I'd encourage you to share those methods.  Either here or in a new thread.  Sounds cool!



I'm wrapping up the documentation for my methods, hoping to start doing online training soon.

Places the land form makes a microclimate that doesn't get hit as bad as most areas.

Tornadoes have interesting skip patterns. I have studied them. There's no stopping one that wants to come at you, but you can look for where they don't tend to want to go. Where I am it's the lee side of hills that are angled to face southwest. You'll still take damage, but not a full on frontal hit.

thanks we get them with bushfires where the flames will leap over hills, miss a house and burn one 500 M away by landing on it.
