(KPLR) - When is the best time for a tornado drill? I don't know if you heard, but yesterday's statewide tornado drill for Missouri was postponed until tomorrow.

These drills and practice warnings always seem to be in the middle of the afternoon.  I guess the folks who are in charge of the drills don't work at night.

I wish they did.  That's when most families are together.  That's when a a family can discuss it's storm safety plan.

I know daytime drills are important for kids at school but we shouldn't forget about the adults who could use a little reminder about how to stay safe in a storm.

I'm JB, and that's “The Way It Oughta Be”.
