Twister at the 7-Eleven

Very rarely do I remember dreams. So when I do recall one, it's usually a real doozy. Case in point from last night:

In my dream I was at work; but it wasn't my current workplace, and I didn't recognize any of my coworkers. I was in a tall building in a corner office, and suddenly I saw through the window that there was a very skinny tornado approaching. I braced myself, and I could hear the tornado banging against the corner of the building. There was some structural damage to the corner wall, but that was all.

Now suddenly, the scene changed as best I can remember. I was outside walking through a city that didn't look like any particular city that I know. There were several tornadoes spinning in the distance and slowly getting closer. This was some sort of rare and catastrophic weather event. People around me were running for cover, and I wasn't about to stick around either.

I couldn't get into the first building that I tried. Next door to it was a 7-Eleven convenience store, so I ran inside and ducked down as low as possible against a display wall. I recall seeing two people standing right up against the window looking at a big tornado approaching, but they were not taking it seriously and were even mocking it. I figured those two would be seriously injured, or worse, if they didn't move.

I don't know what happened to them. But the tornado hit the building, and debris was suddenly scattered all over the store. The tornado moved on, and I wasn't hurt. So I got up, walked over to the manager of the 7-Eleven and shook his hand to thank him for letting me take shelter in his store. I guess he was some sort of germaphobe because when I tried to shake his hand, all he did was reluctantly grasp the tips of my fingers. Maybe he was disappointed that I didn't buy anything.

That's all I remember. There wasn't an exciting conclusion to the dream. If there are any armchair dream interpreters out there, have fun with this one.
