we ARE used to severe weather but not the sky being orange lol. but green skies, tornadoes, blizzards, snow storms, ice storms, winds, flooding, lightning storms, lake effect snow, snow squalls, heat waves... we get it. we had a few tornadoes last year. and in the great lakes, we commonly see water spouts (water based tornadoes). mircobursts/downbursts are common too. we were nailed by one of them last year that we had to take cover from. just as deadly as tornadoes. so bad weather is not a stranger to us. just strange orange skies are lol but we get the rain from your hurricanes lol but no hurricanes. we even get nocturnal tornadoes. a town east of us about 45 minutes away was nearly flattened by a nocturnal tornado last summer. no warnings on tv, no weather station warning. nothing. people were sleeping when it hit. people woke just as massive trees crushed their homes. miraculously, not a single person was hurt or killed. that in itself is a miracle. billion dollar damage but no casualties. but there was no warning like theres supposed to be. i was up all that night during that storm. it hit us too, just the tornado didnt touch down til it hit leamington. the Weather Network never warned anyone. they didnt say anything. and yet even without warning, people waking to the sound of the tornado in their yards or trees crushing their homes, not a single person was hurt or killed. if that aint a miracle, i dont know what is.
