    Oh, is that all. As dramatic as the thread title reads, I was fearing the arrival of an even more ominous visitor :eek:

    It really doesn't get much more Texas than standing around watching a tornado go by in the distance. Used to do it all the time when I was a kid...

    My fourth-grade teacher was from Kansas, said tornadoes back in the early 20th century were a way of life, but she told us about the time she slept through a tornado. It removed her family home and barn, except the corner of the house where the couch was...where my teacher was asleep.

    It seems, she watched The Wizard of Oz one time too many. And I thought I was writing tall tales, around here

    And here I was thinking " as long as it obeys the traffic laws".

    Tall tale or not, she told that story again, to my dad, at a parent's night at school, and I think he believed her.

    Wow... I’ve never seen a tornado before...that looks serious. Did you take that picture?! (The one of the tornado...) I thought this was gonna be some politically charged thread about a caravan

    Mike, is this a real photo!? Or is it a gag?

    You keep them minivans out of here. I don't care if it's a Caravan or an Aerostar or an Odyssey. This is a Station Wagon forum!

    Naw that's not a real pic. Mike would never have the windows and hood open with all that dust and stuff blowing around. :rolleyes:

    He wouldn't even have the original wheels on it. Otherwise, they would catch wind like sails on the Mayflower. He showed no fear, because of knowing that there's a higher chance of winning a lottery jackpot than for a tornado to start obeying local traffic legislation, Ma'am

    I wonder how 1tireman likes having this in his backyard. An "Act of God" vacuum cleaner filmed a flagrante in his hometown. The only thing not pretty about the picture is the absence of vintage motor vehicles:

    Notice, when they show bad weather it's always in an upper class neighborhood? That's why we've always lived down by the river on the far side of the tracks.

    As for tornado stories, there's an area just south of us here in central Illinois that's had it's fair share of small tornados. Good friends had several of those miniature horses at their farm. Two of those tiny horses were found unhurt like ten miles away after a tornado passed.
    Another time, we saw hay straws stuck in telephone poles and a complete old Hemi engine miles from where I'd see the old car parked in northern Illinois.
    I've actually driven a semi down old rt 66 while watching a tornado beside me in a corn field...... No, this was not a small dust devil.
    While in high school, outside for PE, we watched a tornado that eventually wiped out much of the small town less than ten miles south.

    I'll bet, you had hoped it would wipe out your high school, so that you could sleep in mornings, until they built you a new one
    In that case, I can't wait for the next tornado, bacause of what might land in my garden
