Tornadoes not common in NYC (never used to get them at all) though they have been cropping up of late and one gave me quite a fright walking home a couple years back.

POLL DESCRIPTION

unknown member explains:

If this was 50 to 60 years ago, the question would have been "Do you have a bomb shelter?", but thankfully (and hopefully), we won't have to go back to relive those nerve-fraying times.

So, during this season of wild springtime weather, what would be your status?
