When I moved from the deeper south, to where I live now I thought I was out of Tornado Alley... but no... We have had 4 Tornadoes hit close to us, and last year we had our Barn with apartment, on one of our farms blown away. I couldn't believe the destruction. There were 6x6 post that were twisted off and 2x4's not broken, stuck in the ground in rows ,like we had planted them. The garage doors looked like crumpled up pieces of paper. Now, we are trying to figure out where to put a storm shelter. Too many close calls.
