We don't get many tornadoes in NZ, and up until a few years ago we never did, so, thanks to the weird weather we all get these days. But a few day before my 2nd son was born I was bringing in the cows, I came around the corner and looked up and there was this huge tornado in the paddock behind our house, at least it looked like a tornado.
I freaked out and rung the missus on my cell and as we were talking it just sort of dissipated and blew away.
Turns out it wasn't quite a fully formed tornado, but was just one step away from it. Scared me silly anyways.
While I was in the states I experienced the strange weather you fullas get on the big flat plains up in NY state, the whole sky filled up with lightning, and one night we had one thunder storm after another go over.
