Hey, I am a teen really interested in being a storm chaser all my life basically. There is actually a Thunderstorm going through as I am typing this. I just love extream weather. I'm not sure why, but I just do. I have never seen a tornado before, but I have been very close to one before.. There were no warnings or anything. Not even a watch. I knew there was a chance of tornadoes, but it was now 7pm in December, and I was tired. we were on the way home from somewhere, and we just experienced about 3 minutes of very heavy rain, but nothing to extream. later that night, damage was reported, and the next morning the NWS have confirmed that and EF1 Tornado had touched down about 2 miles from where I was at the time, Because it HAD to happen while we stopped to eat. Anyway, I am 13 and I have been throught 2 or 3 Tornado Warnings, But a tornado it's self has NEVER come into my town. I know it will someday, but, for now we are decently safe. sadly, storms like to avoid us. we don't get much action.
