The Day After the Storm





So a big tornado touched down briefly near the airport yesterday, but our city was spared.  It was scary, but everyone's fine.  There was some big hail damage in the northeast part of town, and Big Sis's school sustained damage to windows and skylights, but school is in session.  I'm posting via my phone today, because only now have we lost power.  It's a beautiful clear day, but we heard a boom outside and poof!  So this is your post today.  We're fine.  My mom in Oklahoma is fine, though her town is in the news today.  Hope you have sunny safe skies yourself!  I love Oz, but I only want to visit there in books and movies!

EDIT:  Electricity is back on!  Yay!!!

  2. Scary!!! I fear tornadoes so much! Do you have a shelter where you can flee when it happens? Glad to know everybody is fine.

    1. They're kinda cool as long as they stay over an unpopulated open field. Yesterday was pretty scary. We were at Jason's Deli having a late lunch when the warning went out. I asked for containers for our food, and we drove to my grandma's. We didn't hear that it was near the airport until we were already in her basement. Our own house doesn't have a basement, but we've always had time to get to my dad's or grandma's in the past. My neighbors across the street have one, if we somehow failed to get enough warning.

    2. Good to know you have a safe place. Tornadoes are rare here but we also have a little shelter just in case.

    1. Actually, no. Our little old house only has a crawlspace. My dad has a basement, and he's less than 5 minutes away. My grandma has a better basement, and she's less than 10 away. Our weather guys give us a lot of warning, so we usually have time to get to either place. There's a basement across the street, too, if necessary, but in the nearly 6 years we've lived here, we haven't needed to ask the neighbors.
