  1. HA HA HA at me!….in my little burg and many others around me, probably also many parts of rural America, they set the shit off at 7 am 12 pm and 6 pm because it’s a tradition. People LIKE it…..It reminds them to put their kids on the bus, come in to eat lunch and come in to make supper. I’m currently trying to introduce them to the watch device….TRUE!!!

  2. It only gets sticky when you have a tornado around and it goes off between storms. What in the fuck could go wrong with that scenario?…I’m starting with the watch idea….then I’ll work my way up….

  3. Willy, I’ve spent all but two years of my life in California. The two years out were spent in Oconomowoc Wisconsin. Garden spot of, well Im not sure where. Moved their from LA in the late 60’s as a kid. Talk about culture shock. That town is in the middle of Tornado Alley. A fight a day. Hey, who you going to get behind, Bart Star or Roman Gabriel. Jack Snow was bad ass for a little white guy. Deacon Jones, loved the guy. Where the fuck was I? Oh yea, nobody in that community, including out of place Californians would have not thought about slitting the throats of the hackers.

  4. Brad, I too had never been in tornado country until about a year and half ago….I really don’t understand setting the siren off unless you need it. It’s a very bizarre thought process for me. Luckily they don’t set it off on Sundays as that’s a day of piece and quiet in honor of the Lord Jesus….Jesus don’t make tornados on Sunday….

    There’s not a county in tornado country that hasn’t had a barn lifted off it’s foundation one year a set gently on a neighbor property only to be lifted off gently the following year to be set gently back on it original foundation. With new paint. Fucking amazing.

  8. Willy, Deacon Jones died in 2013. And he was still bad ass right up to the time he passed. That’s a goal for all of us. Honestly as a little kid my father and I use to love to watch that guy play the game. And it was more like a Grizzly bear slap. Seen that guy spin people 180 degrees.

  9. I don’t miss those freight trains at all. I lived
    in Nebraska till I was 18 and saw way too many of them
    damn things. There, sirens there were dual purpose,
    tornado and a attack on home soil/take cover.
    I remember the night of the tornados in Grand Island
    in 1980, they were hit by so many that they don’t have
    a final reckoning on the number. Most hazard a guess of
    about seven.
    This is now moving into tornado season time. I’da been
    pissed.

  10. No Brother, Deacon Jones was numero uno in the fearsome four. Rosie was a big man, but to slow. Here’s a name for you, Jack Youngblood, one tough son of bitch. Played quarter with a broken leg. Tough man.

  11. He was at the end of the Fearsome Foursome era. Tough man. He’d make certain 49er quarter backs shit. No mercy, no surrender.

  12. Thirty years ago such an event wouldn’t have been possible. This is what happens when everything is connected to the Internet.

    OMG,when we moved to NE, I could not believe this. I almost went door to door with a petition called Silence Is Golden, but hubby talked me out of it. It’s 7,12,1 and 6 here. Also,they don’t have MLS here, you have to go to each realtor in each town to get the listings! And the supper, dinner thing!

  15. @ RottyLover…yeah, it’s a thought process that escapes me and one that I will never be able to understand. I moved here BECAUSE of the peace and quiet.

    There’s no industry here, the towns have been drying up for 40 years, yet they put up with this completely silly tradition and can’t figure out why no one wants to come here….it’s their thinking…nice people though, friendly, polite and courteous….

  16. Nah, I can’t move back to Nebraska, too quiet now, and
    I love my international food at hand.
    Well, and it snows, that’s verboten.
