TIV

Today we got to go see the TIV and meet Sean Casey who built the TIV. TIV is short for Tornado Intercept Vehicle This guy built a tank basically with sides that move down to prevent the wind from picking him up and stakes itself into the ground. He did this in the hopes of getting a video of the moment a tornado makes contact and what it's like INSIDE a tornado. So for 12 years he purposely tried to park the TIV in such a fashion that he would be hit by a tornado. What resulted is the movie Tornado Alley. Sean Casey was very interesting and kind and the TIV was just AWESOME!! So glad we got to go :)
