Yep. The time I was awakened here one morning by tornado sirens and was reminded how little truly secure shelter this house offers (in a place where tornadoes seldom exceed EF-1, though it’s always the exceptions that get you), convinced me that if I were sent to live in Tornado Alley I would try to find a livable ICBM silo on the real estate listings.
The Blather Weather Channel has been focusing on a dumpster seen on the second floor of the motel, and claiming it could weight anywhere from 1,000 to 3,000 pounds.
That seemed excessive to me, since it looked like a relatively small unit — something like a three-yard unit, which one company says can’t exceed 500 tons at collection. I’m assuming that means dumpster and contents.
We had a 40-yard dumpster brought to our previous house on a couple of occasions, and those can weigh up to 12 tons. I’m wondering just where these people on TWC got their information.
Then again, I always wonder where they get some of the things they say…
