  1. Pretty amazing hook echo. While I've not seen that many reflectivity images of tornadoes, out of all the ones I've seen, this one might be the most dramatic and distinct.

    Best thing about this whole thing, and undoubtedly saved a ton of lives, is the NWS nailed the warning... 16-30 minutes advance notice is awesome. It's really amazing how long we have come with tornado predicitions in the last 20-30 yrs.

    btw, I think I might consider moving away from Moore OK after 3 deadly tornadoes in the last 14 yrs. yikes..
