Tornado Warning

The first real tornado threat of the year. We are all pretty jumpy having been through the horrid tornadoes of May 2003. It's been a year but it is amazing how the fear returns when the wind is howling, the rain is horizontal, the sirens sound, the sky is orange and Gary Pickens is warning people to take cover.

Woohooo! How exciting! And very scary!

Cheri, Katie's dog is shaking. Poor thing.

Katie is running around the house preparing the "tornado shelter" in the hallway between the kids' bedroom. She is easily excited and is making phone calls and giving everyone a play by play.

There's about 15 minutes left of the warning and apparantly a tornado was sighted north of here, heading northeast.

There is a lot of I think I should shut down for the moment.
