This is a fascinating hub.
I think tornadoes are awesome but very scary and a few years ago I did have a number of dreams where a tornado would feature in my dream. For me it was usually negative and meant that issues might be brewing that I would have to deal with. I usually did and the only time in dreams I get worried is if I dream about dinosaurs or serial killers - very nice I know!! But dinosaurs and serial killers usually mean big trouble ahead, normally within a week or so.
Loved this hub and the interpretations!! Voted up!

This is remarkable! I can remember having a dream about an approaching tornado. My son was a baby and i was wrapping him in a rug, ( Why a rug? ) I was living in Missouri and a tornado had touched down in a little town about 30 miles away and we had gone to view the damage the day before the dream. I am still terribly afraid of storms..Interesting topic Ricky...
