CNN: Chimp and Pickles taken to a shelter during a tornado warning.
How stupid do you have to be to have the kind of money they have and build a house in Texas without a basement or other fortified area?

2. The Imperial Hog Farm is a prop.
It will probably be disposed of as soon as Little Boots tires of it being used for photo ops. I don't think his "tough cowboy" act is cutting it with the proles anymore.

Paraguay.

3. Surely they must have some sort of shelter on the pig farm--a bunker maybe.
I would think that the Secret Service would require it.

8. One would think. Evidently, they were taken by armored vehicle to a nearby shelter.
They never went into the shelter, but remained in the vehicle, ready to dart inside--in the event of a tornado sighting, I suppose.

6. Well to be fair they did have to build the house in a hurry
lest they get caught as "rich elitists" from Conneticut rather than the "down home folks" from Texas. Had to get it done before the 2000 elections.

12. Few basements..
...in Texas.

Although a protected room would make sense. Our "room" is our walkin closet off the master bedroom.
