Hi Mark,
Been a little while, and good to see you're still watchful... some things come around, and go around...

I'll say it's been a while. Nice to have ya back.
So many people post on this forum then disappear.
Always wonder what happened.

Seems longer! I had to take a break! I was getting emails about this thread and it was interesting. I had no memory of starting it. I came to the forum and I was shocked. I have been watching and keeping up knowing someday it would be time to return.

Wouldn't it be cool if we could pick a time and find our movie Twister and watch it at the same time?  That would be awesome cool!  Grab your favorite beverage and your coolest snack, and movie on!  Oh here is a video I capture while I was in Dalhart,TX down at my sisters house.  I did have this verified this as a funnel cloud by a weather friend of mine.

Nice video, the morning dove cooing in the background is what you hear all the time in Nebraska.

Jachym,
No, if you have time to watch movies at 4 a.m. you have time to program another block!

Just so everyone knows.

The last twister and the twister house is goofy to me.

In reality, the twister house is on the east side of the road. So that means that the tornado came from the northeast. That is not normal in the northern hemisphere. Most track generally west, to generally east.
That was disappointing when I drove by the house.

Watching it in class later-have the kids compare real/fake scenes.

That made me think about a Texas tornado that did just that, the Jarrell tornado of 5/97, an F5, moved SSW and killed 27 in the process. Extremely unusual.

Looked through this thread:

Watching it now in class-with edits. It is a bit Hollywood-but it is good.  It is still a love story.
The tornado can pull an 18 penny nail out of a bridge, but can't pull the top off of Helen Hunt.

I have a full size red Dodge Ram.  I want to get a full size model of Dorothy and put it in the back of the truck.

Saw the Reed Timmer Imax video. Very Good. Focuses well on the science and what they want to accomplish.

Also watched Into the Storm a few weeks ago.  I could not figure out what the purpose of that movie was. Just bad science. It did have an amazing 1.5 mile wide tornado and people inside the core. One got pulled up in his car and was above the storm. But the movie was not good.

In twister when the lady's wind mill ornament in her yard slowly and ominously begins to turn to a new direction and the blades spin up was too borrowed from Mary Poppins for me.

But there were parts of the movie that were OK, maybe I just had a hard time suspending my disbelief hoping it would be more realistic, but while science can be exciting at times but doesn't remain that way long enough for the average movie watcher and it doesn't sell tickets.

I guess I'm an old curmudegeon.

MOOOOOO as the cow said as she flew past, her hair undisturbed and tail still OK.
