    most people didnt believe it happened cause it wasnt reported by authorities or the newspaper, but heres the proof right here. Saturday i went outside when the sirens were going off and saw it swirling so being the crazy a@# i am i chased it till it came down just east of town.

    I enjoyed storm chasing but with the cost of fuel it seems to be a thing of the past. Even with the storms last month within a 75 mile radius the costs kept me away.
