Wondering why we were locked into a repeating pattern of storms this spring? The answer is in the Arctic.

I discovered Dr. Jennifer Francis's first paper on arctic heating and its effect on the Jet Stream in 2012 when digging around for information on anomalies I noticed over the previous two years. She has done many studies since - and this spring's 'stuck' storm patterns are even more affirming. Here is a short, older but easy-to-understand video on the hows and whys. This is probably the most important Climate / Weather connection to date. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gAiA-_iQjdU

Safest place during thunderstorm (no basement and concrete first floor)

I moved into a home that we love but freaks me out when there is a storm. I can't figure out where to go with the kids during a storm (major thunderstorms are frequent in my area) or tornado warning (very rare where I live but has happened 1-2x ).

  1. No basement.
  2. Garage in the back that does seem to go a little into the ground. The front of my house is Slightly elevated. So when the garage door opens there is at least 6 ft that is certainly excavated into the ground. I worry the garage door would easily be ripped out if a tornado were to ever hit. Again not worried about tornadoes much but we've had a warning or two.
  3. The entire first floor is surrounded by floor to ceiling windows or glass doors. No joke. The entire first floor is on concrete slab.

The only rooms that do not contain windows are:

  1. The half bathroom between the kitchen and the first floor master bedroom.
  2. There is also a closet in the master bedroom that doesn't have a window. Same goes for the toilet room ( you know one of those bathrooms where your toilet is enclosed but your tub and shower are outside of it).

Again these rooms are on concrete. Freezing in the winter but in the summer this floor helps keep the place cold. I digress ...

Master bedroom, kitchen and living room all on the first floor surround a courtyard. Every room has glass doors leading to the courtyard w a tree in the center.

Second floor: Also completely surrounded by windows except for one closet and bathroom. But it's the second floor and going further down is safer.

Where the heck are we to go in this house during : a. Major thunderstorm (happening again today) B. Tornado ( rare)

Please help me figure this out 😆

Weird red glow in sky

I took this in Norman, Oklahoma when all the crazy storms were going on last week. I was wondering if anybody would have any clue as to what it is? I have never seen it out there even when there are storms.
