We had a pretty bad storm where I live yesterday. I got pummeled by golf ball sized hale. I was outside, running from my car to the inside of a nearby theatre and I have a bruised up back because of it. I didn't get to see the tornado, but it touched down in a couple of places around me. The worse was a little north of where I live, and it was pretty badly damaged. It touched down in two other locations close by and did little to no damage.
saw the funnel cloud but said he was unimpressed, so he went to take a nap.
All of the videos on the web of the tornado are of people standing outside and just watching the tornado, or playing disk golf while the tornado is just swirling around.
I have to admit, I want to see a tornado in real life, and would probably watch from a window until it got close and then run screaming in panic.
But the sheer amount of apathy people seem to have around here towards violent and unpredictable weather astounds me. Maybe it's because tornados are a rare thing, or maybe it's because it's Michigan, and the weather changes every 5 minutes. Either way, I get the feeling if the reaction to a tornado with sirens blaring and winds swirling was
I think any major disaster would be met with the same amount of apathy.
