This tornado impacted my life hugely, it is why I love Meteorology and Weather! On August 18th, 2005 27 tornadoes touched down in Wisconsin. The most significant being the Stoughton F-3 Tornado.

Thanks! I'm originally from Monticello, WI. But I was in Stoughton and about 1 mile away from the tornado the day it occurred, I remember hiding in a basement scared out of my mind. (At the time I was 8 years old) Since that day, I have been fascinated with weather. Interestingly enough only a month or two later I moved to Stoughton.Nice, thanks for sharing! At the time I was living (and my parents still do) on Red Oak Drive just south of Skaalen Road. The tornado just missed us to the north before crossing Skaalen Road and taking out a historic farmhouse on the next hill to the east. I have bittersweet memories of this day because I feel like it was the ultimate backyard chase and I botched it. Had I realized earlier that there was in fact a significant tornado in progress and that it was moving slowly, I could have gotten 5-10 minutes quality footage of it approaching before having to take cover. Instead, by the time I stepped outside there were violently rotating clouds overhead and debris dropping out of the sky into our yard, and I had to run for cover! The actual funnel was obscured by the trees that surround our house (several of which were felled by the inflow jet and/or RFD) so I only glimpsed the edge of it.
