Scary stuff tornadoes are....probably worse for you as it "never happens" there.

When I was about 3 1/2 years old a tornado went through our neighborhood and destroyed about 4 or 5 homes. Luckily ours was not one of them. My dad had us on floor with blanket covering us. My mom was about 7 or 8 months pregnant with my brother at the time. It must have been quite an experience for me to remember it at only 3 1/2 years old.

My friend picked up a Mercury Comet about two months ago and has done quite a bit of tuning to it, decently fast cars if you build them right.

Tornados in Wisconsin! A big outbreak in Illinois and Wi. This is real unusual!

I'm not sure what all this one had, but I do know they bored out a 302 to the max, put in a real good exhaust system, a better tranny, 2 four barrel carbs, some big wheels in the back, and the quietest mufflers available. It was one helluva sleeper. Sadly, my dad threw it away when I was about 4. I wish he would have kept it. Would have been nice to restore.

We had tornadoes in Ohio in November a few years back. I remember going a few miles from my house to help with the clean up. It destroyed about 5 houses and damaged 20 more. It was quite the mess.

how does that suck? we dont get any earth quakes, floods, hurricanes, tornadoes, anything. in my county (i live right in between chicago and milwakee) two sighted tornadoes touched down. it was the first 2 in the history of our city. the only other tornado to touch down within 100 miles was like 40 years ago. and why would kenosha suck? we own americas first veledrome

Actually, if the New Madrid Fault ever lets loose again, you'll feel that even in Kenosha.
