    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...
