Tornado alley

Not much to report today...wireline just keeps being a lot of the same stuff over and over. They emphasize different details but really it's about the same as the day before. The only news to report is that while downhill today we came under a tornado watch. We got to cut short the standing in our sauna suits and sit in the air conditioned part of the shop that serves as the tornado shelter. We sat around for about 30 to 45 minutes and talked about tornadoes to all the kids not from the midwest. No one was really freaking out but some people were a little intimidated by the prospect of a tornado (probably due to the tornado stories we were telling...). They started driving us back in small groups because they were afraid that we would be stuck because the pond at the low point between the "up hill" hill and the "down hill" hill floods over the road between them. Luckily it didn't rain enough for that.

Tonight I go to Wal Mart for a permanent marker (to write my name on my hard hat, bag, and whatever else I think needs marking) and a bandanna to keep the sweat from running down my face. Judge if you want but it's hotter than Hades down here.
