    We have never owned a foreign car, wouldn't be much left of it if my husband drove into work with one, not good.

    My DD has been saving and saving and one of her top picks for her first new car is a Subaru Outlook? The crossover. For now she has a Chevy Caviler 1999 that we bought her a few years back. The old neighbor passed across the road, no rust, no dents, clean inside and out, never drove in snow and garage kept and he drove slower than a turtle. 24,000 miles. She was so fortunate as was my son. DS got my Dad Olds Cutlass, perfect condition. Dad just out grew his midlife crisis and realized he was just too dang old for a lower car and bucket seats.

    I was there twice while the parks were shut. Next day 2 opened and a waterpark! Amazing. Epcot FW had many areas still underwater with ponds in front of them. Mother Nature.

    Truly destructive tornadoes are most frequently reported in Florida during the spring and summer; the most powerful usually strike in spring. Florida has the dubious distinction of having a higher frequency of tornadoes per 10,000 square miles than any other state, including Oklahoma!

    Now you just sound like everyone else that hasn't been on a DC, I'm only 13 and I KNOW that it would be a great time for someone his age.

    Now I remember, I'm sorry. I was there when Tropical Storm Fay hit. I was there for my first ever Disney cruise, and the Wonder had to be moved to a boring port.

    Doesn't it seem odd that I know exactly where that is?

    The reason for the skewed number is because of hurricanes and tropical storms. Hurricanes making landfall can often spiral off hundreds of tornadoes. During Hurricane Charley there were four of them that spun off on one street alone.

    Outside of that, tornadoes in Florida are relatively rare mostly because you don't have the extremes in temperature often needed to create them.

    In 1991 we went on a Disney cruise- not as a honeymoon but they put us with a table with three honeymoon couples. One couple I worried about- he spent his entire time in the casino. She wasn't happy. Literally as long as it was open, he was there. I always wondered what happened to those three couples.
