I'm far more than just "another poster".



And Respect the Wind is pretty good as well.

Tornadoes are indeed terrifying. I've always been fascinated by them, though-I used to check out books about tornadoes and other weather phenomenon from our school library when I was a kid. Still like reading up on that stuff.

I wanted to be a storm chaser when I was a kid, so I've always been fascinated by the weather and I've loved Twister since I watched that movie a ton as a kid. If anyone wants to do some reading on weather, I know a great blog: https://extremeplanet.me

His write up on the 2011 Super Outbreak and his one about the Jarrell tornado are great.

The John Cusack thread

I wrote a paper in college using pics from my own chase on a rotating cell in PA. My buddy and I put ourselves in the perfect spot. I remember listening to Eminem as the skies turned black near Altoona.

Caught a very rare NJ tornado near the Pine Barrens where I grew up. Basically saw a red column of dust being carried up about 200 feet. Skidded out my car when I hit an infamous Jersey jug handle.

Let's start chasing nbelcik. YOLO.

Ooh, that sounds neat, Oregoropa.

Sometimes I think storm chasing would be fun, but anytime tornado sirens go off my immediate instinct is, "EEK HIDE!" and I get into total freakout mode so...yeah .

Awesome. Thanks for the link, I'll be checking that out.

There are no tornadoes in Oregon, there was a F2 that hit outside of Salem a couple years ago and a F0 that was close to me in Eugene a year or two ago and that's about it. If I had money to blow on a chase trip in the Great Plains in May, I'd do it

The John Cusack thread

I've seen enough tornadoes to last a life time.
I remember back one day in May 2012 my friend and I were coming back from a workout and had to pull over and shelter under a highway underpass because of tornadoes. That happened to be in Moore, Oklahoma during the most destructive tornadoes in American history. What a day that was. Most horrifying experience of my life.
I just remember hiding in the underpass and trying to get an update on the storm and I thought I read that 200 people had died. So I stood up and said "200 people have just died". Everyone freaked out, people started crying, etc. But upon further inspection I realized that I had misread it. So then a couple minutes later I followed up on that and said "wait never mind, it was 200 horses. my bad". Some people thought it was funny, others not so much.
In conclusion, I don't like tornadoes.

The worst thing to do in a tornado is hide under an overpass. It creates a wind tunnel effect. A couple people died in the 1999 Moore tornado because they were either sucked out of the overpass or pummeled by debris. Meteorologists recommend hiding in a ditch, but I personally recommend trying to get out of the way of it before it hits you. That can be kind of hard if a tornado is rain-wrapped though, that's what made the Joplin tornado so deadly.

Yeah, I didn't think it was a very good idea, but we didn't have a ton of options. We were in a screwed situation because there were so many tornadoes in the area. It was also tough because it was hailing so hard.
We were only under there for about 30 minutes until we went to his Grandma's house because she had a shelter.
This is a picture my friend took as we got to the house.

I momentarily struggled to even remember what he did in that movie and it's my second favorite bad movie ever.

I am terrified of tornadoes. Twister was the first movie my parents watched when we got surround sound. I cried almost the entire time.
