Those poor people. It got scary in NE Colorado last night, but in the face of what happened in Greenburg...

Yep, tragic. Seven dead and scores of injuries. The archived RADAR images will be available in the next few days. It'll be interesting to look at them, but sad because of what damaged they (tornadoes) caused.
