1,  Scariest, tornadoes.  Luckily no major damage.

2, Used to be blue but now leaning more towards green. 

3,   Sometimes.  One of my pet charities that I donate to monthly I do online.  When I or my DDs do 5Ks those donations are on line.  There have been a few other instances of on line donations. 

4.   The storms, my DDs next chemo.

It was addressed.  The schools which were damaged/destroyed in 1999's tornado had shelters built.  But retrofitting a school with shelters is massively expensive and in general our entire society is one where we don't like to invest in "needless" infrastructure until tragedy occurs.

People in Oklahoma aren't the only ones who should have tornado shelters. How many here have a secure place that can withstand an F4 tornado? And if not, why not?

1. A few blizzards. I have the worst timing for blizzards. Was on a mountain for one, searching for a list contact. Was on the road for another. Started having contractions before a third. 2. Blue 3. Sometimes 4. The towns who have tornado warnings today. Some of the schools closed, taking away one of the safer buildings they have to take shelter in, and I worry for those families who have no storm shelter.

<<3)  Yes, I give online pretty frequently.  I love the ease of it.  I also have recurring electronic payments set up for the charities we give to every year.  I don't even have to think about it.>>

Yes, I like that as well.

1) Not gonna go there

2)  I have LOTS of favorite colors.  In general, yellow.  I have something yellow in every room of my house because yellow makes me happy.  I have a yellow wallet because it makes me happy and it is easy to find in my purse.  But my bedroom is blue and orange, and the rest of my house is earth tones with orange and yellow punches, because too much yellow makes me a little crazy.  Or maybe crazier.  My backyard flowers are generally pink, blue, and purple, with little touches of yellow and white.

3)  Yes, I give online pretty frequently.  I love the ease of it.  I also have recurring electronic payments set up for the charities we give to every year.  I don't even have to think about it.

4)  Everything that is on my mind right now is absolutely mundane, and for that, I am profoundly grateful.

What worst weather experience have you lived through

Hurricane Isabel was a doozy.  

Irene was not terrific (5 days without power) but was not nearly as horrible as Isabel.  

TD Gaston was horrible for my area...I was out of town which was good in some ways, bad in others (I wasn't able to return home for several days due to ALL the roads into our metro area being closed) but the office where I work now was flooded and the area took years to start to recover.  It probably never will completely.  

That wind shear thingy we had last summer was absolutey terrifying and our power was out for a few days, but all in all, the lasting effects weren't horrible for us.

What is your favorite color

Purple, black, dark greens (Looks like I have no simple answers today...sorry!)

Do you donate to chariites online

Sometimes

Name one thing (or two...) that is on your mind right now

Only one or two?  ;)

I guess OK and my job search would be the top two.

The inaccuracies of news reporting is inasane..  But they know how to grab a lot of attention!

"Sigh, Rock on Obama supporter!" ------------- That was not the point. I am not an Obama supporter, but I too would like to know what the back-up is for the claim that the Red Cross tried to profit from a hurricane by selling food and water to the victims.
