For those in far off lands who read or watched recent news about tornadoes destroying homes and businesses in Oklahoma, be assured that I was not among them. Although our news staff was in “All hands on deck” mode, none of the weather in our coverage area was destructive. The closest tornado damage to us was in Pottawatomie County to our northwest and Seminole County to our north, where our editor Talina Eaker’s parents’ house was damaged.
As some of you might know, I am a licensed amateur radio operator (kc5tfz), and an avid scanner listener, so Monday was a very exciting day for me radio-wise. I had four radios going, plus television (with the sound down) and Mesonet radar on two computer screens.
So, rumors of my demise were greatly exaggerated.
