    Ever Since I Was A Kid

    I've been fascinated by them as a weather phenomenon.  Their power and wind speed.  However I don't envy anyone who's been though one and feel for anyone caught in their fury. But from a safe distance I find them mesmerizing to watch on camera.

    In 2000 I watched an F5 go by,

    less than 1/2 mile from my house. I stood on the front porch watching a wall of white (it was so wide) coming towards us. I could see parts of houses (insulation) and trees swirling around the outer edge. It was roaring. At the last minute it changed direction and went out...

    I was 6 or 7 years old when an F-4 hit our house. I remember me, my parents, 2 of my 4 sisters, and as many animals of ours as we could hold (we had a mini-petting zoo: parakeets, cockateels, cats, and dogs) all in the stairway with the couch cushions over us. I think that was...

    Tornado Dreams

    Over the span of my life I've had a handful of dreams that involved a tornado and what's remarkable is that even though I can't remember the dreams all too clearly I can remember the feeling of awe that filled me upon waking each time!
