Ok, so some of us my not have all our teeth, we could be in trouble.

Will tell you what I've done when caught in my 5er and thunderstorm rolled in unexpectedly, hail had started, blocking my retreat to the concrete restrooms. I set quietly at dinning table, DW stands with back up against fridge with arms spread out to both sides. I suggest she go ahead and set down, if table I'm setting at goes, so will the frige!

I feel pretty confident we don't have anyone that fits that description.
Can't you just see the before the camera gets turned on hustle to find the right tornado victim to put on camera? Not him, too many teeth. No she looks too intelligent, but maybe she smells.

What I don't get is people who buy property and live in earthquake zones. There is no warning and no good place on earth to go to be safe. And don't get me started about hurricanes! Give me an EF-3 over one of them anyway.
I live through earthquakes almost daily, we've even had the town destroyed by a Tidal Wave and I still wouldn't want to be as close to a Tornado as I once was years ago.

But I think we should be alright for April.

Cheers !!!!
Once just outside Flint actually on 69 between Lapeer and Port Huron my ex and I were doing about 135 trying to stay in front of one that was destroying the countryside and racing toward us.

Hey maybe we could audition for camera time at the Curiosity.

Boy take a few days off and this thread takes hours of reading.

Been up to my rectum in alligators of late trying to find the swamp plug. DW was named executor for her best friends estate and once she started trying to probate the will the buzzards have been circling. You cannot believe the people demanding to know why they aren't in the will.

My wife could qualify as a saint of patience with her telephone deportment but I lose my cool quite quickly. Tomorrow we have a full day but we will be running away for the weekend to get our heads straight.

Boy have you guys been appreciated for your humour this evening.

THANX

Now can someone give me the coordinates for this Arkansas gathering. DW and I will be trying to plan this into our summer itinerary if all works out. I could use a city name and such.

Herbnbarb, its still there.

Thanks, That's about 7 days each way for us so unless we win the lottery I doubt we'll be able to pull this off. I had a good contest planned for your enjoyment

Like how to pronounce Possum's last name.

We will keep it in mind but are highly doubtful, come on 649

Possum we will miss meeting you guys at the Grand Curiosity but if things change at the last minute we will get you in so no worries there.
I understand bout them buzzards ... Been there done that. What a mess it was and like you my fuse gets real short when someone thinks they can act like a fool. But that's just the way it is for some.... They always think they are entitled. I've been reading and keeping up with the battle going on over an heiress' estate worth $300 M and the family that are distant relatives suing for a large chunk when her handwritten will specifically mentioned they got nothing. Makes for interesting reading.
