I know from personal experience how terrifying tornados can be. In fourth grade, my parents and I huddled in a bathroom as one twisted the tops of pine trees that towered above my house. It was about as close as you can get without actual damage, injury or loss.

but these tornado pictures are simply beautiful. What a lovely, terrible thing His creation can be.
