Default Moore, OK Tornado May 20, 2013.

I don't think there are any other members but me. I survived it. Barely. It missed me in a direct hit and leveling my house by about 200 yards. 2 streets over is leveled. You can look in either direction and see flat as far as your eyes can see.

If you can tolerate the foul lingo and interested.... Yes, I feel lucky. Me and god had a talk, during and after !!! It's rough going now, and I won't be on much for awhile. I am on generator power at the moment. My router is plugged into a UPS back up getting charged, so for what it's worth. I'll check in when I can.

Glad you're ok hotrod. I feel bad for all of those affected. It's terrible that so many lost lives and a lot of those were kids. I hope you guys have a speedy recovery up there

Wow.....I've never experienced devastation like that first hand. We did have an F5 in '96 that destroyed a town (Oakfield Wi.) 15 miles from where we live, but it never made it this far.

Glad you and your family are safe, and my heart and prayers go out to those who were not as fortunate.

I have seen a sight like that once and I hope it stays that way. A friend of ours was one of many that lost their homes to the storm but fortunately, she and her family didn't also lose their lives. I am glad that you and your family faired better.

I heard they are working on legislation to ban tornadoes or at least strengthen the back ground checks on them.

WARNING NEGATIVE RANT !!! So if you're an Ovamit fan, DO NOT READ !!!

Is it me just having a bad attitude or is anyone else finding that the overwhelming amount of authority is hurthing us more than helping??? We have tons of Nat Guardsmen hanging out at Roadblocks sitting on their ass or their Hum V, chewing the fat, laughing and joking having a good ole time with each other waving everyone away from their home. But of course they've got mountains of bottle water and plenty of strofoam food trays from places like Rib Crib and Red Cross. And then its some punk ass kid treating you like your a damn criminal when you explain you have a house and no downed power lines at all. And when you tell him, I just drove out this way, and YOU told me I could get back in and now I can't? WTF? They're not clearing roads or removing rubble and debris, or delivering food and water to those who are without power and water. OK has been here before and do just fine. WTH do we Homeland Security here for? Obama, take your pigs home. This isn't IRAQ, it's Oklahoma and the residents damn sure shouldn't be treated that way. But it's for my own safety to keep looters out. MY ASS !!!! Let the damn people get to their homes with their ID and addresss on it, then I DARE A FUGGIN LOOTER to be caught. He'll want to be locked in jail just to be protected from the residents I"ll assure you. I think we need a roll back to May 3rd 99 and do WHAT WORKS and WHAT DID WORK. This is ridiculous !!! Oh Wait, Obama promised help didn't he??? So that's why it's riduclous. Shit does indeed roll down hill !!! We don't need road blocks Obama. We don't need your worthless punk bullies here eating donated food and drinking water for those who need it. I know I know, just a bad attitude right??? Anyone want to see my Voter Registration Card??? Anyone want to guess what party I'm registered as???

STF, I hate to say it but one Demonrat senator, (Sheldon Whitehouse, D-RI), has already hit the Senate floor and accused Republicans who stand in the way of "doing something" about "global warming" to be directly responsible for the tornadoes...
Good to see you're OK, sir, thanks for the video.
