    That was amazing. I've always wanted to see a tornado but not one that did a lot of damage or hurt anyone. I would have been nervous as close as they were. I wonder how close you could be in a car and still be pretty safe.

    I wondered that too. I would probably imagine outside of the debris range would be ok.. The last thing you want is a roof to all of a sudden fall on top of your car or a 2x4 to come shooting through a window.

    Haven't you seen Twister? You can pull the truck within about 15 feet of the tornado to get Dorothy set up.

    Unless you are Jonas that stupid Nightcrawler. He couldnt do anything. Hes not in it for the science, hes in it for the money.

    Come to think of it, I'm pretty sure he told us exactly how close not to get.

    You're right! And if a house lands in front of you, you can just drive right through it!

    Re: So you wanna chase tornadoes, huh?

    I have seen one and it wasn't even on purpose. I could have seen another one last year but was lazy and didn't drive a half mile to see it.

    That being said those guys are complete IDIOTS!!!
