About This Quiz

Day-to-day life is a gamble when it comes to nature. We have no control over how the Earth does what it does, and nowhere is that more apparent than when it comes to the weather. We're at the mercy of the environment. One day it's mild breezes and fluffy clouds, the next day it's thunder and lightning with wind that rips branches from trees. Freezing cold ice storms in the middle of winter, crop-destroying heatwaves in the summer. It's a mixed bag, and the best we can do is predict what's going to happen with marginal accuracy a few days out. The weather is just plain weird some days. Other days it's absolutely terrifying.

The fact is sometimes the weather gets severe, and severe weather is not the sort of thing you want to mess with. It happens all over the world in every season. It's unpredictable and intense and it can literally change the world in its wake unlike anything else. It's the true, unbridled power of nature in its most raw form, and it's as awe-inspiring as it is intimidating. And in a lot of ways, it can be as intense as you feel on the inside some days. But which severe weather matches you the most closely? Let's find out!
