    I've seen one from a distance,

    Too Close!

    When I was really little I was in a house at the top of a hill.  A tornado touched down at the bottom.I've been terrified of tornadoes ever since.

    My worst nightmare. The sound,

    size, shape, color and sheer force of these things are always creeping up in my dreams. The sound and size is bad enough, but the thought that you can't do anything about these monsters is truly terrifying. In 1997, when I was two, my family moved to Michigan. This was a huge...

    I Live In The Midwest

    In the midwest and there are usually ten signs of tornados in the summer. I am scared that they'd come and ruin my house that I have only had since the end of 6th grade. I don't want it to ruin all of the things I have worked so hard to forget.
