Tornadoes are a fact of life in this part of the country (and the obvious namesake for the name "tornado alley"). After a while of being here, I've noticed that, at least as far as the locals are concerned, the tornado siren seems to mean "go outside and look up at the sky" rather than the "duck and cover" that I thought it meant. As far as I'm concerned, it means the power is going to go out in the lab, and I'm going to have to fix the stuff that goes wrong...
