    Love Them and Hate Them

    I'm facinated by a tornado, but scared to death that everytime there is a big storm that a tornado will hit my house and destroy everything that I have. I'd love to chase one for some reason. I don't know what it is. I guess cause it's just so amazing how they work and the...

    I Don't Have a Phobia of Them...

    ... But I live in the midwest and anyone who is not crazy should fear and respect their power.  I am somewhat fascinated with them as well.  I dream about seeing them sometimes or running away from them.   Lately we have been having a ton of warnings for ...
