https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/2000_Fort_Worth_tornao I traveled to Fort Worth after the 2000 tornado. Lots of devastation. Tornadoes do hit cities, but less frequently.

I loved the show, bummed your doing recaps of Poldark I have read all the books & watched season 4 already. Here are a few thoughts - who doesn't love a handsome buffed man soaking wet walking out of the raging Sea? Really lame Hugh is dead . I cried during hanging for the father . Tholly needs a shave & a bath! Even Prudie was glad Ross is home. Caroline's hair whose idea was that ? it resembles sponge Bob it is so square . I Look forward to your show every week . Julie your a Nana after my own heart . #Grammyof6
