    People who know me will probably know I have a bizarre interest in weather and natural phenomena. But sorry folks, I don't do predictions. I personally witnessed an F2 tornado in 1998 in Sunnyvale, CA. It was only a few miles from my front yard. I didn't have a camera with me at the time, and I really wish I did. Honestly, I was standing there hypnotized but telling myself I should be taking the dogs and finding a safe place. Instead, I was yapping on the phone to my husband, who had just seen the funnel cloud pass by in Mountain View amid large hail. I had a perfect side view of the funnel cloud and could see the rotation of the cloud.
