Ok, this is the best as far as closeness, I would probably do something like this, hard to say, I've never actually been IN a tornado before, it kind turns on him, he gets nervous. drinking

Monday night a tornado passed within a couple of miles of our mobile home. While my grown kids ran for storm cellars around their homes we just sat in our living room watching the weather coverage on TV and listening to our scanner. We knew it would be a near miss before it came through. We have a storm cellar at the house nearby we could have used but we never used it. No sense running for cover when you can track it's movements from it's creation by listening to the storm chasers on the scanner. All storm chaser in our area use ham radio to report to the weather bureau and we have them programmed into our scanner.

Last weekend in heading to our family Easter get together I came across obvious evidence of a tornado having hit here within just 4 or 5 miles of the casa. I found huge trees uprooted, the tops of others just ripped off, trees split in half, broken branches everywhere, buildings destroyed and lots of houses with tarps coverin their roofs to keep out more rains before repairs could be made.

The damage stretched over about 3 miles along a lil 2 lane highway and I have no idea what may have occurred past what was visible from the road. Luckily this was in the country and not a highly populated area eye popping

The tally is now up over 500 tornadoes so far this season. I dunno the total death toll so far but in just the ones that hit on 4-27 there were around 300 in that day alone. This is turning out to be the most active tornado season in roughly the past 40yrs eye popping

on the contrary, it is a scientific fact. the only difference is the scientifically proven time line and the liberal time line. the earth has been naturally warming since the ice age.

What about the polar shift? Can that be seen as global warming?
fossil_digger Report This Comment

yes, the natural floating of the poles is normal and is the biggest contributing factor.

One prediction of this shift I saw showed the equator will position itself across the US. Hooray for year round tropical weather.

Thanks for the concern. I'm ok, but the shopping mall that got hit by the tornado I often shop at and the 1 casualty worked for the same company that I work for (although for a different division). It was a bad tornado for NZ - we don't get that many - but nothing compared to those in the southern US states.
