And what is the likelyhood of seeing a tornado anywhere in the DFW area? I know that they had one hit the airport a few years back. Lucky for me I live about a mile from the airport.

As long as your out of the trailer parks you'll be ok.


In all seriousness, its getting close to that time of the year.


Welcome to Texas. If you dont like the weather wait a bit it'll change.

Tornader season starts on March 1st.

You wanna see one? Take 287 north and west to the panhandle area. Heck The Hun Farm is a good place to hang out.

Bullshit.

They said the samething about the area around Waco. "Waco is in a bowl, surrounded by large hills. If a tornader touches down, the hills will prevent it from entering the city." The result was 114 dead, and almost 600 injured.

Also, a tornader isnt a tornader until it hits the ground. If it doesnt hit the ground, its just a funnel cloud.

If you wanna see tornaders, go west young man, go west. Or northwest.

Tornados can happen any time of the year. But the peak season is May and early June. Topography won't save you. They can happen anywhere. FYI, I plan on being up that way sometime in early May.

Tornado's and DFW? Ahhh no.

Your in the wrong part of Texas. I grew up in and around Lubbock, if tornados are what you
want you need to travel west a bit.

actually I do, but just from what I've read/seen on TV.
down in Houston when we hear of a warning we all go to the Texans stadium, because there hasn't been a touchdown there yet.....
