Texas is HUGE, of course they get more. We are about in the middle in the tornado rankings, more towards the top then the bottom in number.

No, something to be thankful for! They showed a pic of that poor little girl, she was only 10, adorable kid, the house collapsed and she was stuck in there overnight and did not make it

It really depends on *where* in Texas you are. We've had a couple very small ones touch doen in Houston, but nothing incredibly wild like in, say, Kansas.

Then there is that town in Oklahoma that seems to get hit every year. Looks like the cold front is mostly getting you guys wet down there, flooding instead of tornados. Sometimes flooding is worse though, especially if it involves sewage mixing with the water and potentially contaminating drinking water.

Speaking of contamination, ISU lost to U of I, that made the front page, the Iowans here are devastated (well the cyclone fans, the U of I fans are thrilled), not one mention of the epidemic on the front page. Not gone through the entire paper yet, I would hope it at least gets a mention though, somewhere! Just because there have not been any reported cases in Iowa does not mean that it should be ignored, this is big news, and you never know, it could still spread here, or someone could go out of state, as people here often do, and pick it up there because they do not know to be careful... Iowans are nutty sometimes.

Yes, I went through the entire paper and they did not mention the E. coli epidemic once, had an article about the football game they lost to the big rival school... Kinda nutty and pathetic. They have not confirmed the second death being part of the epidemic yet, but it is most likely the case, a little toddler in Ohio, so sad !
