    Tornadoes Make My Spine Tingle...

    I LOVE tornadoes. I love watching videos of them, pictures of them, and reading or hearing stories about them, but I've never seen one in real life; I guess that's a good thing. Where I live, a tornado is a VERY RARE occurance, so it's frightening to hear a tornado watch on the...

    Not Sure Why I Got Such A Strong Interest In Tornadoes...

    But I remember being very afraid of storms as a small boy. My mother also had a fear of storms, but she actually encouraged me to learn more about them so I wouldn't fear them so much. Well, when I turned about 14 years old, my interest in learning about severe storms increased...

    How It Started

    When I was on a road trip with my uncle, we were in a tornado. I was maybe five or six, I remember screaming in the car. It was too much for me. As I grew up a little more my fear of severe weather grew as well. In fourth grade a tornado came while I was in school-it missed, but...

    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...

    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.

    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!
