It's Tornado Season Again!

We spent Tuesday afternoon and early evening in the basement when the tornado sirens went off.

Thankfully we spent the weekend cleaning and de-cluttering the basement, so it was quite comfy! Our weathercasters and storm chasers aren't as much fun as the ones we watched in Kansas, but they got the job done.

I occasionally ran upstairs to peek out the windows at the storm. The clouds were a scary, unnatural purply-blue color - never a good sign.

By the end of the evening three tornados had touched down in our area. We also saw an awful lot of lightning, quarter- to golf ball-sized hail, and high winds. At one point it was raining and blowing so hard you had a difficult time seeing the other side of the street.

In the interest of public safety, I am going to re-post our "Tornado Safety" guidelines. You may wish to click on the picture for easier reading.

You're welcome!
