    I seem to attract them lol.
    1965 coon rapids mn one turned my dads house on the foundation.
    1976 in Hudson wis one sucked the roof off our house .
    2011 I lived in joplin mo for that one and no damage at my house but flattened everything a half mile away .
    Narrowly missed several more in Kansas, Nebraska , Iowa and Illinois while on the road .

    The one that came by the house i had no warning. Satelite TV didn't have the local channels at that time. First i knew was when i heard it. Have seen quite a few, some pretty close. Coming from Orange City IA to Hospers IA one night and there were a couple touching down. Emergency station was giving locations, kept cutting off on side roads, so dark you couldn't see anything. That was a lot of fun. LOL

    I do have a healthy respect for them and these days it's much easier to stay abreast of the weather .
    When I was a kid in Wisconsin I worked for a farmer and he knew when bad weather was on the way .
