    I've always wanted to see one in person...as long as it stays a safe distance from anyone's home and loved ones

    Closest I have been was in a heavy down pour my car was spun around and I ended up in the ditch, I thought it was just wind and wet roads. I later I learned a small tornado had crossed the highway.

    I've seen one in person before, and I'd be OK if I never saw another one again. Pretty scary experience.

    I have seen 6 anywhere from 1 mile to 10 miles away. 2 when I was driving and 4 from my house. Not all in NE, I have lived in 8 states.
