Who Ordered the Tornadoes?

WELL. The huge storms that tore through parts of Brooklyn and Staten Island yesterday morning proved to be – as suspected – the rarest of all weather phenomena: New York City tornadoes!

For those of you in other parts of the country that don’t know, we really don’t get a whole lot of tornadoes ‘round there parts. There are a lot of scientific reasons for that – from the lack of flat grounds to the geographical makeup of the five boroughs…although I personally believe it has more to do with the scarcity of trailer parks than anything else.

Sure, we’ve had a couple of brief twisters her and there, but they usually touch down and pop right back up. There were the real deal – destructive, F2 tornaders. Luckily, they missed the Hank & Jim studios by a couple of miles.

The old adage is true: if you hang around long enough, you will see everything.
