    I Could Not Move

    I worked on the 45th floor of a building that faced a river.  There was a tornado warning.  My boss and I ignored it until... The sky turned yellow, then black; Hail buffeted the windows, And the very air ROARED! We saw the funnel cloud turn into a tornado, then...

    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.

    Tornadoes Make My Spine Tingle...

    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!

    1992

    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...

    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...

    I am all about honesty. If you enjoy doing something, and aren't hurting anyone there is no shame. You should be able to do it and be open about it.
