Bundle up tight! Flurries tonight...

Guess where we were last night? Yup...in the tub.

(I love how Keely is looking down at Kitson like "there's no room for you!")
Oh, that wacky weather!!!
Ben and I were watching a documentary on the computer. Harrison was soundly asleep. My mom kept calling to warn us about the weather but every time we turned the tv on it just said tornado watch (which means keep alert which really does not mean anything too serious). Then the docu finishes and we start discussing it (it was about the Bible and ancient mysteries). The wailing of the sirens start. Freak out!

(Harrison's mattress serves as our cover over the tub if a tornado strikes).

So we turn on the tv and they say there is a possible tornado about two blocks south of us. So I had to wake up my little sleeping boy. We don't have a tornado shelter so we take cover in the tub. My parents do have a shelter but there was not enough time to get to their house as they live 2 blocks south of us where the possible tornado was!!

We fill the tub with blankets, pillows,etc. Harrison thought it was such a good time.

"Yay, mommy we get to read in the tub!!" Ben keeps the tv on and loud so we can hear its direction. Eventually the rotation moves east of us so we are all clear. Whew!

I have not talked to my mom yet this morning to see if any of the winds damaged her yard since she has lots of trees. Luckily, nothing ever touched down here but there were tornadoes elsewhere in the state. Our town streets are flooded. They have tow trucks out now helping people get out of the water!!! So guess what??? Now it is snowing!!! Sometimes I really think we have America's Worst Weather. As a matter of fact, sometimes CNN says it is LOL (they pick a new place every day).
