In an often-played clip, she and Benny perform a violin duet of “Getting to Know You”, in which she breaks their synchronization several times to add some extra musical flourishes, to his mock irritation.

This is what I would describe as a 8.5 weather event at my location, there was rotation but no touchdown of a tornado, my house did receive some damage to the roof but nothing major, if the tornado would’ve touchdown on my house that would have been a 9.5 event however if I was in the house when the tornado hit then it would a been a 10.0 LOL…. Hopefully after I get my legal problems taken care of I will take some of this YouTube money and get a better more rugged weatherproof camera for making this type of video.
