I realize how dangerous it is, or
can be, when dealing with nature.
Even though tornados are extremely
devastating, Just to see how they form
and how they move and to respect the
power in real time would be an experience.
I was in a tornado when I was about 5 years
old, but I only got to see it from our
basement. It tore our cherry tree out, destroyed
the pool, and was only a cat 1. I remember the
sky was orange red because my sister and I were
on our way out to ride our bikes and I kept
mentioning to her the sky was weird. Then my
foster mother came running out and told us to get
in the house.
Nature and science have always fascinated me and
my curiosity is always on high gear. Not too long ago,
I drove through a “vortex”-never saw it until I was right
on top of it because it was “clear” except for the leaf which
caught my attention. It covered both lanes of the highway and
the way it was trying to lift my car off the road was
wild. At first when I saw it I was like “oh shit oh shit
oh shit” There was no way I was gonna be able to stop and
avoid it. So I floored it and just prayed I wasn’t gonna
get tossed off the road. After I got through it I was like
”...whoa that was so cool…I should turn around and go
through it again.” Yah I know. You’re questioning my brain
about now lol. My response was purely for scientific
purpose, not for thrills.
