Hopefully this won't actually spawn any tornadoes. Because it would really suck to take the train home and not find a home there :-(.

The good news is that I'm currently at the Current Paying Gig, which is well clear of the warning area.

The other good news is that the warning has expired, and so far local media aren't reporting a touchdown.

The not-so-good news is that another tornado warning just went up in central Massachusetts. Guess who's just slightly downwind?

We had a tornado warning, official, a few days ago. Not supposed to get those . . .

Keep safe.
