    A tornado is coming. Your house will be hit. What three things (other than family members) do you grab first to take with you?

    Actually I went through that about 6 years ago at night. I dropped to the floor until it passed scared half to death. I'd probably do the same again. LOL But if I have time and don't panic I would take my camera, hat and robe on my way to the wine cellar.

      Haha, what are you gonna take a picture of in the wine cellar? Hopefully its stocked and yes a robe would be good and where would you be without a hat?

    My 3 dogs. . .do they count as one item or three?

    If I got to choose two more I'd definitely grab my laptop and my purse.

    Ya know what? Even if the dogs counted for 3 I would cheat and find a way to take my laptop. As a writer, it's my entire life!

    What a fun question.

    Never been in one only saw one on The Wizard of Oz, but judging by that if I had time I would take my Important paper suitcase, my favorite leather jacket and my car keys.  These are the theings that I took when my house caught on fire(along with my children ofcourse.)

    Would have to be my 3 dogs -- unless they count as 1. In that case it would be photos and computer. Totally not original...

    I'd be astonished if it did, London not being home to many tornados.

    If it did, however, I'd take (1) my file with our passports, driving licences and so forth in it, (2) my handbag, as having some cash and credit cards would be rather useful if our flat vanished in a tornado, and (3) a large bottle of water.


    My back-up hard disk, for both personal family stuff, incl. photos, and work documents, is at a different address anyway, so I wouldn't need to bother with that.

    For me it would have to be the photo albums of when my sons were young.
    The memories are locked in my mind but it is so good to look back on those happy times!

    I would have to say my photos, my purse and my computer.  Those are the only things I can't readily replace and I have a ton of pics on my hard drive.

    I've been in tornados, hurricanes and fires.  In a torando, I have to agree with "ralwus" - i'd stick.  Hurricanes and fires have longer lead times and I've fled both.  I loaded up my computer, my cat, the significant other, medical supplies, clothes, food and pillows.  Then anything else I could fit in the car that meant something.  I hope I never have to repeat these experiences, they were miserable.

    That reminds me. Got to stock up on the 72 hour kits.

    One thing I love about living in Mormon country- it's not very difficult to do that.

    vehicle keys - !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Photos/physical memories you can't replace.

    All backups of all computer data or all the equipment if there is time.

    Then again - you don't say how much time we have which is critical to the answers except for the keys.

    TIME IS A CRITICAL PART OF THIS QUESTION.

    sECOND PART - SOME PPL ARE SAYING THEY ARE STAYING in THE HOUSE DURING THE TORNADO - WHICH WAS NOT PART OF THE ANSWER, (sorry caps lock) you are saying *take with you* - which denotes Leaving.
