Worst weather you've ever been in
For me it was -60 degrees Fahrenheit. Thank God there was no wind. My lungs hurt! We were limited to 2 minutes outside with full Arctic gear. This week I was in -33 degrees with a -56 wind chill. One of our new guys was complaining about it and a coworker who has a decade on me up here told him. "Shut up until it's really cold, then remember you volunteered for this"
Never been through a hurricane. Had a tornado go through my yard when I lived in the Midwest. It swooped up my best apple tree.
Ive also never been through a storm while out on the water. Pretty sure that would scare the living hell out of me
60 foot waves on the Irish sea on Stena Adventure and several times on Irish Ferries as well
Waves coming over the windows on deck nine of a huge ferry

Mt. Killington -37, first run, skied much of it backwards, slow, to my car, and went home! Next to that was the time we skied in an ice storm, treacherous as hell getting down (alive) everything was encrusted with a 1/2 to 1 inch of ice, including us! Goggles were useless, we had freezing rain and sleet pelting our faces to see where we're going EVERYTHING WAS ICE!
Does fire count as weather?
When it is that cold take a cup of boiling water outside and throw it up in the air.
I won't spoil the surprise.
I went to a feminist convention/cuntvention just to troll feminsts, definately the worst weather I’ve ever been in. I’d say it was the equivalent of a category 8 hurricane, but it’s really a cuntegory 8 hurricane on the cunt scale.
#Remember therefore how thou hast received and heard, and hold fast, and repent. If therefore thou shalt not watch, I will come on thee as a thief, and thou shalt not know what hour I will come upon thee. (Revelation 3:3)
The first was in the path of a tornado that hit a nearby town while staying at a friends house. It started dropping the funnel over his house/yard. Even worse was the fact that his parents were both pretty lax so we sat outside and watched, also grilled some chicken that turned out pretty good. Either way thinking back it was far too close for comfort.
Second was driving home in a snowstorm that dumped 21 inches in a 91 Buick Lesabre. Snowed so hard I couldn't see anything but the tracks in front of me. Made it in to town and stayed at a holiday station until I could follow a MNDOT plow truck towards home. Had to break a fresh trail up my road. New tires, fwd, and a 40mph running start and she kept momentum to my driveway. Bombed it into the side yard and walked home. Great freakin night.
Cold air is nice, turbocharging is better, but I would much rather be blown

Minus 40 degrees Celsius freak weather in Berlin winter 1996. Froze the skin off my face which peeled off like it does when you sunburn in hot weather.
