MOORE, Okla. -- Mother Nature may be tough, but the folks in Moore, Okla. are much stronger.

"It was kinda pretty scary for the first time,"

"There were trees going down, and the car port, and people screaming,"

One tornado survivor rode out the storm in his closet, then ate the beef stroganoff still cooking on the stove.

Everywhere you look, there are reminders that the community is resilient.

"You know, all I can say is we're pretty fortunate. We're very lucky."

Moore has been repeatedly abused by Mother Nature, and yet they always come back, stronger than ever.

"An awful lot of the ceiling fell down on the furnishings, and onto the floor. We've got that cleaned up, as well as water,"

The walls and ceilings may have collapsed, but there is a sense of humor that is still very much intact.

The residents of one house put up a garage sale sign, and the woman told NewsChannel 4's Lance West that just like the house, everything outside is half off.
