This is so NUTS!
Who would expect a freakin' tornado to pop up out of nowhere in California of all places?!
In the "fanfest" area of the Rose Bowl, the day before the big game a dust devil blew in.
Yes, a dust devil. The same type of swirly wind event that makes mini leaf-tornados in supermarket parking lots.
They can get pretty big, and when you combine a powerful dust devil with several tents and canopies, which weigh nothing and are basically sails, you get a tentnado.
And it's pretty damn serious. Even an entire bounce house is picked up and hovers for several seconds!!
We're glad there were no kids in that bounce house! That ride would've been WAY too fun and would've ruined any future ground-based bounce houses for them.
Seriously though, no one was injured and that's a miracle!
