Twice in the last half hour I've heard tornado sirens and seen one emergency alert message on cable. But there's perfectly blue skies and nothing showing up on radar in the entire midwest.

Weirdness.

They went off here in Lawrence too. I figured it was because they were testing them after they went down during that sequence on Sunday.

Someone f*cked up then, the message on cable wasn't the test message.

And when did they move the tests to tuesday in the middle of the month? I swear it's been the first wednesday since I moved out here.

Lawrence is a different deal -- the sirens in Lawrence are being tested because they maybe ****ed up on Sunday. The ones around the rest of the state are because of statewide testing.

Usually every monday at 12:00 pm here in Topeka.

Today there was a state wide siren testing PLUS a mandatory drill.

The monthly tests are up to each municipality... today's is a mandatory statewide test, no matter what the municipality decides to do.

Ahh. Well, thanks for filling me in. I had no idea what was up, I thought test initially until I saw the cable alert and then I was in WTFville. Thought maybe there was a problem with the system.
