What makes it interesting is that OP's mom is a fucking paranoid nut who should stop flushing her meds down the toilet. I'm serious, this is just disturbing behavior.

#31. I don't quite understand what you're asking, but people hide underground during tornadoes to protect them from debris and being blown away by the winds. If she was crazy and stopped taking her meds, she could have been hallucinating and thus lead her to freak out and try to protect everyone. *flies away*

Yeah I live in Kentucky and I'm pretty sure there weren't any severe storms yesterday. Just some rain- not even bad enough to cancel a bike ride.

A couple days ago there was a bad storm that caused a tornado a little north of Evansville Indiana. I'm pretty sure it was on Tuesday. I don't think it caused a lot of damage though

72-I live in Fort Wayne. I was in Target when the storm hit and they made all of the customers take shelter in the back stock room until the storm was over because of the tornadoes. So yes there were bad storms on Indiana

I always thought that tornado season lasted from March to around the end of June, at the latest, and I live in Oklahoma. Tornadoes are part of spring weather, and the actual season for them is spring, like when you have all the tornado chaser shows(storm chasers). That's when you have the big storms and crazy weather on the plains. So yeah, I would say tornado season is over, though rare ones can occur any time throughout the year, particularly when it is warm- hot outside, along with humidity. Tornadoes form under specific conditions, and if late August it happens to be hot and humid with a cold front moving in, and just the right amount of energy in the air, you can have yourself a tornado. But yeah, we aren't in "tornado season" right now, where you have the specific news for storm watchers and other things designated to early warnings for severe weather.

there is no set season where tornadoes cannot happen. they are more frequent during the late spring/summer because of the constant changing temperature during the former, and the intense heat during the latter. they happen more often in some places than others; for example, the Midwest is considered Tornado Alley because it's generally where the warm fronts and cold fronts collide, and is also generally pretty flat. Also, there have been times where tornadoes occur in the winter; just this past December, there were reports of several tornadoes throughout the country due to the unseasonably warm weather.

The central plains are called Tornado Alley because you have the dry air coming from the West, and humid air coming from the East. You have the hot air coming from the South, and the cold air coming from the North. That's why it's so fucking windy. And because its so flat that nothing stops the winds. And when those airs collide they make conditions ripe for tornados. Although there is no set season for when they can't happen, there is a set season for when they are extremely likely and when meteorologists are working their butts off to warn people early of severe weather.

I live in Missouri and we had tornado warnings and alerts last night. In Missouri, Illinois, and Indiana tornados occur frequently throughout the spring, summer, and early fall.

We've had warnings in Minnesota throughout July, but then again we've had the weirdest weather throughout the whole year. Our snowy season ended in late January.

yes, it did say that she broke into the bathroom. you were almost smart there.

the possibility of that happening again is very unlikely.

HAHA Fml, op. That sucks so bad.

I have an intense fear of tornadoes as well. Not to mention it was for your safety, if there even actually was a tornado. Better to be safe than sorry.

Reply
  MichellinMan  |  20

yes but her mom dragged her off the fucking toilet while she was changing a tampons and into the basement, junk showing. that's being more of a crazy fucking mother than safe.

Yeah, but what if that tornado was less than a mile away? I wouldn't wanna get sucked up with my hand shoved up my crotch. If there was just a tornado warning and no visible sign of one, the mother should have at least let her finish before dragging her out but we don't know the whole story.

Unless she wanted to walk out of the bathroom with bloody hands then it would add a little bit of time!

#27. Tornado warnings mean that you must seek shelter immediately and that a tornado funnel is currently touching the ground. The sirens go off. A tornado watch is issued when conditions are ripe for a tornado, and they're searching the skies for any funnels that may form or may be forming.

You're from new jersey, I really don't think you'll need to be worrying about tornadoes anytime soon. Seeing as how I'm from PA I can kind of back that up lol

I've never experienced one in real life, which is why I'm glad I live in a state that doesn't get them often. But having seen the movie Twister since I was extremely young, I've always had a fear of them.

It would have been nice had mom at least let her daughter pull her pants up so she didn't flash everyone. And I'm willing to bet that there wasn't a tornado in sight, just tornado *warning* in which case, Chickenshit Mom could have let OP finish changing her tampon before she went to the basement.

I live in new jersey but I'm from the Midwest and every time I go out there I pray to see one. I might have more of an obsession than a fear I also love hurricanes wind storms and severely dangerous lightning

43, changing a tampon does not include, at any point in time, ever, having blood on your hands. I would know, as a woman who uses them (as well as having changed mine about an hour ago). also, when you commented as #57, I'd like to point out that we don't care.

Reply

I was thinking the same thing- as if her mom threw her over her shoulder and had her in the basement in moments. As if op couldn't just say, "Mom, let me change my mfing tampon first," before her mom could make it that far

A mother in a time of need, specially when she thinks she is saving her child from harm ways doubles her strength. It's called adrenaline, basically a mom can become wonder woman lol.
