They just announced that there is a tornado watch here, man, i guess hurricane days arent all that..... Oh well, at least its not a warning because that would suck and we'd probably have to stay here till it was over because we are about to leave. woohoo, 3 day weekend for me!!!!!

Your 8th grade science teacher is a stupid *****. watches is when there could be one, warning is when they see one and its bearing down on your ass.

Watch = There is a high possibility of one forming. Warning = There is a comfirmed report of a funnel cloud in contact with the ground. I know this os well because I've lived in Texas, Oklahoma, and am now living in Kansas.

Naw, warnings aren't bad either. The funnel is usually very small and has little chance of damage. Usually when a bad cell moves through here in Iowa, (bad as in most of iowa) there is about 20 funnels reported to have touched the ground at in a few minutes. Only one or two of those will cause any damage, even if they do they are more likely to occur in isolated areas. If this were a more populated state it would be different.
