So much for looking forward to Spring

For the last couple of days I've been watching the news every chance I get, watching the awful tornadoes that have hit in Missouri and Oklahoma. Growing up in southern Louisiana, I've been through my fair share of hurricanes, but tornadoes? I couldn't handle that. It's the whole "very little warning" aspect that makes me so frightened. With a hurricane, we have a pretty good idea if there is a chance of something making it's way to us. We've got days to gas up our cars, buy food and water and batteries, cover the windows with wood. But the tornado in Joplin, MO happened so quickly, people weren't even able to think before it hit.

1500 people still missing. I'm just speechless.
