    Just seeing one, even on TV, scares me.  Those sumbitches can do some real damage and never wanna meet one.

    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.

    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.
