Thanks for the feedback, Matt.
Meteorology's mistake has to do with mischaracterization of the role of H2O in storms. The real reason H2O is associated with storms has to do with H2O's surface tension being maximized under the wind shear conditions.
Stay tuned to thunderbolts Forum "Future Science" category. I will be putting up the first chapter of my next book before Xmas. The subject matter explicitly addresses the the molecular basis of the plasma that forms the sheath of tornadoes. BTW, this substance might explain some of the stranger observations associated with the high wind speeds of tornadoes, like blades of grass embedded in telephone poles.
I really liked your website. Its got me thinking about low cost solutions.
Off the top of the head, one of the complications associated with *any* kind of permanent enclosure--in addition to the cost--is the fact that, tornadoes being extremely rare, people will start to use the space for other reasons, storage for example, and then they are more likely to put a lock on it. Or they might even forget about it altogether. And it will be less likely to accommodate multiple people or the fact you might not have time to find the key. Etcetera.
I'm thinking of some kind of steel structure (maybe kind of a cage) that would also be decorative, not easily forgotten or dismissed, and that could be installed on peoples property--in a standing position--in a couple of hours. And that, in the rare event of a direct tornado impact, could be pulled down (exactly how it would be hinged I don't know) maybe over a relatively slight depression in the yard, requiring people to lie down during the short duration of the impact, and provide, let's say, 95% of the protection that being in a shelter would afford.
Thanks again for the feedback
