Lesson From a Mile-Wide Tornado: Get Yourself a Tornado Shelter!

Share News:


We built a storm room in our home, and of course it’s filled with junk that would survive a tornado while we blow away. Maybe it’s better to have one of these always available: New Day Tornado Shelters, $3200 fresh from Tulsa, OK where they certainly know a thing or two about twisters.

Our hearts go out to the folks in Cleburne and Granbury, who were really walloped with tornados Wednesday night. I think everyone needs a tornado room or shelter if you live in North Texas — agree? My cousin is a meteorologist at the University of Hawaii, and he tells me we are in for more wild weather patterns. So be prepared!

Which reminds me: would you pay extra for a home that had a tornado shelter?
