    What all sites are you all using to check this path out? I downloaded Hurricane app but wanted to see what everyone else was using. Walmart on 42 was crazy yesterday. I just went looking oil for my oil lamp and none was to be found. So I bought a $20 solar spot light. Still had lots of those left lol Also still had right many basic white candles.

    Watch means that conditions favor the occurrence, but warning means it is actually happening in the area.

    Watch vs. Warning: What's the Difference

    With the severe weather season underway, now is a good time to go over the difference between tornado and severe thunderstorm watches and warnings. A WATCH means that the potential exists for the development of severe thunderstorms or tornadoes, depending upon the specific type of watch issued. In the case of a tornado watch, this DOES NOT mean that a tornado has been seen or even indicated on radar...it just means that conditions are favorable for the formation of tornadoes in thunderstorms. Similarly, a severe thunderstorm watch means that conditions are just conducive for the development of severe weather, and DOES NOT indicate that severe weather has been reported. While no immediate action on the part of the general public is required for the issuance of a watch, citizens should keep up to date on the current weather situation and be prepared to seek shelter if necessary.

    A WARNING, on the other hand, requires more immediate action and should be taken seriously. A severe thunderstorm warning indicates that severe weather is imminent in your area or is already occurring (based on either human observation or doppler radar). The term severe refers to hail greater than or equal to 1.00" in diameter and/or wind gusts that meet or exceed 58 mph. Although these storms can also be associated with dangerous cloud to ground lightning or heavy rainfall that is capable of causing flash flooding, neither of these two items serve as criteria for a severe thunderstorm warning being issued.

    Think of it as your mother telling you to watch in both directions to see if a car is coming before crossing the road and her warning you that a car is actually coming and not to cross now.

    You can also use kerosene. That was the original fuel for such lamps back in the day. It is not as clean burning as some of the the more processed lamp oil, but it may be better than darkness.
