How's the economy doing?

Heavy rain showers here earlier. The really intense storms passed to the east & west.

We're so used to tornadoes tearing up trailer parks in towns we never heard of  that we forget they do hit cities. Parts of Tuscaloosa, home of University of Alabama, were devastated yesterday. Just luck the campus was spared.  Photos of the destruction in the south look like Japan after the earthquake & tsunami.

In 1999, an online acquaintance from Norman, Oklahoma was undecided about relocating. A series of tornadoes hitting Norman & downtown Oklahoma City made up her mind.  She moved to Arizona.
From, here's an  entry for the How's the economy doing? category:
McDonald’s and its franchisees hired 62,000 people in the U.S. after receiving more than one million applications, the Oak Brook, Illinois-based company said today in an e-mailed statement. Previously, it said it planned to hire 50,000.

The April 19 national hiring day was the company’s first, said Danya Proud, a McDonald’s spokeswoman. She declined to disclose how many of the jobs were full- versus part-time.
