    Crowded doors around Walmart everyone's watching this half tornado in the air. Doubt it will come all the way down but #### it's so loud in the Walmart from the hail I can't hear anything

    Don't worry about the truck. The tow truck drivers will take care of that. It won't be there when you come back outside. Probably hold it hostage until your company pays the ransom of around $10K.

    Wow, looks like the place was bombed. But I question the truck drivers that were killed, were they in their cabs, did they try to get out? Were they in the parking lot or in the truck plaza in the fuel isle? Because when you zoom in to that big picture and you look at the trucks that were side-by-side they’re still all side-by-side. Which gives credence to my trainers theory.

    Couple of rough cells on i80 in Nebraska this afternoon/evening, too.
    Sky turning greenish, and wind coming hard from north to south while the cell moves west to east.
    Hard gusty winds 50+mph

    Rough sledding.

    Didn't hear any Mustache Cloud alerts around though.

    In the Wal Mart, if it's not too crowded. You need to be in a small room with no external door or wall.

    Even a deep drainage ditch is a better place to be than a truck. BUT...

    If there are no other, safer places to be, then lie down between your seats and bunk cabinets, and drag your mattress out of the bed and hold it over you to catch flying debris and glass.

    I always thought that if I was in a spot like that I would try to hurry and leave before one touch the ground

    I would go to the changing rooms right in the middle of the store. Take a bra and panties in there with you so no one looks at you funny.
