    Dogs can tend to freak out from time to time. I have a dog and he will ocasionally bark at nothing for little to no reason. That, or he may go wild. Maybe your dog just saw another dog and or animal and it startled him/her?

    If you're under Tornado watch I suggest you call your dog in. Then, if you're home alone call your parents. If there is any mention of a Tornado, I suggest on moving to the basement and listen to the radio for any warnings. If not your basement, head over to your neighbours house if your parents advise you to.

    It's a dog... you trust an animal that'll throw up and eat it just to see if it tastes any better? That sniffs ass, crotch, loves the smell of farts, eats from the floor, drinks from the toilet?

    Meh. Man's best friend!

    I'd trust a dog over most people.

    Animals have a sixth sense when it comes to weather, so bring your dog in and protect yourself from the weather.

    Dogs, cows, horses, birds etc tend to know when something is up, weather wise. As you may notice, these animals tend to go somewhat crazy when a storm and or a tornado is approaching etc.

    Definitely doesn't hurt to have a simple contingency plan - we had a tornado warning (water spout sighting we heard later) on the coast here a couple of weeks ago. We always make sure we have a cell, shoes on and are on deck near the stairwell closet (central with an isolating door and structurally solid). We always keep watch on weather.com from the notebook too (which will keep going even if there's a power outage).

    Yeah, and it comes and goes FAST. That's why there's so many people zinged by lightening. You're out on the beach, it looks like it's *miles* away, then 5 minutes later and it's on top of you (and you're the highest point on the beach).

    It's good because it also tends to blow out of here quickly. During the summer it will be a perfect day - cutting up some waves - @ 2pm it turns into a typhoon for like an hour, by 3pm, back to the beach :D

    We have to be extra aware since were like 1200 feet from the ocean. Though the high pressure from the coast tends to push storms AWAY from us!

    Has a storm ever happened when you in the beach?

    I got caught offshore once in a pretty nasty storm - LOTS of electrical activity - kind of the last place you want to be is in a boat, running WOT through 7-8 foot swells with lightening crashing all around you.

    It smelled like a burning, jammed photocopier all around - my hair was standing up like it was static charged. Pretty scary stuff :D

    On the beach? Usually we clear out pretty quickly - I was born and raised in the Jax/Jax Beach area so I have a pretty good sense of how the weather moves around here.

    Major storms? We got hit by a small hurricane (not directly) a couple of years ago - knocked out power for 5-6 days - we fired up the generator and the gas grill and made it like a camping experience :) (it was semi-craptacular)
