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.
