The farmhouse used in the filming of the movie "Twister" was destroyed by an actual tornado last week in Oklahoma. While most of the movie was filmed in Wakita, the farmhouse was located near Fairfax, OK and took a fairly direct hit from a tornado. So yeah, I find it a little ironic and more proof that you shouldn't test Mother Nature. She'll surprise you when you least expect it. There were no reports of flying cows, so this picture obviously came out of the movie. I thought you would get a chuckle out of it.

The temptation to go storm chasing in Oklahoma this past week was very high. Millie and I almost ventured down to Enid to see if we could spot a tornado, but by the time we finished our other chores, storms were already firing up and we decided to hold back. But wow, it was another very intense day. OKC is getting the springtime version of what Washington D.C. had this winter. Storm after storm.

If you read this in time, Sunday night at 10 on KWCH, we are airing a special piece that takes you behind the scenes here at Channel 12. It will give you an inside, detailed look at how we cover storms during severe weather season. Millie didn't make the cut this time around, but I couldn't tell that her feelings were hurt. She's just about over this TV thing; ready to move on to bigger and better things. Have a great weekend.
