    Last night's WiLD weather spawned an UNreal number of tornadoes in the Southeast. Many people were killed and many more are still unaccounted for, apparently.

    What's SCARY is that 40 are apparently missing in Columbus, MS...a small city approximately 2 hours from me...a city where MY DAUGHTER had attended a DC Talk concert in which her boyfriend's band had opened for.

    Less than 18 hours had transpired from the time she left Columbus and the tornado hit. TOO DAMN CLOSE.....

    I know what you mean, I was out in it last night. On one end of Bardstown Road, a tornado touched down... I'm at the other end of the street. I was doing whatever I could to get home.

      Ya know, Shooter, I think I'm nuts...Really.
      The storm hit here in Southern Illinois Saturday night, I was out with friends at a hunting camp party. I love storms, just not like that.

      We were all sitting around the camp fire when the wind took a violent turn, we're in the middle of the woods no less. Luckily, no trees fell, no damage was done but...I've been through tornadoes before. Being in the forest at that time is the dumbest thing I can think of. Mother nature has no feelings, she's just nature.

      I'm glad your daughter is okay. Many folks are not today. My thoughts go out to those who lost loved ones this weekend, over 24 at last count?? Maybe more.

          It was great, actually! BUT, after I stop to think, we were all pretty toasted, four wheeling, eating steaks, drinking beer...

          When that wind hit we were just looking at the black sky through the trees feeling rather...UUMMM... bare *** naked.

          Not a good feeling.

            BTDT...first campout with my current campout buddies: It was February 1998. Temp upon arrival(1300HRS) was 68*. OUT OF NOWHERE, we found ourselves under tornado WARNINGS. The funnel cloud passed OVER our campout. Temps by 0200 were in the upper 20s.

            Ever since then, at least 1-2 campouts per year are similar.

              And that's why I said I'm nuts. Mother nature thrills me, I love storms. I just want to know my butt's going to be safe if one REALLY hits.

              I guess that's somewhat like a cop who loves his job, likes the thrill of the chase, but wants to know HIS rear is safe when the shiznit is really hittin' the fan. [Wink]

                I liked storms too and the thrill but it changed about 10 years ago when I was working in the middle of a hurricane and seen a tornado pick up and old Drive Inn Movie Screen about 100 ft wide and carry it about two blocks intact then drop it. I could have not been more than 150 ft away. It was something I never want to see again. Incrediable. Then things got worst with a flash flood and I had to swim to the top of a bank. So much for me and Mother Nature. She Wins. [Wink]
