Plows through whatever is in its path. Killer of life,  animals, and destroys property!

For a long time I have had what some would call a weird fascination. I’m fascinated with tornadoes!  Last May I watched as the 2 F5’s hit Oklahoma. Not able to take my eyes from the TV screen, I was mesmerized as I watched in horror as the enormous twister got bigger and took aim on the city. I kept saying aloud, God be with them. Please be with them. Never in my life have I seen such horrific pictures and total destruction for miles.

There is one thing I don’t understand. Some are black as sin and darker than night while some others are white. I haven’t figured out an answer for this. And, another thing, when tornadoes are measured, I assume it’s from the widest point on each side.

I remember one picture in particular where the main part of the tornado was spinning widely and there were about 3 vortices (vortexes)spinning around it. One was spinning so fast and it was so ragged, I wasn’t sure what was going to happen!

I think I can see what the storm chasers see in tornadoes. Some have an incredible beauty about them which makes them that much more deadly. You get caught up in looking at them and may not get away quickly enough. I guess it’s their beauty that has named them awesome and deadly.

I cannot stop my article without saying a word about the storm chasers. Guys, it’s a dangerous job ya’ll do to give the rest of us a heads up on what’s happening. We thank you, one and all, and, may God bless you and keep you safe, always.
