Since it's tornado season, let's write about these swirling storms. We've already had our share of tornado warnings in the Midwest—I was in the local YMCA pool when the sirens went off and had to go to the basement to wait out the storm in my bathing suit. Regardless of how shivering and awkward I felt, this isn't the worst thing that can happen during a tornado. Don't forget that you should always be prepared and have a safety plan in place if you live in area where a major storm can occur.
