  • Happy, happy, happy

    Don’t get it….Van Buren was never in the forecast as a place where there might be a tornado…no mention of Crawford County.

  • Even I can guess the weather

    They missed it so bad this storm, all we heard for days was how bad it was going to be. Garret’s blog ” best chance for severe weather in two years”. We didn’t get hardly anything in NWA, I don’t expect them to be dead on but at least get close. I wish I could be wrong all the time in my job and not get fired. Next storm people won’t take it the warnings seriously. They are playing up he tornado in mayflower (which is horrible and I pray for all those), so we don’t notice how bad they missed the local forecast.
