Sorry just a random thought... too many times I've seen that Storm Stories commercial on the Weather Channel...
Ha. Last month alone I have seen hail, 70 mph winds, and torrential rains. Things that do just enough damage to stress the plants to near seasonal failure and (hopefully not) potential gender issues without flat out destroying the plant.

And while tornado's do suck (badump dah) at least damages can be claimed against insurance (best case scenario).

Wow man, I'm glad you are on a hill, flooding just royally sucks, completely destroys a house yet a lot of people don't have insurance for it.

Not too far. ~8 - 10 miles.

I have 5 taps and 67" HDTV. Plus, I own a car too.

In other words, no problem. As long as you don't have issues with kids. I have a 3 year old ankle clencher.
