Just a quick update to let you know that we are ok. We got the warnings on our phones at 12:45 saying a deadly tornado was in the area and to take shelter. It said homes will be destroyed and to get to a basement or a shelter immediately. I ignored it thinking it was a wide spread warning. The sirens were going off. I saw people getting out of there so I looked at a map to see where the confirmed “large deadly tornado” was and it was close to where we were, close being a 10 minute drive, but that’s close enough for me since I know little about tornados. All 6 kkds were awake and scared so we drove 20 minutes north, away from the tornado, and we’re hanging out in Walmart until the coast is clear.
It may very possibly be over reacting, but it was worth it just for the kids to feel safer and I figure better safe than sorry. So we’re ok and praying for those closer to the action than we are.
