1. Favorite face moisturizer? (My clinique is running out and wondered if there is something better or same quality without breaking my face out)

2. Outside--which do you prefer or have....table with umbrella or table under a tent/gabezo?

3. When getting a mani/pedi, do you always get both at the same time?

Why were those Oklahoma schools even open?

If schools here closed for every thunderstorm that had the possibility of a tornado, our kids would be in school until they were 30.

The schools reacted appropriately.  Releasing the kids early, once the tornado threat was known, would have been worse. 

With a tornado of this magnitude, there really isn't much anyone can do. <<

Yes, releasing kids out into severe weather is not an appropriate action, it would be quite foolish actually.  I would even guess that the schools might have been a safer place to take shelter, they are often used in severe weather around here for shelter.  Homes are not often the best place to be in a tornado, depending on how they are built.

Try less than 15 minutes.

That is crazy. Some guy last night said he had 1/2 hour to get ready but I can imagine that you won't even get that much amount of time Frown

And the mayor said there are no shelters at the schools in the area as they could not afford them. He said they will rethink this now though :(

Actually it was an honest, factual, relevant answer without any passive aggressive tone involved, you might try it sometime, that would definitely be a surprise.  

It was a school day, schools are open and honestly if anyone knows anything about tornadoes and structures, schools can often be safer than many homes.

That's your opinion savcal... More lives might have been spared had they not been in school..

This post is horribly in bad taste, there are people suffering and you are second guessing from across the country, picking fights on a debate board?  This is not debate material, people are hurting.  STOP your passive agressive attacks already.

One also gets immune to the warnings a bit, we were under a torndao warning for 5 or 6 hours last night, which is different than a tornado watch.  We have had severe weather with major thunderstorms and hail on/off for about 24-36 hours now.  You prepare, you practice, you have a safe place to go but sometimes there is very little warning.  I remember tornado drills at school as a kid, my kids do the same thing on a regular basis.

My boss is one of the most respected leaders/problem solvers in the region; often called to solve problems in other organizations. He once told me the secrets to his success: Common sense and common decency. There are people here who are displaying neither. If you don't have the common sense to know what you are talking about, can you please try to muster the common decency to let this topic rest for a few days at least?
