Considering you've been a member for five more years than me...I doubt I know you
I can't believe someone got a picture of this thing. First F4 recorded to rip through the area I grew up in. And we're overdue for one of this size.
Haha that's true. I'm one of those Oldbie lurkers that pops in once every 6 months to a year to say hi. I do recognize Sinrebirth but he wasn't a Mod last time I was here. Wow so much has changed.
Crazy, that's a scary looking tornado.
Its rather hard to find an image of the Joplin Tornado, simply because it was so sudden. That being said, images of the damage abound.
My step grandmother witnessed that tornado. 1946 was an eventful year in Windsor.
Sky Guy, there's youtube with the Jolplin tornado forming
just watching the footage of the beginning, its four smaller tornadoes forming into one. Its scary on how much damage one can cause in a short amount of time.
Believe me...I know...
That is a large and ominous tornado. That destruction is ridiculous.
All this talk of Tornadoes makes me think of this song... named Tornado.
No...this destruction is ridiculous:
That's the highschool?
Indeed. That looks far more ridiculous.
What was left of it
The building has since been torn down...the new one should be up sometime in 2014/2015 I believe. For now its in our Mall
(have pics of that too...will post when I have more time)
I remember seeing streets leveled to the foundations from this thing.
I'm glad we only have to worry about the occasional earthquake in California. I don't think we'd be able to handle a Tornado.
A lot of streets were leveled to their foundations. One does not underestimate the power of an F5 tornado.
I prefer my hurricane force windstorms, earth quakes and floods. Yes come where I live. . .if you dare
So when this become a natural disaster comparison? Just curious.
We don't get earthquakes, we do feel the tremors. but nothing to get excited over. I'm thankful where I live we get enough snow to bury us alive
Edit: I don't know, Sky Guy got overally excited I think.
We were comparing who has the colder winters first then he threw that in the mix. Not sure what that has to do with cold weather though
No, we started comparing summers and I brought up how much my last one sucked. It kind of devolved into the tornado talk after that
Lucky you. I have to travel out of the way to get a snow day in. Which reminds me I haven't gone snowboarding at all this season. I need to remedy that.
It really did start off with cold talk which turned into heated summers then tornado talk
Considering this is the BMC, that's actually rather tame in the 'random' category
How do people win stuff on those big hollywood shin-digs?
The world may never know
Proving my point Mitthy
Did someone say tornadoes?!?
Luckily here in the UK we don't get tornadoes very often, we get a lot of funnels though.
Most extreme weather we get is snow, and apprently there is some heading our way.
