The eerie green hue that the clouds have before and during a tornado haunts me. I've only been in a few but that's a feature I've noticed every time. Puts a knot in my stomach.

This has to be the most self-aware tornado. I always imagined they were wild and out of control.

been watching chaser shows since they 1st came on tv 15ish years ago, and I can honestly say that was one of the most crystal clear, unobstructed and wonderfully pristine tornados I have ever seen.
Incredible footage!
