Glad you made it through...Running from Tornado's is one of my re-accuring nightmares.
the tornado before that came down behind me and as it was touching down the wind was lifting my trailer off the ground. that tornado touched down on a bridge and tore it up pretty good. before that the tornado landed on the same bridge and took out the lighting. i had just decended the bridge and watched the lights go out in my rear view mirror. i've never had nitemares about tornados i seem to just run into them once in awhile

Not living in an area that has tornados, I am fascinated by them and would love to be a storm chaser. Two years ago on the way back from Florida, we were in the tornado watch area in Virginia Beach and we had to leave the RV and go in a shelter at the RV park. Fortunately for everyone but me, nothing happened although we did get heavy rain and strong winds. Maybe next time.

I want to see one from a safe distance, but its hard to do that if your sitting in the assumed position in the basement.

The one I saw 2 years ago was just trying to form and when it finally came down it put a real hurt on our northern neighbors.

Relly scary stuff them tornados. One of my RC buds filmed one during the outbreak over the last two weeks, was just over a mile from his house and over a mile wide at the widest swath it cut. No property damage I guess, just some bushland, but multiple vortices and the whole deal. We've had some brushes with microbursts and had a couple super cells go over the house that spanwned small tornados north and east of us a couple years back. I'd freak if I lived in the famous "alley" F3 hit the county north of town in '84, and of course there was the Black Friday F4 in Edmonton in '87. No nice thing wherever you live

grab all the kicks you can baby, you only make this scene once!

Did you know that during the chariot scene in Ben Hur a small red car can be seen in the distance?
