Large storm with tornados moving across cherokee county, so we're under tornado warnings here. We've got the boys and the dogs and we're down in the basement. The storm is LOUD!

I don't mind the storms, but I am scared of tornadoes. And I get really nervous when they sound the sirens.<br><br>
But it's kind of cute watching P-doggy defend the house from those big bad thunderclaps.

The basement is a good place. We were there at 3:30 this morning. Of course we couldn't check the usual places for a weather update because we had no electricity. Clearly it's back on now. Finally.

Stay safe!<br><br>
Ironically I had a tornado dream last night. I think it must have been triggered by the post asking what happened in Atlanta. I'd describe the dream, but you probably don't want to hear it. <img alt="lol.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/lol.gif"> (everything came out OK at least!)

Stay safe!!!! ♥<br>
The sirens are always eskeery!!!<br><br><br><br>
Up here in tornado country, DH & I have stories of spending HOURS in our basement with the Trolls, and HOURS with students hunkered in school down during warnings.<br><img alt="uhoh2.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/uhoh2.gif"><br>
In fact, just last spring, we spent two hours huddled with a couple hundred track athletes and families in the UW Shell locker rooms and bathrooms while the tornadoes ripped up areas around us. <img alt="sad2.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/sad2.gif"><br><br><img alt="" src="http://bestsmileys.com/storms/1.gif" style="border:0px solid;">

The tornado sirens just went off here. Sounds like a bomb raid from the movies.<br><br>
We have two rooms in this apartment that don't have windows (the bathrooms) so I hope nothing comes near here. I'm sure it won't.

Well, shortly after we moved upstairs, the sirens started again so, back down we went. Now we're back up again. It's friggin' COLD down there!<br><br>
Thank goodness we have a drive-under. You know, the passenger seat of a mercedes-benz is a perfect place to breastfeed a baby. Ergonomically ideal, AAMOF, with a cupholder close at hand, 10 way adjustable seats, and plenty of places to stash burp cloths!
