From Texas, a video emerges of a pick-up truck caught in the
middle of a tornado. See: ‘Truck caught in middle of Texas tornado’, located
. (Edit: See the non-broken links below for the video footage.)
Fortunately, the driver not only reportedly walked-away, the
driver drove the vehicle away. Such
would surely make a great advertisement for the manufacturer of his pick-up.
If searched on-line or if one follows a link below, one can
learn more of the pick-up truck driver’s story.
Maybe I will try to reach-out to the driver for an interview, at some
point in the future.
For my part, I drive around with a tornado inside of my
pick-up truck – even if such is merely in a figurative fashion. Because, the tornado in my pick-up is a trademark
of mine, of sorts – and it is posted on my rear window. If interested, one can view my common-law
mark at: http://adamtrotter.com/ , or equivalently
at: http://tornadotamer.org/ . (Note the wallpaper, the trademark of the
website – and the mark of my efforts.)
Worth mentioning, about a week ago, my tornado-prediction model
was trying to inspire me to post/blog (http://tornadotamer.blogspot.com/
) of the likelihood of tornadoes to appear in the Heartland. Any such predicted appearance might
subsequently form as a tornado in the time frame of a couple of days later than
the likelihood of such being exhibited/predicted by my model. The model then could have been predicting the
tornadoes which appeared about the time of the pick-up truck video from Texas.
Because, at the time of my observation, no saints could be
heard singing nor were The Angels singing either. Unfortunately, I did not post about the
likelihood of those tornadoes, as my time has been otherwise overly preoccupied
of late. (See: http://tornadotamer.blogspot.com/2021/12/model-still-predicting-even-if-not.html
On a related note, I have taken some unofficial steps toward
doing some official tornado research. I
have teamed-up with a data-base computer expert who believes he can help me
catalogue all the predicate/observed conditions of my model for the subsequent
appearance of tornadoes in the Heartland.
Such would allow for the ease of searching the data and comparison
thereof after tornadoes have formed elsewhere.
A data search which would then be easier to perform than reviewing my
random blog entries. Someday, once a
baseline established, we might pursue some grant monies or even some SBIR
research funding. Time will tell.
