    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.

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