I read about Tropical Storm Fay in Floriday. http://ap.google.com/article/ALeqM5gW7Ur7I6YEcSo4_KU3maMkK9JQ1wD92LGVPG0
It reminded me of the tornado we had here. People said it wasn't a tornado, but you can still see the torn off trees on the highway by our town store. Remember how the powwow tent tore apart? Maybe it wasn't a tornado, just like Fay wasn't a hurricane, but it still caused damage and fear. And we still talk about it.

Does your family remember it?
