    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...

    Unnaturally

    Obviously tornados are something to be feared. My fear though is quite extreme. I lived in central Texas for 4 years, and while I never experienced a tornado while I was there, I was soooo inrcedibly terrified one would come. Every time a storm came I would have a...
