Storms don’t normally scare me. In fact, I love a good thunderstorm. Today, was different. The weather radio was working overtime, the TV radar showed ominous storms and tornado touch-downs. The view out our window was scary.
We kept one eye on the sky and another on the TV.
Then, the sirens started blowing. Well, for the first time in my life, I didn’t want to stand at the window and watch. We grabbed our phones, chargers, the camera and the SD card for our computer backup and got the hell out of there!
We and several of our neighbors, holed up in the men’s bathroom. It’s a nice solid concrete block building with a concrete roof. We remained there until the sky cleared. The rain still pelted but the warnings were lifted.
It was a lucky day for all of us. The news is full of reports of people losing their homes, their cars. Luckily no one lost their life.
And, we got to meet several people we might not otherwise have met. Yes, a lucky day all around.
