Talk about windy weather . . .

The United States gets a LOT of tornadoes. According to the National Weather Service’s Storm Prediction Center, our neighbours get about 1300 a year. That’s an insane amount of bad weather. Compare that to Canada which gets about just 80 a year.

This map shows the tracks of the tornadoes that have crossed the United States over the past 50 years. You can definitely see where “Tornado Alley” runs. I find tornadoes fascinating and want to chase them someday, but with people who know what they’re doing. I don’t want to find myself watching as one heads towards me, because I’m pretty sure I’d lose control over my bodily functions. Just sayin’.
