    Twisters

    Ok so I had to sit under my desk at work for an hour today, because appearently several large tornados wanted to visit. The weather center said they were 70 mph winds moving east at 40 mph. Some people started freaking out, calling everyone they knew. Worrying like crazy. While I took a small nap under my desk, I was actually hoping that the roof of our building would fly off, or I would get to see something. Apparently I was in the wrong part of town. The drive home was fun though. Steel posts were bent in half, road signs were crushed under guard rails, missing guard rails, huge trees totally de-rooted, buildings missing roofs, wrecks on the highway. It was great. Plus the air was so crisp, clean, and smelled like pine trees.

    So are you afraid of twisters? Have you ever been through a tornado before? Are you the kind of person who will freak out and think you are going to die? Or the kind that love the destruction? What are your experiences?

    One of my friends is deathly afriad of twisters, she drove like 100 miles an hour one time just to get home to her basement because a twister was coming. I was like calm down, they aren't that bad.

    I'm afraid of them after I saw footage of a small child that was found in the wreckage, and it was completely twisted up.
    After that kind of scarred me, I've had a pretty big fear.

    Re: Twisters

    I can't say that i really fear tornadoes...I really like them actually...I've survived at least two that I can remember...and in both cases I set where I was at and watched them pass by from inside buildings and storm shelters...I have to admit that I rather enjoy seeing what mother nature can tear up...so I have a fascination with them I suppose

    oops...they saw us...*to you* Hi...you didn't just see that...

    Re: Twisters

    Well i think they're kinda cool in a way, maybe not so much the destruction part, but how they apear and then just disapear out into nothing.

    I've always wanted to see one actually, after watching the movie "Twister", just from a save spot

    But i guess that's easy for me to say, now that we don't really have tornados or twisters, where i live... Maybe i would a different opinion if i lived in USA or something, where they are alot.

    Re: Twisters

    I remember when I was 15 or so and my step-dad decided to take me and a couple siblings out to McDonalds in a neighboring town. We were eating inside when the manager comes out and says that there was a tornado alert and that we had to go in the restrooms (because they're the only place in Mickey D's with no glass). So I ended up stuck in a filthy men's room with my step-dad, my brothers and a bunch of random men I didn't know; while my sister was in the women's restroom with a bunch of strangers.

    Looking back at it, it was pretty funny. Hell, it was funny when it was goin' on. I remember seeing a bunch of older guys smokin' in the restroom and I had just told my parents I was a smoker back then; so I lit up too, LOL. My step-dad had this look of disappointment and awe as I lit up. "Take that, man I don't like who's married to my mom," I thought. I remember putting my ear against the door to see if I can hear sounds of destruction. But, alas... Like in Zev's situation, we found out that we were on the wrong side of town. *disappointment*

    Tornado's are not something to take lightly, I've lived through an F5, and let me tell you, that's some scary stuff. That twister blew my house's front door in, hitting my leg and snapping my femur bone like a twig (Anyone who knows human anatomy knows that the femur is the strongest bone in the body).

    Doesn't matter what you think of twisters, if you hear a siren go off, run to a basement, a bottom floor bathroom, a road side ditch, preferably under an overpass, basically anywhere below ground level or a room with strong reinforced piping or structure and get down as low as you can.

    You don't **** with mother nature, because she'll **** with you.

    If i read it right, it's wasn't a F5, it could've become a F5, but it doesn't say it did.

    And every bone has a weak spot, maybe you were just unlucky

    About a month ago there was a warning for a F5 in my town. And there's like nothing around my house. And my parents were out of town and my sister decided to go see a friend. So it was just me and my dog. And I started to freak out.
    So I was super scared and I crawled in my fire place. But he couldn't fit, so then I crawled into my mom's shower where it's made of tile.

    And then I found out it was the wrong county. So me and my huddled curled up in a tiny shower for hours for nothing.

    But I did find out it was a different town not too far away and some people died there...so..

    I agree, don't f**k with mother nature.
