June 29th, 2005 Tornado near Madelia, MN

This was my first tornado! I was rather excited and not always thinking straight, but I'll learn from my mistakes. The tornado is only in the video above, as my camera was set to manual mode and none of the pics turned out. Too much excitement for the first time.
