Last Friday’s severe weather outbreak involved more than just a few near misses. It provided a rather disconcerting experience each time the civil defense sirens began bellowing their terrible sound into an atmosphere already churning with nature’s fury.

From there, it went downhill. And they sounded again and again with each new indication of atmospheric treachery.
