QotD: It's hot in here...

What's the most extreme weather you've been in?  A memorable storm?  Heat wave? Or something else?
A childhood vacation.  I don't remember whether it was Ocean Beach or Virginia Beach.  But there was a hurricane.  My father, sister and I were actually in the water being tossed about and having the time of our lives while they were issuing evacuation orders.  We didn't know at the time that the storm had been upgraded to hurricane status, we were just amazed at how large the waves were.  The most extreme weather and perhaps one of the best days of my life.

(No, it wasn't the safest thing to do, but both my sister and I had been on the local swim team and were pretty strong swimmers).
