Oh yes, I know the wrath that midwestern weather can bring down upon you. Thankfully, I was never in a tornado (even though they were all around where I lived, just never in my town until after I moved out). The thing I miss most living out here in western Washington, though, is a good thuderstorm. Man... It hardly ever rains hard here, it's sort of a constant drizzle when it comes. It can get very annoying.
