The pictures from Joplin are just heart breaking.... not to mention all the other areas that have been effected by tornados lately. What is the deal?
|(I can appreiate this because I, myself, love my crazy meds)|
our big round came in around 10:30... sirens going off & Tornado Warnings posted. Off to the basement we went.
Ricky had already been asleep downstairs (in his man cave) & we had gotten everything ready earlier with flashlights & radios & pillows ... & my camera... (yes, Ricky laughed at me because I said I want my camera to be safe) ... & I headed to the basement with all the dogs behind me. I turned on the TV, sat down & instantly, 3 dogs are in my lap shaking like little lambs. The 4th dogs is just sitting at my feet with a ball in her mouth... nothing - I mean NOTHING - not even impending doom - will stop that dog from playing with a ball.
The wind is howling, the rain is beating against our basement door & then our electricity pops off & instantly comes back on... just enough to sound off our house alarm. That jolted Ricky straight up & he literally RAN straight into our back room in the basement...
I had to laugh because I said, "Gee - thanks for worrying about me & the dogs sitting here on the couch" ... each man for himself I guess.
he said, "I was asleep - I didnt know what was going on" ... ok... good enough
Until.... 10 minutes later, the electricity pops again & WHOOOSHHHH - there goes Ricky running to the back room again leaving us all on the couch again.
At this point - all I could do was laugh so hard I thought I was going to pee on myself...
Storms passed though - we only have limbs down everywhere... all is ok & we are safe...
Ricky may actually still be in the basement.... I need to check on that.
Hope everyone has been safe during this craziness that is Spring.
