Tragedy blows through your life like a tornado, uprooting everything, creating chaos. You wait for the dust to settle, and then you choose. You can live in the wreckage and pretend it's still the mansion you remember. Or you can crawl from the rubble and slowly rebuild. Because after disaster strikes, the important thing is that you move on. But if you're like me, you just keep chasing the storm.Rob Thomas Tornado's Sayings By Rob Thomas: Tragedy blows through your life like a tornado, uprooting everything, creating chaos. You wait for
The only thing more destructive than a tornado is a family.Reynolds Price Tornado's Sayings By Reynolds Price: The only thing more destructive than a tornado is a family.
As a little girl I always expected that one day adventure would happen to me - someday a tornado would whisk me away to Oz, or I'd fall down a rabbit hole, or David Bowie would kidnap me and take me to his labyrinth where he'd sing me songs and feed me magic peaches. (I still sorta wish David Bowie would kidnap me, but that's beside the point.) As I get older, I realize you have to make adventure happen for yourself. I hope this cookbook helps you, dear reader, to make some tasty adventures for yourself - and maybe throw some really awesome LARP parties.Cassandra Reeder Tornado's Sayings By Cassandra Reeder: As a little girl I always expected that one day adventure would happen to me
My sudden, unforeseen capitulation had knocked me backward, and I had nothing to hold on to.

Grandfather used to call the rain 'the erotic ritual between heaven and Earth.' The rain represented the seeds sown in the Earth's womb by heaven, her roaring husband, to further life. Rainy encounters between heaven and Earth were sexual love on a cosmic scale. All of nature became involved. Clouds, heaven's body, were titillated by the storm. In turn, heaven caressed the Earth with heavy winds, which rushed toward their erotic climax, the tornado. The grasses that pop out of the Earth's warm center shortly after the rain are called the numberless children of Earth who will serve humankind's need for nourishment. The rainy season is the season of life. Yes, it had rained the night before.Malidoma Patrice Some Tornado's Sayings By Malidoma Patrice Some: Grandfather used to call the rain 'the erotic ritual between heaven and Earth.' The rain
Me? Rebuild" I shook my head."First off, I don't know anything about construction or reconstruction. And second, have you been down there? Have you seen it? So many people haven't moved back or rebuilt, and I totally get it. Why invest all that time and money when each hurricane season brings a new threat?"
Aimee regarded me with a steady blue gaze. "Why build skyscrapers in San Francisco that might be knocked down by an earthquake? Or why build farms in Kansas and Oklahoma that might get blown away by a tornado?" She snorted, and it seemed so uncharacteristic for the elegant old woman that I almost laughed. "Where did they want us to go, anyway? I figure if we're still breathing, then we're meant to keep going. So we rebuild. We start over. It's just what we do.

If you're listening to this, congratulations! You survived Doomsday.
I'd like to apologize straightaway for any inconvenience the end of the world may have caused you.

Jake wasn't about to be seduced like some schoolgirl. Not by a man who went by the unlikely name of Tornado, not by anyone.

Oh, honey," she says when I'm done with my wallowing, "it's like my grandma used to say: Just when you think life's got you in a gutter, a tornado will come along and destroy your house."

I am not cheered up.

These shoes look like they're straight out of 'The Wizard of Oz,' but since I'm like the tornado that blew you into Oz, I guess you can wear Dorothy's red slippers.

Jenna, to her credit, knew when to just roll with it. "Okay, then."
"The more pressing question right now is, why are we back at Hex Hall?"
Jenna looked around, taking in the unnatural fog, the dilapidated (well, more dilapidated) feel of the house. "Something tells me it's not for a class ruinion."
"Did you get pulled through some kind of magic tornado, too?" I asked her.
"No, I flew in here as a bat. It's a new thing I learned from Byron."
"Ha ha," I said, swatting at her arm.
Rachel Hawkins Tornado's Sayings By Rachel Hawkins: It is a very long story, and I promise I'll spill all later. Condensed version:
You know how it feels right before a tornado hits? I mean when the sky's still clear, but the wind's starting to cool off and change direction. You know something's coming, but you don't always know what. That's how things feel to me right now. -Zoey RedbirdP.C. Cast Tornado's Sayings By P.C. Cast: You know how it feels right before a tornado hits? I mean when the sky's
I do not use airplanes. They strike me as unsporting. You can have an automobile accident-and survive. You can be on a sinking ship-and survive. You can be in an earthquake, fire, volcanic eruption, tornado, what you will-and survive. But if your plane crashes, you do not survive. And I say the heck with it.Isaac Asimov Tornado's Sayings By Isaac Asimov: I do not use airplanes. They strike me as unsporting. You can have an automobile
The West was not dull, it was stupendously dull, and when not dull it was murderous. A man could get killed without realizing it.

Connell Tornado's Sayings By Evan S. Connell: The West was not dull, it was stupendously dull, and when not dull it was

Outside the rain began to pour in sheets, and the wind howled . Giant pieces of hail began to pelt the building - banging off the skylights so hard that Simpson worried the glass might shatter. Then, as it had earlier in the day, the wind briefly let up. It was then Simpson heard a sound she had dreaded - a sound she couldn't believe she was actually hearing. It was 2: 40 P.M. and the tornado sirens in Moore started to wail.Holly Bailey Tornado's Sayings By Holly Bailey: Outside the rain began to pour in sheets, and the wind howled . Giant pieces

The world might be sunny-side up today.
The big ball of yellow might be spilling into the clouds, runny and yolky and blurring into the bluest sky, bright with cold hope and false promises about fond memories, real families, hearty breakfasts, stacks of pancakes drizzled in maple syrup sitting on a plate in a world that doesn't exist anymore.
Or maybe not.
Maybe it's dark and wet today, whistling wind so sharp it stings the skin off the knuckles of grown men. Maybe it's snowing, maybe it's raining, I don't know maybe it's freezing it's hailing it's a hurricane slip slipping into a tornado and the earth is quaking apart to make room for our mistakes.
Tahereh Mafi Tornado's Sayings By Tahereh Mafi: The world might be sunny-side up today.The big ball of yellow might be spilling into

It could be like a tornado

In that moment, that exact moment, I knew Fin Hunter was going to change my life forever. I didn't know if it would be better or worse when he was done, I just knew that he was blowing through everything I thought I wanted and needed like a tornado of change and I was helpless to stop it.
I was helpless against him.
Rachel Higginson Tornado's Sayings By Rachel Higginson: In that moment, that exact moment, I knew Fin Hunter was going to change my
then there was the Brownie camera in his bedroom. The developed film revealed a blurry shot he never recalled taking. In the dark image protruded boards - part of a wall, maybe a rafter. Paul wondered if a tornado could take a picture of itself. Now that was an unsettling thought.Richard Bedard Tornado's Sayings By Richard Bedard: then there was the Brownie camera in his bedroom. The developed film revealed a blurry
The flapping of a single butterfly's wing today produces a tiny change in the state of the atmosphere. Over a period of time, what the atmosphere actually does diverges from what it would have done. So, in a month's time, a tornado that would have devastated the Indonesian coast doesn't happen. Or maybe one that wasn't going to happen, does.Ian Stewart Tornado's Sayings By Ian Stewart: The flapping of a single butterfly's wing today produces a tiny change in the state

What do you do for fun in this town?
Well, you know. Wash dishes. Wipe up baby drool, put a new quart of oil in him once in a while. Watch the Weather Channel to see if any of the neighbors have been blown away by a tornado. Eat too much cheese and get cheese farts.
Keeps you busy, huh?
Nick Wilgus Tornado's Sayings By Nick Wilgus: What do you do for fun in this town?Well, you know. Wash dishes. Wipe up
I'm sorry, Shepley," I called after him.
He froze and wheeled around, with the face of a man that had reached his limit. "I wish you and Travis would just get your shit together! You're a goddamn tornado! When you're happy, it's love and peace and butterflies. When you're pissed, you take the whole fucking world down with you!

And those fingers just keep on wagging until some gay teenager hangs himself because he can't fight the fucking tornado of hatred whirling around his head, and that ill wind keeps blowing, until over in Kenya, some man lifts a knife and cuts out a young girl's clitoris? It's all connected, Dale.Eden Connor Tornado's Sayings By Eden Connor: And those fingers just keep on wagging until some gay teenager hangs himself because he

My father was gone. I went up to his suite, not to see him, but to figure out if he had been gone or left in a hurry. It looked like a tornado had visited so I assume he started packing as soon as he heard I was coming. I spit in his open underwear drawer. I know that's nuts but I always try to leave a little something for the asshole on my visits.Monika Basile Tornado's Sayings By Monika Basile: My father was gone. I went up to his suite, not to see him, but

geekmobiles. You should have seen the look on the driver's face when he
realized that the tornado was chasing us.
Jim Butcher Tornado's Sayings By Jim Butcher: I was doing the new Summer Lady a favor, running down a roguestorm sylph. Got
I sat up. Slowly. Between the belly dancing, the fire, the visit to Dave and it's aftermath, the night had taken its toll.
You look like crap!" Cole said merrily. "I like the hair though."
He made a camera frame with his thumbs and forefingers and in the genie voice from Aladdin said, "Now what does this say to me? Homeless women? Tornado victim? Britney Spears? I've got it! Preschooler who's misplaced her gum!"
I regarded him balefully. "You're a morning person, aren't you?"
You make that sound like a bad thing."
Not if you stop talking.

In the eye of the tornado, there's no more high and low, no floor and sky.Francis Alys Tornado's Sayings By Francis Alys: In the eye of the tornado, there's no more high and low, no floor and
There is a tendency for us to minimize the Word of the Lord. Maybe because of its familiarity. "Familiarity breeds contempt," the saying goes. But it may be more accurate to say that "familiarity breeds indifference." The more we hear some warnings, the less seriously we take them - like the tornado warnings in grade school we didn't take seriously. The people of Nineveh heard God's warning. God got their attention, and they were honest with themselves about themselves. One of the reasons we minimize our own sin and rebellion is that we don't take God's Word seriously. Maybe a strong pinch is needed to get us to sit up and pay attention.Kyle Idleman Tornado's Sayings By Kyle Idleman: There is a tendency for us to minimize the Word of the Lord. Maybe because
He shook his head. "You didn't do anything. It'd be like blaming a tornado for ripping through a trailer park. The tornado's just minding its own business. It can't help what it is."
A tornado. Something that destroyed everything in its path. A natural disaster. Me.
Kathleen Peacock Tornado's Sayings By Kathleen Peacock: He shook his head. "You didn't do anything. It'd be like blaming a tornado for
A Tornado knocks a house down, killing the owner, and it's a tragedy. Then you learn a serial killer lived there and the same act becomes a miracle. The truth about what happens to us in this world keeps changing. Always. It never stops. Sometimes not even after death.Marisha Pessl Tornado's Sayings By Marisha Pessl: A Tornado knocks a house down, killing the owner, and it's a tragedy. Then you
But that's depression, isn't it? It makes you selfish. It ... it shrinks your world down. Like you're inside a tornado or something. How are you supposed to care about the things outside that storm? When it's all you can do to just survive it?Rebecca Rogers Maher Tornado's Sayings By Rebecca Rogers Maher: But that's depression, isn't it? It makes you selfish. It ... it shrinks your world
I like cottage cheese. That's why I want to try other dwelling cheeses, too. How about studio apartment cheese? Tent cheese? Mobile home cheese?

Questions spun through Nova's head, creating a tornado of fear with a sucking wind that grew and then funneled out her mouth.

They did a lot of cleaning in their house, which I considered to be a sign of immoral parenting. The job of parents, as I saw it, was to watch television and step into a child's life only when absolutely necessary, like in the event of a tornado or a potential kidnapping.Haven Kimmel Tornado's Sayings By Haven Kimmel: They did a lot of cleaning in their house, which I considered to be a
Being omnipotent and perfectly evil it is intuitively appealing - irresistible, even - to the pedestrian observer to then suspect that The Owner of All Infernal Names occasionally shoves the earth's great rocky plates, unwraps a tsunami, whispers a tornado into existence, or angers a volcanic vent. Perhaps it is out of boredom and a need for entertainment, or a thirst that demands to be satisfied, calamities deliver evil in devastatingly muscular ways, and every terrestrial incentive exists to assume the Creator delivers disaster to satisfy His own perverted needs.John Zande Tornado's Sayings By John Zande: Being omnipotent and perfectly evil it is intuitively appealing - irresistible, even - to the
For dinner Jade microwaves some Stars-n-Flags. They're addictive. They put sugar in the sauce and sugar in the meat nuggets. I think also caffeine. Someone told me the brown streaks in the Flags are caffeine. We have like five bowls each.
After dinner the babies get fussy and Min puts a mush of ice cream and Hershey's syrup in their bottles and we watch The Worst That Could Happen, a half hour computer simulation of tragedies that have never actually occurred but theoretically could. A kid gets hit by a train and flies into a zoo, where he's eaten by wolves. A man cuts his hand off chopping wood and while he's wandering around screaming for help is picked up by a tornado and dropped on a preschool during recess and lands on a pregnant teacher.

There's more than one way between your world and ours.

High school is a pit of despair. It's a swirling tornado of insecurities and there's really nothing good about it. It's at the time where everybody is waking up with different opinions every day, and you're on this learning curve of who you are and who you want to be, and you're comparing yourself with every other male and female around you. There's no sense to it.Kristen Bell Tornado's Sayings By Kristen Bell: High school is a pit of despair. It's a swirling tornado of insecurities and there's
At first, the tornado is nearly invisible. Against the sky, it's white on white.Greg MacGillivray Tornado's Sayings By Greg MacGillivray: At first, the tornado is nearly invisible. Against the sky, it's white on white.
In the spring of her twenty-second year, Sumire fell in love for the first time in her life. An intense love, a veritable tornado sweeping across the plains - flattening everything in its path, tossing things up in the air, ripping them to shreds, crushing them to bits. The tornado's intensity doesn't abate for a second as it blasts across the ocean, laying waste to Angkor Wat, incinerating an Indian jungle, tigers and everything, transforming itself into a Persian desert sandstorm, burying an exotic fortress city under a sea of sand. In short, a love of truly monumental proportions. The person she fell in love with happened to be 17 years older than Sumire. And was married. And, I should add, was a woman. This is where it all began, and where it all ended. Almost.Haruki Murakami Tornado's Sayings By Haruki Murakami: In the spring of her twenty-second year, Sumire fell in love for the first time

One quarter of a mile is, in metric terms, about 400 metres. I believe the world record for a man to cover this distance by use of his legs is about forty something seconds. At that time, I would have bet any amount of money that I would have beaten the world record at that distance as I sprinted like a tornado across the open farmer's fields.Stephen Richards Tornado's Sayings By Stephen Richards: One quarter of a mile is, in metric terms, about 400 metres. I believe the

It could happen any time, tornado,
earthquake, Armageddon. It could happen.

San Narciso was a name; an incident among our climatic records of dreams and what dreams became among our accumulated daylight, a moment's squall-line or tornado's touchdown among the higher, more continental solemnities - storm-systems of group suffering and need, prevailing winds of affluence. There was the true continuity, San Narciso had no boundaries. No one knew yet how to draw them. She had dedicated herself, weeks ago, to making sense of what Inverarity had left behind, never suspecting that the legacy was America.Thomas Pynchon Tornado's Sayings By Thomas Pynchon: San Narciso was a name; an incident among our climatic records of dreams and what
Runners aren't impervious to pain, we're just better at choosing what kind of pain we have to feel.

And when I run, that's exactly what I'm doing.

I'm asserting control over the uncontrollable.

I'm housebreaking a tornado.
The Oatmeal Tornado's Sayings By The Oatmeal: Runners aren't impervious to pain, we're just better at choosing what kind of pain we
Hannah is missing school because one night, her father exiled her and her mother and Allison from the house. This was, obviously, somewhat insane. But it wasn't more insane or cruel than other things he's done, which is not to say he's insane or cruel all the time. He's himself; he can be perfectly pleasant; he's the weather system they live with , and all the behavior, whenever he is around, hinges on his mood. Don't the three of them understand that living with him simply is what it is? To complain or resist would be as useless as complaining about or resisting a tornado.Curtis Sittenfeld Tornado's Sayings By Curtis Sittenfeld: Hannah is missing school because one night, her father exiled her and her mother and
There is a bus station in Henry, but it isn't on Main Street. It's one block north - the town fathers hadn't wanted all the additional traffic. The station lost one-third of its roof to a tornado fifteen years ago. In the same summer, a bottle rocket brought the gift of fire to its restrooms. The damage has never been repaired, but the town council makes sure that the building is painted fresh every other year, and always the color of a swimming pool. There is never graffiti. Vandals would have to drive more than twenty miles to buy the spray paint.

Every once in a long while, a bus creeps into town and eases to a stop beside the mostly roofed, bright aqua station with the charred bathrooms. Henry is always glad to see a bus. Such treats are rare.
N.D. Wilson Tornado's Sayings By N.D. Wilson: There is a bus station in Henry, but it isn't on Main Street. It's one
When they're together, it's like putting a hurricane and a tornado in the same room - you can feel the tension.

In any democratic, civilized - even non-democratic nations, if you are a nation, it means to say that in our case, if there's a hurricane in Louisiana, the people of Vermont are there for them. If there's a tornado in the Midwest, we are there for them. If there's flooding in the East Coast, the people in California are there for us.Bernie Sanders Tornado's Sayings By Bernie Sanders: In any democratic, civilized - even non-democratic nations, if you are a nation, it means
Yes, God?" "I'm sorry about this, Buddy." The voice carried, deep and resounding, like the roar of a tornado. "I know it was all so abrupt, but some things cannot be avoided. Do you have a minute?" Buddy's hand involuntarily squeezed shut against a jagged guitar pick embedded in his bloody palm. This is a joke, right? "No, no, Buddy.Byron Suggs Tornado's Sayings By Byron Suggs: Yes, God?" "I'm sorry about this, Buddy." The voice carried, deep and resounding, like the
Decoding (a child's difficult) behavior is like looking at a rain wrapped tornado crossing the road in front of you. You see the fury of rain, hail, wind and debris, but you have to look real hard to see the driving force behind it.Deborah A. Beasley Tornado's Sayings By Deborah A. Beasley: Decoding (a child's difficult) behavior is like looking at a rain wrapped tornado crossing the

I've been managing Internet businesses since 1999. That's 12 years of being in the tornado, and it's pretty exhausting. I'll be looking at the next challenge, but in terms of operating an Internet business, I've scratched that itch very well.Jeff Jordan Tornado's Sayings By Jeff Jordan: I've been managing Internet businesses since 1999. That's 12 years of being in the tornado,
It was really special for Bass Pro Shops to take Tracker off the side and put Joplin, Missouri on there. They have helped me a lot this past week with putting together ways to raise money to help rebuild Joplin. It's my hometown. It was heartbreaking to see the tornado and see all the people that lost their homes and the ones that lost their lives. It is really special that Johnny let us put that on there. Hopefully we made some people proud tonight.Jamie McMurray Tornado's Sayings By Jamie McMurray: It was really special for Bass Pro Shops to take Tracker off the side and
Close-up violence
it's like a tornado hitting you at 200 mph without warning. It takes all your preparation, fierceness to survive.

After dinner the babies get fussy and Min puts a mush of ice cream and Hershey's syrup in their bottles and we watch The Worst That Could Happen, a half-hour of computer simulations of tragedies that have never actually occurred but theoretically could. A kid gets hit by a train and flies into a zoo, where he's eaten by wolves. A man cuts his hand off chopping wood and while wandering around screaming for help is picked up by a tornado and dropped on a preschool during recess and lands on a pregnant teacher. ("Sea Oak")George Saunders Tornado's Sayings By George Saunders: After dinner the babies get fussy and Min puts a mush of ice cream and
But more important than any of these was the vast, accretive weight of small things, from planes which hadn't crashed to men and women who had come to the correct place at the perfect time and thus founded generations. He saw kisses exchanged in doorways and wallets returned and men who had come to a splitting of the way and had chosen the right fork. He saw a thousand random meetings that weren't random, ten thousand right decisions, a hundred thousand right answers, a million acts of unacknowledged kindness ... For every brick that landed on the ground instead of some little kid's head, for every tornado that missed the trailer park, for every missile that didn't fly, for every hand stayed from violence, there was the Tower.Stephen King Tornado's Sayings By Stephen King: But more important than any of these was the vast, accretive weight of small things,
I've never seen a tornado and I've lived in Oklahoma City basically my whole life. It's not like we're infested with them on a continual basis. But you learn to live with the warnings. And you learn what to do if one is coming your way. And then you cross your fingers and make the best judgments you can.Mick Cornett Tornado's Sayings By Mick Cornett: I've never seen a tornado and I've lived in Oklahoma City basically my whole life.
Yes, an actual full-sized camel. If you find that confusing, just think how the criosphinx must have felt.
Where did the camel come from, you ask? I may have mentioned Walt's collection of amulets. Two of them summoned disgusting camels. I'd
met them before, so I was less than excited when a ton of dromedary flesh flew across my line of sight, plowed into the sphinx, and collapsed on top
of it. The sphinx growled in outrage as it tried to free itself. The camel grunted and farted.
"Hindenburg," I said. Only one camel could possibly fart that badly. "Walt, why in the world - ?"
"Sorry!" he yelled. "Wrong amulet!"
The technique worked, at any rate. The camel wasn't much of a fighter, but it was quite heavy and clumsy. The criosphinx snarled and clawed
at the floor, trying unsuccessfully to push the camel off; but Hindenburg just splayed his legs, made alarmed honking sounds, and let loose gas.
I moved to Walt's side and tried to get my bearings.
Rick Riordan Tornado's Sayings By Rick Riordan: Yes, an actual full-sized camel. If you find that confusing, just think how the criosphinx
We've lost control of this planet somewhere. There's an echo in that kind of tornado situation, where you're powerless facing those phenomena.Francis Alys Tornado's Sayings By Francis Alys: We've lost control of this planet somewhere. There's an echo in that kind of tornado
My art is not limited to the songs I create but also to the reaction it creates. I like to sit back and look at the whole thing as if it's a tornado that I'm controlling. It's creating chaos. When you create chaos, ideas are turned upside down, and everybody looks at things in a different way.Marilyn Manson Tornado's Sayings By Marilyn Manson: My art is not limited to the songs I create but also to the reaction
But I look into her eyes and she looks into my eyes and we recognize it - the excitement of being here, the excitement of being now. And maybe I'm realizing what a part of it she is and maybe she's realizing what a part of it I am, because suddenly we're not crashing as much as we're combining. The chords swirling around us are becoming a tornado, and we are at the center of each other. My wrist touches hers right at the point of our pulses, and I swear I can feel it. That thrum. We are moving to the music and at the same time we are a stillness. I am not losing myself in the barrage. I am finding her. And she is - yes, she is finding me. The crowd is pressing in on us and the bassline is revealing everything and we are two people who are part of a lot more people, and at the same time we're our own part. There isn't loneliness, only this intense twoliness.David Levithan Tornado's Sayings By David Levithan: But I look into her eyes and she looks into my eyes and we recognize
The drone in my ear, it's like the tornado drill in elementary school, the hand-cranked siren that rang mercilessly, all of us hunched over on ourselves, facing the basement walls, heads tucked into our chests. Beth and me wedged tight, jeaned legs pressed against each other. The sounds of our own breathing. Before we all stopped believing a tornado, or anything, could touch us, everMegan Abbott Tornado's Sayings By Megan Abbott: The drone in my ear, it's like the tornado drill in elementary school, the hand-cranked
John Belushi had that aura of someone who doesn't have a lot of time - that's why he was a little frantic about everything. I think Oscar [Acosta] had that too. They were both holding onto the end of the tornado, and somehow I think they knew it just wasn't gonna last.Corey Seymour Tornado's Sayings By Corey Seymour: John Belushi had that aura of someone who doesn't have a lot of time -
His mom was high when Whitey was born. She was also high when she named him. Esmerelda was the name of her sister, the only person in the world who ever treated her decently, and Torno was short for tornado, because that's how it felt when Whitey came out.
Whitey's mom had a penchant for the cocaine.

What if the house catches fire?"
"Roast marshmallows. And if it floods, you'll go down with the ship. If there's a tornado, I'll meet both you and this house in Oz, after my shift. Got it?

Anger can serve a useful purpose if it is justified and directed appropriately. But when it's only a substitute for self-loathing and a justification for cruelty to others, the trigger in your brain can become horribly destructive and addicted to that emotion. It's like a tornado that blows away all of your pleasure and replaces it with emotional poison.G. Frank Lawlis Tornado's Sayings By G. Frank Lawlis: Anger can serve a useful purpose if it is justified and directed appropriately. But when
I find I like to talk with her as often as I can. It feels to me as if I'm standing with her on a very solid piece of ground after a tornado's passed. Strength, it seems, in somebody who had a lot of courage to begin with, can at last renew itself.Jonathan Kozol Tornado's Sayings By Jonathan Kozol: I find I like to talk with her as often as I can. It feels
It's like being in the middle of a tornado. It's like, whooooooosh, you know what I'm saying? It's like Dorothy-you wake up and find yourself in the land of Oz.Jennifer Lopez Tornado's Sayings By Jennifer Lopez: It's like being in the middle of a tornado. It's like, whooooooosh, you know what
When I rest my head on the couch I know that it's coming, coming like something in the mail, something sent away for. We know it is coming, but are not sure when
weeks? months? She is fifty one. I am twenty-one. My sister is twenty-three. My brothers are twenty-four and seven.
We are ready. We are not ready. People know.
Our house sits on a sinkhole. Our house is the one being swept up in the tornado, the little train-set model floating helplessly, pathetically around in the howling black funnel. We're weak and tiny. We're Grenada. There are men parachuting from the sky.
We are waiting for everything to finally stop working
the organs and systems, one by one, throwing up their hands
"The jig is up," says the endocrine; "I did what I could," says the stomach, or what's left of it; "We'll get em next time," adds the heart, with a friendly punch to the shoulder.

I'll never let you go is scrawled three inches long down the side of my ribcage. The skin is still an angry red color, puffy and irritated looking. My gaze drifts up to Colin's in the mirror. I suck in a sharp breath as I'm caught up in a tornado of emotion. He has the same thing on his arm. They are simple, black ink only, but the meaning of the words are anything but.K. Lars Tornado's Sayings By K. Lars: I'll never let you go is scrawled three inches long down the side of my
I decided we should get married no more of this running-through-the-rain shit. We should live in the same place, sleep in the same bed at night, wake up together in the morning, and whenever there's a tornado, I can take care of you and watch Baseball at the same time.Curtis Sittenfeld Tornado's Sayings By Curtis Sittenfeld: I decided we should get married no more of this running-through-the-rain shit. We should live
The roof was torn off the gym. God's way of telling the jocks that they'd better remember who's really charge.Dana Reinhardt Tornado's Sayings By Dana Reinhardt: The roof was torn off the gym. God's way of telling the jocks that they'd
I'm well-travelled so I can see places coming up. I went to St. Croix in the West Indies at Christmas and it had been hit by a really bad tornado. Values there have gone down but I guarantee they will be up again in eight years. So I'll get in now while it's cheap as chips.Melanie Brown Tornado's Sayings By Melanie Brown: I'm well-travelled so I can see places coming up. I went to St. Croix in
Hudson looks at me, waiting for what I was trying to say, but no matter how many times I try, the words won't come. My chest contracts, and panic knocks my thoughts into disarray faster than a tornado.
For years, I was silent by choice. Now, choking and straining and silently screaming, I actually know what it's like to be silenced.
