  1. Oh that would be so scary. Spectacular but very scary picture. Mother Nature has been very angry with us lately. Perfect haiku.

    1. JoJo, first hand yes. When I was in college, I drove home and ran right into one. It chased me for a while and scared the living be Jesus out of me. I was very fortunate that it stayed along side the road and didn't come over and pick up my car and kill me. I got away by the skin of my ass. I had some other close calls but never been as directly in one like that trip home from college. Thank you for stopping by and for your sweet comments! ♥

    2. WOW! You saw one!!!! I would like to get a picture of one....but they scare me to death too!!!! Ever since the 1974 Xenia super outbreak. Not that we get them here, but still!

    3. JoJo, yep. I have actually seen two at close range. The one I described above and one while on vacation to the Wisconsin Dells. We were touring a wax museum and the power went out. Everyone else took cover. My mom, dad, and I went out to the street and watched the tornado taking stuff out a few blocks away. It was something to see and it was mesmerizing. Fortunately before it blew us back to start it lifted off the ground and disappeared.

  4. Good haiku on something scary. Two years ago we were in the middle of a very bad cyclone, I can never forget that experience.

  8. You really are very good at haikus - Mother Nature's wrath couldn't be better embodied than by a tornado. I've never experienced one, but I love photos of tornados, so dramatic and dark.

    1. Shilpa, we get more than our share of them. I currently live in an area that was leveled by a huge tornado in the 60's. We have had a few close brushes with them since. Both of the tornadoes I was in were actually not where I live. One was when I was driving home from college and the other was when my family and I were on vacation.

  27. It's easy for me to say I'm fascinated by tornadoes and devastating storms and all that, since I don't usually get any of that extreme weather action around here, so am never in danger from it! But since it's so easy for me, I'm going to keep saying it. :) I love storms.
