How many of you live in tornadic areas? This is tornado season, for sure, and it's a really volatile time for those of us in "Tornado Alley". I wonder how many of you have experienced a tornado? These storms enthrall me...always have, especially in the years following my move to Missouri when they became a real threat. My fear of the storms changed into a kind of passion for them and I can see myself as one of those nuts who goes chasing after them for fun.

Anyway, I love tornado stories. Have you ever seen/been caught in/video-taped a twister? Tell me your experience!

We have tornadoes in our area from time to time and they scare me. Lately we've had a lot of just really bad thunderstorms and have another one on the way for tonight. Mother Nature has a way of getting her message across.

Right here! We've already had like, 5 tornado warnings this year alone in Middle TN!

I think the worst tornado I've ever been caught in that I remember was when one actually came barrelling through downtown Nashville back in (I think) April of 1999. Very rare and very scary!

Cassay, where do you live? I used to be like that when I was younger--terrified that every gust of wind during a storm was a twister! Ah, the trauma. lol

Mother nature certainly does pack a punch! I think she's telling us to live our lives to the fullest.

Eleni, did you see the Nashville tornado??? Man, I'd love to actually see one... in a safe environment where no one is around to get hurt, of course.
