When I met Ms Bry’ann in Kuwait and we decided we were a couple we discussed where we were going to live when the jobs dried up overseas.

I mentioned OK and KS, she said no way in hell anywhere where tornados happen. We settled on MT then 2 years later a tornado hit Dillon not all that far from where we live. She would rather deal with 9 month long winters than move down south and risk seeing the sky get all twisted up. She was on Ft Benning when one came through the base, she is scared to death of those things.

rarely a tornada here in NC..straight line winds yes..and a lot of watches every year..i believe the worst was in RED Springs NC many many years ago

RALEIGH, N.C. — The National Weather Service Monday afternoon provided a preliminary estimate for Sunday night’s tornado in Greensboro, saying the twister was a “high-end EF-2.” The tornado had max wind speeds of 135 mph and had a path width of at least 300 yards.

And I looked, and behold a pale horse: and his name that sat on him was Death.
