Shit, that's the 3rd one I've survived. As far as natural disasters go, a hurricane is about all I have left to experience.

Albie, if you are going to talk about surviving one, you need to do it coming out of this like my 2 kids & I did.

We had one hit our place in Hope, we had taken refuge in the shelter, damn tornado actually hit our well house, hopped over the house then hit our barn. Couldn't believe how lucky that was!

Cool2 twisters

Growing up in OK, I have had a few "close encounters" myself.

In the mid-seventies we had twin twisters travel north to south along Peoria and Lewis, in Tulsa. Our house was halfway between the two.
Dad and I were standing on the front porch watching them until they got very close.

When I say that's about the only natural disaster I haven't experienced, I was wasn't saying that longingly.

C'mon Albie. A Hurricane Party is a thing of beauty. Sitting on the back porch drinking beerz while 3 million gallons of water rush by ya horizontally.

I hear ya Charlie. A hurricane really ain't much fun, but I'll take one of those over a tornado anytime.

Yeah, it's good times. Checked the weather for the coast this morning. 70 degrees. YES! We're meeting lots of good folks everywhere we go too and that certainly adds. Oh, great Mexican food too. Love it.
