So, That Mountain Protects You From Tornadoes Eh?

In some areas, there are widely held (and sincere) beliefs about landmarks protecting you from the horrors of a tornado. For some its a river (good luck with that), for others its being in a valley (yeah, not working either), and for many its a mountain, which…well….let’s go to the tape. […]
