Yesterday’s events came almost out of nowhere. A tornado shook up our city and while our house lost only a few shingles, not everyone was so lucky.
Earlier yesterday afternoon the kids and I headed down to the Planet Earth celebration(which I’ll blog about tomorrow). We knew it was gonna rain but the weather was surprisingly good.
The hubs was at work, which is a once a quarter deal If even that.
Within two hours of being home, Daddy Roo calls me and says there’s a tornado coming. A WHAT?!
I grabbed some food, water, my laptop and flashlights and woke the baby up then we all headed to the safest room in our house. which was unfortunately a poweder room that had to fit three of us AND an eighty pound dog. I heard it pass through although I don’t think the actual funnel went over us. neverthesless, there was lots of noise and hail and heneral scariness.
When it was over… well actually my phone had no service so i realied on social media to keep up. Our really awesome news station has a Weather on the Ones facebook page (that Fadra told me about funny enough) and I watched that and Twitter to know when it was safe to come out.
I love theat social media kept me up to date. our cable was out and i was stuck in a closet so what was I gona do? thank you social media.
And now I’m thinking of all of those worst affected than me. Sending prayers.
I’m definitely feeling grateful.
