I'm a Ham Radio operator and have taken the weather safety class that the government gives Hams. I live in NJ and, although they are rare, we have had tornadoes here. When I took the class I was surprised to learn that every single state in the US has a history of tornadoes. The only difference is that they are rare in most states. When I lived in New Mexico we had what we called 'dust devils'. They are small (10-15 foot tall) very brief mini tornadoes. They blow across the yard and disappear. I've seen tornadoes while traveling cross country by car and I know that green sky you mentioned. That alone is enough to strike fear in your heart! I give you all credit for having the courage to live in tornado alley and I offer my prayers for your safety. God bless!
My son lives in Iowa and I was thinking of moving there but not anymore, they get alot of them, one day the tornado siren went off twice when he was at work and 4 times where his wife was home alone, thats entirely too much in one day for me! Its bad enough here but we dont' get them like Iowa does, use to live in Az and they never got them now they do.
I live in SD and yes we are part of torando alley, Iowa is where my son lives and they get them really bad and I know Kansas and Oklahoma do and so forth, this years seems to be starting early and its going to last till september, the sky gets that green yellow look. I pray no one gets hurt or anything during tornado season this year, I hate it when things go back, their scarey enough but when you hear the freight train sound you really get fearful.
