Tornado


If there is one thing I hate about living in Redneckville, it's the damned tornado's.

Since I lived in a trailer in my early years any sort of tornado watch or warning meant time spent in a storm shelter, surrounded by bugs and a radio with the latest news. Some of my worst memories are of rushing out in the wind and rain to the car to rush to my Aunt's storm shelter down the road. We'd all mush into the enclosed area underground as the adults would walk to the door and look around outside. I always kept waiting to see a tornado up close but fortunately it never happened.

Last night we got lucky but others didn't fare so well. I'm watching the news now and if the destruction isn't bad enough, the lives lost are. Mother nature can be a evil bitch.
