My Older Brother Doesn't Want to Move to TX

Carol: "My older brother doesn't want to move to TX because of the recent tornadoes!"

Morning, Carol. I live in twister country, and let me tell you, the threat is overblown. Not that it will make any difference to your brother, but that's pretty silly. You're probably in much more significant danger from drunken illegal invader drivers. Everywhere.

Take the entire area of Texas, mark the tornado paths on it, where serious damage has been done, and per square foot, you're probably safer anywhere in Texas than on a hurricane coast. But such thinking is likely to dissuade your brother's fears, since thinking and fear often tend to be exclusive mental departments.

I would not move to a trailer home on a hilltop in the middle of a wide-open prairie.
