As a child I experienced to many of these storms and I'm glad that my children won't face them where I live today.

The Storm

Looking out my window I see the rain dancing outside
The wind is gaining speed and the trees sway side to side
Lightning is flashing as the thunder rolls across the sky
Hail is falling hard as the roar of a monster comes in July

The cellar door is locked but the sound we can still hear
With my ears popping inside my pillow I shiver in fear
Debris pounds the cellar doors like an animal wanting in
I can feel the hair standing straight up on top of my skin

It’s ripping and shredding with its winds full of teeth
I feel the vibration of its wrath in the ground beneath
My knees start shaking as the tears soak my blue jeans
Every year in tornado alley it’s the same old routine

And just like that the storm disappears into the night
An F-4 killer that destroyed everything with its might
As my Dad pushes open the cellar door quiet fills the air
And the smell of all the destruction is waiting out there

Toto, I've a feeling we're not in Kansas anymore

The wizard of oz

Nice one.

I am glad I never have had to experience something like that.

I have seen small ones but never something even close to an F4

Though the movieTwister makes tornado hunting so much fun, I won't try to meddle with the forces of nature.

Thanks Grey Magic
I was very young at the time and it was scary. I was always safe thanks to my parents and the shelter we took from them. It's a memory that sticks to you like glue and reminds you about the forces of nature. Every once in a while we'll get some windy thunderstorms and tornado warnings/watches and it always makes me nervous even though I like thunderstorms.

I had to evacuate as a kid because there was a flood warning.

Gladly nothing happened or the house I lived in would be in 4 meter deep water.

I won't move back to that place either.
