A basement is nice for feeling safer, that's for sure. Western Kentucky has more tornadoes and more-destructive ones. What we get are just little "microbursts" that take out a Bradford Pear tree once a year or so.

While I agree that it's not as common as out west, Lexington has had tornadoes. One hit Masterson Station subdivision a few years ago. Around that same time, I spent some scary minutes in a mall storeroom during a tornado warning.

I laughed at your statement about the Bradford Pear trees because it's so true. Those trees are pretty weak and can't handle much wind.

My husband and I are looking at possibly relocating to Kentuck. Not sure of the area but I just wonder if we will like it there. We presently live in New Jersey and we hate our jobs and everything is so expensive!!!

Well come on down and see it for yourself. I can guarantee that most everything here is cheaper than what you will find in New Jersey. On tornadoes, I remember the Masterson Station tornado very well and occasionally we just get little microbursts like mentioned above, but usually (but not always) those things don't do massive amounts of damage.

You need to know that we have waspers, not wasps. The outsiders are always confused by the term waspers.

And it can snow, sleet, hail, rain, storm all at the same time in Kentucky. Ok, not really but in a 24 hour period it can do all of the above. It's called Kentucky weather and it likes to change fast. Be prepared.

Waspers are wasps.

Ok. We have had lots of bee attacks that have killed dogs and such and will swarm on people badly here. So I'm imagining aggressive wasps or something
