Tornado sirens

What are the things that puzzle, enrage, delight and tickle you as you go about your life in Madison?

Tornado sirens

Why have Tornado sirens gone off several times on the West side since 7:30 tonight? There is no storm on radar. Malfunction? Mudslide? Nuclear missile incoming? UW basketball party?

I don't know, but I heard something far more ominous: the sound of a lawnmower. Some psycho felt compelled to mow mud — or last year's leaves, I dunno.

Get a freaking rake, yo!

Some of you may recall the stories I shared last year of my crazy, lawn-obsessed neighbor . Well, he's still crazy and he's most definitely still lawn-obsessed. Today he mowed his lawn for the second time this year. I'd say this guy needs a hobby, but clearly he already has one. A loud, gas-guzzling hobby.

Shorty -- where are you located? I'm off Midvale near Odana and didn't any sirens today.

I survived the tornado/mudslide/earthquake/missile attack.

I guess it's pretty funny to make fun of tragedies when you're not part of one.

Anyone you know died in the mudslide?

I don't know anyone who died in any tornado, mudslide, earthquake, or missile attack. I wasn't making fun of those tragedies. I was wondering what was causing the sirens to go off. If I was making fun of anything, it was the malfunctioning sirens.
