4. Not uncommon in Florida or other parts of the South.

When warm air meets with cold fronts, you typically see this type of weather.

I'll never forget the night of the 1998 tornado outbreaks in Central Florida. I was in college at that time, and the air that night just felt trecherous.

9. I lived in Alabama twice, hate that weather. You are right about the air, always feels 'off'. Thanks

Tommy!

Glad I wasn't in that 1998 storm. My parents home was taken in the 1985 northern outbreak, bad day.

10. I just remember the wind whipping around every which way.

Thankfully, there were no tornados in the immediate vicinity around me, although one hit that night about 15 miles away.

I do remember I was standing around outside with some of my fellow dorm mates that night and one of them said they felt their ears pop, so we all raced back into the dorm common area and hunkered down for about 15 minutes.

14. Nasty weather! I remember the dead silence after the hail when one went over us in AL.

I lived in an old 100 sharecropper's house then, figured if it had stood that long it would be alright, and it was. It still scared the holy bejesus out of me!

I'd rather have a good old-fashioned blizzard, than a tornado any day of the week.

2. Any idea exactly what part of the County?

A warning typically means a tornado or funnel cloud has already been spotted.

11. Either it has been spotted or there is movement on the radar that says it is...

trying to form. Thanks to Doppler Systems, people can get a warning before the actual tornado or funnel cloud is spotted.

Mind you, due to warnings going out before a spotter sighting, many warnings have gone out and no tornado. This has made many in high tornado prone areas not paying attention to warnings as they should. But one must keep in mind that the movement has been seen and many do not have time to take cover in time if you use spotters only.

So if a Tornado Warning is issued in your area, do NOT ignore it due to other times that proved to be nothing. You never know when that one that is all that and a bag of chips will decide to pay your town a visit.

13. Allen West farted and burped at the same time?

That would create quite a vortex.
