Sounded Jes Like a Tornader

Someone told me a story about a train wreck down in old Dora. I have no idea if it's true or not but I love the story so I'll tell it here.
There was an old guy that lived in Frenchtown which is a community near Old Dora. The railroad that runs through Dora, is cut into the side of a mountain and Frenchtown, which is a sleepy community is situated on level ground about a hundred yards down the mountain from the tracks.
About twenty years ago a freight train loaded with produce and new Fords jumped the tracks near Frenchtown and the momentum pushed the engine and several cars down the embankment. The engine came to rest only a few yards from the old guys house. The news reporters from all around rushed out to the scene, to interviewed the old guy. "What was it like," they asked. "Hit (that's the way he talked) sounded jes like a tornader coming."
OK, here's a joke for you - Do you know what a redneck divorce and a tornado have in common? Somebody is going to lose a trailer.
I grasping at straws tonight, so I'm going to quit while I'm ahead.
