DO: Seek Shelter

Don't: Stand outside with pair of Ninchucks and yell, "Bring it on."

DO: Stay Away from Windows.

Don't: Use a series of electric fans to steer the tornado toward your Ex's house.

DO: Bring Animals Indoors.

Don't: Try to stab the Tornado with a Wooden Spike. That is Vampires. You're thinking of Vampires.

DO: Listen for Weather Updates.

Don't: Get attached. The Tornado will eventually leave you just like everything else in your miserable life. grin2

Scars remind us of where we have been, but do not have to dictate where we are going.

What is the similarity between a tornado and redneck divorce??

I would usually freak out when there were tornado alerts around Chicago when I was a kid and sit on the edge of the front porch because I didn't want the house collapsing on me. My thought process was, why go in the basement where the entire house is above me ready to come crashing down.
I also didn't like that they made us sit with our backs to our lockers and our heads between our knees at school during tornado times, I could just picture a big row of lockers slamming down and crushing 20 kids all at once.
I guess being crushed scared me more than being sucked up into the sky! ;^)

I kinda miss tornadoes and alerts now that I live in Mexico City. I used to love the way storms would come in and the temperature would drop. I know y'all probably think I'm nuts, but believe me I'd rather sit thru a tornado (I lived in DFW), than an earthquake, with a tornado at least you can see it coming, an earthquake not so much.

Purchase a NOAA weather radio. They are a pita this time of years but worth the $$.Our weather radio went off six times in forty minutes Tuesday.

I miss thunderstorms, with all the thunder and lightning. Now that we live on the coast we hardly ever get one. And if we do it's nothing much.

I don't miss the hail or the risk of tornadoes though.

Two old guys who each owned video rental shops were talking. One guy said “ got hit by a tornado last week. Totally destroyed my entire stock of DVD’s. “ Second guy said, “ we’re you insured?”. First guy said “ yep, totally covered. “ Second guy said “ how do you start a tornado ? “
