    Tornado!

    So that tornado in Indianola a few minutes ago... so it was MAYBE a mile north of our apartment! We could see the sky swirling hardcore, then I looked over my deck and BAM a tornado on ground!

    One of the most gnarly sights in the world, isn't it? I saw my first, and only, tornado on the ground when I was 8, and I have been dying to see another one ever since.

    I hate Chicago sometimes. You can't even see weather coming here - there's no horizon. And we never get any tornadoes. Lame.

    This thread would be much better if it were titled, "So there I was... Minding my own business..."
