Titch, two years ago we had a tornado that went straight down my street. It uprooted giant oaks and created a big mess for 7/10 of a mile.
I was watching a baseball playoff game at my brother's house and decided to spend the night. When I drove home and turned the corner on the my street it was like it was bombed. There was a lot of cognitive dissonance while I tried to figure out what just happened.
Luckily no homes were severely damaged. I lost a giant ash tree that took me four days to clean up.
