Around these parts, it was July 10, 1989.  A couple of F2's and an F4 in surrounding towns.

I was in NJ on the field at Giants Stadium for a concert while all of this was hitting, which would have put me a few miles south of the Garfield-Fort Lee F0.  If one bolt ever hit that field, me and 40,000 others might not be here today.

If I recall correctly, I was out on a field exercise in the boonies of Ft. Bragg. In the previous outbreak two weeks before, an EF-3 tornado had hit parts of Jacksonville (NC) and Camp Lejeune while I was out in Wilmington having my 21st birthday party.

I was working.  I have emails to prove it.

Seattle doesn't get tornadoes... just the occasional dust whirly.

I was working, three weeks into my new job in Arizona. Didn't hear about the tornadoes.

I was having a bad day, though not quite as bad as the previous days (26/4/2011 will always be remembered as an exceptional level of suck for me).  Weather was cold and cloudy around here.
