This is still my favorite tornado/network related item:

Back in the early days I was out of the town for I think one of the  
first times ever after starting the business (at ISPC maybe?).  I  
logged on to see a huge drop in the number of people dailed up at a  
time when it should have been going up.  I was a bit freaked out when  
I noticed at the same time the temperature had fallen 40 degrees in  
about 20 minutes.  A quick call home let me connect the dots.
