I get asked all the time.. Don't you want to go to ...(fill in the blank)... why not?
Its like they're looking at me like I have 2 heads if I say no...

Honestly, (with some exceptions), I like to be home and do what I do. Is something wrong with that??

Yes Bill, a very close call was in Joplin Missouri in 2011, We were in heavy traffic and in a rain wrapped tornado, was behind us less then a quarter mile, which killed unfortunately 161 people. As we had computer data we knew what was going on. Tried to warn local people as well but we also had to get out to a safe zone.

Link to a YouTube video I made, while in Joplin, most of the buildings were destroyed 30 seconds after us moving and many people in cars in the video may have been killed, we will never know.

Tornadoes are best to watch in Kansas, as the roads are pretty good, land is flat for good observation.
