    Awkward???????!!!!!!!!

    ...though it does seem a bit odd to thank the Lord who just saw fit to kill all those other people........awkward.

    Great response in the face of the awkward moment: But I don't blame those who do thank the Lord.

    They showed Miranda and Blake on the Nightly News from Ok City. They were singing it as a dedication to the storm victims....Over You. Miranda sounded really quite good!! Toby Keith was on too, he has flown back to Moore, I know he will do something to help!

    I WOULD LIKE TO ASK THE POWERS THAT BE:

    When you live in or near Tornado Alley (where 80%-90% of the world's tornados occur yearly) and you experience at least one deadly tornado every decade..........................why-oh-why don't you build schools with basements or storm cellars ?!?!?

    One teacher had the presence of mind to send some kids into the restroom and they were spared.

    There are a couple reason that they are not built in schools. They have put some safe houses in a few schools here in OK but it takes so long to be approved

    1) Cost 2) The red tape that surrounds them being approved by the state 3) Here Oklahoma, our soil doesn't soak up water very well so with the rain from a tornado any kind of basement cellars or basements would flood

    Thank you for responding. I considered those things but am still amazed. Considering the inevitability of hazardous tornados, cost and red tape seem ludicrous to me. America has some of the finest engineers in the world capable of building 120-story wind and earthquake - proof buildings. Building a flood-proof or flood-repellant structure doesn't seem like a herculean task by comparison.

    In downtown Chicago there are skyscrapers built on what used to be Lake Michigan. Here in California, the earthquake laws are so strict that they tear down public buildings and schools just to replace them with re-engineered buildings. At my expense and to comply with the law I had to have a plumber re-install my water heater so that it and it's pipes would move with the quaking earth rather than break the gas and water pipes during a quake.

    That has all been explained on numerous broadcast. It is very complicated. These are working class people, mostly in Moore. They can't afford personal shelters, without federal help. There is a very long waiting list for that.

    Many of the newer schools are being built with safe rooms. My school has a couple of big rooms. I have to say though that in an F5 I still don't know if I would trust those rooms. Unfortunately the Moore schools were older buildings.

    Looks like Toby is going to wait awhile, before he has his benefit. They are predicting bad storms in my area between 5 and 6 this evening.
