Did anyone see where a huge tornado hit Wuhan, China. Over 12 dead and multiple injuries.  Absolutely destroyed part of the city.  Videos of it show that it was a monster.  Another one hit 78 miles south of there.  Crazy Wx.

Wuhan does have a subtropical climate that resembles northern and central Alabama so it isn't too surprising to see tornadoes even some significant from time to time.

It does stink for them because people are going to throw things in their faces due to that especially on social media as we saw here.   

This trend about laughing at people or mocking them after a natural disaster is a pretty disturbing trend in humanity and social media that I have started to see in the past 10-12 years. This includes the scumbags who made statements after 4/27/2011 or 3/2/2012 like "Haha bet you like your government assistance now".

That’s asinine. The people in Wuhan already live under an oppressive government. They didn’t deserve to be the epicenter of the virus any more than destructive weather. That kind of statement highlights the exact problem we have today of inference of a statement or mandate upon about an entire people or race that’s not justified.

Parts of SE Oklahoma into Central/Eastern TX could see 10+ inches of rain in the coming days. 

That may temper heat threats from the SW perhaps early on in the Summer.

Bruce, if we are drunk posting on Sunday, why didn't you tell me?

I'm sort of tapped out after last night.

The early taste of summer heat isn't even set yet and Bruce goes off and makes a rather insensitive comment. Y'all get your rural, no complete sentence typing goober and put him in timeout.  ::coffee::

Again sorry for the non weather post. I 40 bridge in Memphis will remain closed indefinitely. A “catastrophic “ event was avoided due to the impromptu inspection by ARDOT. So scary.

Update on this story... it seems the crack was seen by a drone in May 2019, but it went unreported.  :o

That inspector has been fired...

If you’re going to focus blame, it goes on CCP.

The people there really don’t have a choice in their leadership.

The new normal for the Tennessee Valley: Not significantly warmer, but much wetter. NYT put together a good graphic that illustrates the changes in precipitation and temperature.

This includes the newest 1991-2020 data for the entire lower 48.

Bring on the heat this weekend, looking forward to running season next couple months with heat and humidity.  Has been a nice cool spring with essentially no severe weather to speak of here which has been awesome! Thank goodness for seasons.

Same here!  Bring on the heat!  Time for pool to warm up.  Granddaughter can swim in freezing cold water but not me!  It has to be normal cold water.  Old joints do not like cold. But I did get injections in hands this morning after gardening the past few weeks. So worth it!

Yeah, our neighborhood pool is open, and I've seen kids in there already.  ::cold::

I guess when you're that age, the fun outweighs the shivering.

I can't imagine that water being anywhere near warm with temps struggling to make it to 80 so far and recent nights still in the 40s. I like a few days near 90 before the water gets comfortable for my taste.

I am ready for some sunny weather. This has been one of the most overcast Mays I have seen in a long long time and I am 58.
