I think they decided the OKC tornados were f2-f3 and the Lone Grove tornado was a f4. I sat in a park near my house that day and felt at least 3 temp changes of about 10 degrees each, warm, cool. warm, cold, then very warm, and cool, with very little wind direction shift. My ears popped, but the usual calm that follows did not come. Then I realized that the tornado was well to my northwest. This was almost as strange as all the thunder sleet we recieved last year- Strange days indeed!

Did Attila go through Scotland?? Are you originally from the steppes of Russia????
If you have deep roots in Scotland, then you probably have Celtic blood. So instead of Attila, I would believe you were Brennus, the Celtic leader who sacked Rome in 390 BC. The 'gaul' of you, especially since you went home after they paid you a ransom. But they deserved to be sacked, so good job!

A year or so after I read that book, I ran across an article about the freedom of information act, and it said that some of the materials released were quite embarrassing to our government. It seems the journals of the military men from Crazy Horses day were filled with accounts of how the men were forever fearful of the American Indians and their "Magic" from that day forward. The writer made the comment "who were the pagans here anyway?".
This always reminded me of the Salem deaths, kill what you fear. In the case of Crazy Horse, he had anticipated the attack and for a few nights he wrapped layers of wet buck hide around the trunk of his body, then slept near the fire. He was nicely armored against the musket balls, with their low velocity. So why were christian soldiers so spooked, and did they have a sense of how wrong they really were?
