We've Got Cows

There's a tornado watch in the city right now. Yup, that's right. A tornado watch. You probably saw in the news that we had a tornado touch down, just a couple weeks ago, out in Queens and Brooklyn so yes, we actually do get them in NYC.

Whenever someone mentions the word tornado, the first thing that comes to mind is that famous line from one of my favorite (yes, favorite) movies - Twister, "We've got cows." You remember that line right? Here's a reminder:

When I was younger, I loved Twister. I recall it being the first movie that I saw multiple times in the theatre. After watching Helen Hunt and Bill Paxton run from tornado after tornado to eventually rekindling their love - always loved the romantic part - I knew I had to be a tornado chaser. I just had to be. Well, I grew up and learned that science (and running) weren't my strong suits, but never-the-less have always remained fascinated with tornadoes and of course, Bill Paxton.


  1. Marti wants to be a tornado chaser too!!!! This is her favorite movie for reals.

  2. OMG -- I thought I was the only person that actually loved that movie. We will watch it the next time you are in Lynchburg.

  3. Love love this movie! Glad to know that Marti is a tornado chaser at heart too....We definitely need to watch it next time I'm in Lburg, Kate.
