This isn’t new, but I finally have a forum in which I can bitch about this…Hollywood really has no idea how a thunderstorm or tornado works.
Unless a funnel cloud is on the ground (or nearly) there is actually very little wind, and absolutely no debris flying around. And once it is on the ground and gets close to you, it only lasts a matter of seconds.
Ok, I admit, I’ve never actually been in a tornado, but I have had a couple of close calls. Things are much calmer, and quieter unless the twister is right on top of you, and if that’s the case, you WON’T be taking the time to have deep. meaningful conversations.
