Thread: Tornado Watch

  1. #1

    Default Tornado Watch

    It's always a good feeling when the Tornado sirens go off and you turn the tube on to see a tornado heading directly for you on the weather map.

    It did go directly over me, but it had slowed down to nothing as it went overhead. Just got a lot of rain for 15 minutes.

    Man that is nuts!

    They say this is going to be a bad year for storms but on a side note we could use the rain.

    One good thing about being in Utah a state surrounded by mountains is we dont have worrie to much about tornados.
    The only sirens i hear are from the prison next to my apt.

    Do what makes you feel good. :biggrin:

    Ok, my wife lived in the apartments down the road when she was going to school. We looked at houses all around that area and settled in South Arlington near Mansfield.
