    Keep your head low buddy!

    You can do what the developer did at my ex wife's house in Texas. They moved the "Caution: Tornado Alley" signs out of her development, and placed them into the ground just on the other side of the street. I didn't know them tornadoes could read so well.

    I hope the storm is not as bad as the previous one. Where would you go if you had a tornado heading your way?

    A good place for him to go would be my place because we basically don't have tornadoes here.

    It might be a good idea to dig a storm shelter if you live in tornado alley.:rolleyes:
    If you can't dig a storm shelter then dig a hole in your foundation and build walls that are anchored to the new foundation with a free standing roof / ceiling that is not tied into the structure of your home. It can replace a closet but you don't want to tie it into the structure of the home that might be destroyed by a tornado. That little room has a better chance of staying in one piece and saving your life.

    I've had people at the gas station ask if it was always this windy or if a storm was blowing in. It was only blowing 35mph or so. Wasn't bad at all...

    I saw a comment you made recently that said something about paying your rent. That does mean you have the possibility of relocating to any place you choose.
