While hauntingly beautiful, the supercells our Great Plains are known for seem to be just around the corner. March was super gentle on us. A little rain, some wind and cool temps. April has been cool and breezy. At some point, Mother Nature is going to remember that she normally hammers SWOK and go to work doing so.

While it may seem like Spring might take it easy on us this year, we're definitely due a visit from Uncle Murphy. If you haven't put together a basic tornado prep kit, you might do that. Nothing major, just the essentials for when the inevitable happens. Trust me, you don't want to be the person looking for things when you should be taking shelter. It's not a good feeling at all.
