Just a thought


Unfortunately some Americans died today from a series of tornados. Most of us that live in “Tornado Alley” have occasionally moved into a safer room of our homes upon hearing the warnings. I have never  been told to do so but I see no real harm the next time that happens in grabbing my helmet (motorcycle, bicycle, etc.). Motorcycle helmets are designed for severe impacts and would probably help the most but bicycle helmets may give some protection from flying or falling timbers, etc. I have experienced two tornadoes in my life time and although they were not extremely terrifying I do respect their power. During the strongest one I experienced I was close to Grissom Air Force Base and the 100 ton hanger doors were curled into the hangers like putty and as I remember those winds were only 80 + miles per hour.
