  •  I did too, but didn't know it till later on (6+ / 0-)

    I had dreams about it, but it wasn't until my sister told me that was a memory from when I was very young, about 2 or 3, that I realized I had seen one up close. My mother had me and my brother in a root cellar, while my two older sisters were in a car. My poor mother didn't know what to do, because she knew that if she didn't keep us there we would follow her to the car when she tried to rescue the older girls. Fortunately it all turned out all right.

    These people were very lucky to be on the edge of this tornado, obviously. If it had hit where they were directly, they would likely not have survived. I have to give the guy credit for fast thinking about getting out of the house quickly, before it gave way and fell down.
