Having lived through several tornadoes I can assure that they invoke raw primal fear deep in your soul. I imagine being Blitzed during WWII had a similar psychological effect. That feeling of needing tongs & a shoehorn to pry your nuts out of your throat afterwards is not easily forgotten. :eek:

I passed through Moore, OK in 2013 right after they had the infamous EF5 tornado in May. It was like travelling through the Ruhr Pocket in the Spring of '45. :eek: o_O :oops: Unbelievable damage.

Having lived in Spring, Texas for a number of years, I can begin to understand how one must feel. Fortunately, we experienced only a few near misses, but to see the green sky and feel the atmospheric pressure drop is more than enough to scare the crap out of me. Added to this is the treat of hurricanes.

We’ve been having some crazy weather this week: At the beginning of the week we had a severe windstorm with winds gusting to 110km per hour; yesterday we had a day long snow storm that dumped 20cm of snow on us; and, this morning it was -16*C and the sky is crystal clear. We are supposed to have another snow storm this weekend. So much for southern Ontario being the banana belt. Mind you, crazier weather has been happening elsewhere: snow in Hawaii, snow in Los Vegas and 72*F in Brussels.:eek:
