Well some of us were crazy at the Rolla Daily News, others including myself stayed in the dingy basement to wait out most of the storm. I peaked out every now and then. I was freaking out inside especially after seeing the devastation from Joplin's tornado on Sunday. It was hard, but I was able to stay calm during the sirens and scanner going off. Especially one cop in particular on his speaker asking "Uhh... guys am I seeing what I think I'm seeing?". Yeah not a good thing to hear and with possible touch downs all around us. Clouds were circling above our building several different times. Never thought in my life I would see them circle like that, only in movies. Spending almost three hours down there made for unproductive awful afternoon. Thankfully no one was hurt. Here is some pictures from my work, glad there was none of me since my hair was an afro from the humidity.
