Take cover!


Chaos in my house. There are tornadoes warnings all over our region. We are in the pseudo-basement of our house under blankets with m&m's. We have a "weather expert" child so he was proud to say he called the "bow echo" he saw in the sky and on the news. I know I shouldn't be on the computer. It is close quarters in the other room and they are glued to the television. My mom called and said "where are you?" and then when she heard "downstairs" she about hung up. We had serious wind, rain and hail here. We were moments away from going to the drug store to pick up a prescription. I think we will hang tight right now.
Mr. Thorn called all the little Thorns outside to watch the rotating clouds and I didn't feel it was a good form of Sunday entertainment so I called them back in and tried to negate the vision of swirling stuff in the sky. Mom is on the phone again. We are comparing notes on the whole event. Spooky.

Spooky is right - I hope it all passed over uneventfully.

We made it. Even went to pick up something at the store later in the evening. Whew.
