Describe the worst storm you have ever personally experienced... We have some very bad storms roll through Chicago all the time. One of the worst I can remember was a combination torrential rain/extreme wind/electrical storm that blew roofs off houses, flooded streets, started my friend Sam's house on fire, and filled the streets with a lot of rubbish. It was fun sitting through it though. Very intense. That was about two years ago. I saw a tornado once from a distance too. That was exciting too. I love storms.
