hate with Spring weather. Looks like we are in for an easier time. My kids' baseball games are still on for tonight.

    Stay safe

    This guy is one of the best local performers and seeing him live is a real treat. He is like a mix of George Carlin, Stevie Ray Vaughn and Groucho Marx. He is a one man show, drums operated with peddles, kazoo strapped to the microphone and playing the guitar all at once. This song is 20+ years old and full of local references to numerous to explain but it's what the wife and I sing when we go down in the storm shelter.



    Make sure to listen to the end, he goes into detail explaining what happens when a mesocyclone picks up a trailer full of pseudoephedrine and a couple tanks of ammonia nitrate.. spoiler; you get a methocyclone.. and that's totally okie

    Looks like OKC and central OK will be spared, western OK is where it will be. Cap is winning out in southern OK which is a good thing.

    The effing weather!!!!

    Canceled my mushrooming vacation due to rain and conditions 1st week of May. Rescheduled it for the end of the month and Memorial Day to use less vacation hours for same mount of time.

    Now looking like another 3-6" of rain during that time. Probably cancel it again, I want to fish.

    Next stop, 2 weeks for 4th of July timeline.
