    I saw a cool big tornado on the welsh borders a couple of years back, ripping through a field. Seen a couple of smaller ones round here in the last 2 years - I don't know whether its that they are getting more common, or just that I am out more, but they seem to be on the increase....

    The UK gets more tornados per square mile of land than the US.

    We had one come through Billing Aquadrome during the Landrover show a few years back. Dropped a tree on Trailmasters' 110 and tore up a number tents. I was helping to hold a marquee down so missed it creeping past us - was a little too near for comfort.

    Rugby is getting a little close for comfort again!

    thanks for all the messages of concern lads

    only had time for that quick message then it was straight out to organise relife effort and go down the pub and watch the footy for a bit

    driving lil miss mak3m to swimming, its been pissing down all day, it suddenly goes pitch black and thunders down with rain up ahead trees, trampolines and assorted rubbish starts flying about everywhere :D

    Since when is a tornado the reason to lay down in a ditch? Rest assured anyone placed in a ditch by a Crudder ain't going to be sitting up any time soon!
