    Three more tornadoes near Denver today. Two of them by work, to the point that my employees were calling me asking what they should do.

    I work in Castle Rock, Colorado. My parents live in Parker, Colorado. The video that was shot is amazing (in Castle Rock). They even show a map and it shows where I live, Centennial Colorado.

    Check it.

    I hope I'm done with tornadoes. That's four in the last 5 days.

    Jesus, if I had that many tornadoes hitting my area, I'd freaked.

    Hope everything's okay, Kickback.

    Wow, Kicky hope everything is okay.

    I know KC had a rash of tornadoes like that a few months back, I think eight in a two week time span. One actually touched down less than ten miles from my house. Scary stuff.

    Hope no one you know was injured. On a side note, I would love to chase them with my camera.

    Did you recommend that they run outside and spin around REALLY fast in the opposite direction, in order to defeat the tornadoes Flash-style?

    Either that or LOOT THE KB!!!11!!

    Damn man, hope there's a safe place or something to go too If needed.

    Tornados (tornawdos?) are scary as hell, but also exciting. Make me feel all adventerous and stuff, like stealing someones pickup and rescuing some hos

    You Castle Rockers and your damned wind cycles, you interrupted my afternoon programming with the "OMFG PLEASE DON'T DRIVE UP TO CASTLE ROCK, WAIT MAYBE 40 MINUTES" warnings from Weathermen.

    I was, literally, in the process of getting beer to get smashed when I got like 5 phone calls (from my assistant manager, from two employees, one at work and one at home who could still see it, my parents, and then my ex fiance's current fiance) regarding the tornado.

    So what did I do?

    Watched the report on the Comcast booth at the mall I was at (about 5 miles north of all of this), then went and got booze and got mildly intoxicated.

    I know that tornadoes can happen anywhere if the conditions are right but this is ridiculous. Has Colorado been incorporated into Tornado Alley?

    Anywhere is right, but Colorado is not in Tornado Alley I live in Tornado Alley, in Nebraska so I've seen one that was exciting, but thank God it was far away. But still I hope everyone is alright, I think personally the weather is getting extreme maybe do to global warming, but still tornadoes are unpredictable and you just need to know what to do to stay safe. Besides property can be replaced, lives can't so stay safe and be smart. Man, that sounds like someone from the Red Cross would say, but all well.
