My first time was in the early 60’s!
When I and me “Half”-sisters and mom and dad were at home. It was a Friday night. We were watching 77 sunset strip.
Then we heard a whirring sound. Then I saw a white cyclone aka tornado! Of all things! My mom told my sis to cover the porch cushions. by that time? Too late! Mom told us to “hit the floor” all but dad did.
The next day. We all went out. to survey the damage. It looked like? the tornado “puked up” in its wake. The whole family went out to survey what was left of it.
At the time. IDK? the difference between? tornado to a hurricane? All I know is? I did not like what I saw. One! Circular cyclone! Spinning around and around. All white!
