Tornados

Geesh , I hope everyone in the Cenral U.S. is staying safe. Just watching CNN about St Louis area. Seem's like an early start to the season . It's even windier than normal around here lately. Don't forget your neezer if you have to head to the basement . Practice an immergency plan.

Last week when a particularly bad storm came through, I saw the warning on the tv--tornado warning Henry co--I didn't wait to see where in Henry Co. I picked up Rosie, opened the curtains to look out and woke hubby at the same time. Told him tornado warning, I had Rosie and I was going downstairs. I planned on getting downstairs to the tv near the basement door but the electricity went off just as I got down there. So, I stood at the basement door with Rosie and hubby stood nearby for about thirty minutes. The storm sounded terrible but no damage. The next morning we had lots of trees down in the woods and one across the driveway a few shingles off. Lucky. More to come the first of this coming week and we don't have the trees up yet. We are not a priority since our trees are not hurting anything the tree man put us on the end of his list. Rosie didn't mind the storm at all though. She doesn't flinch with the thunder and lightning. I used to have a dog that shook through every storm so I am really proud of Rosie.

We had tornados come through here in Eastern N Carolina last week, really bad in some parts, just nothing left of houses, some was new construction, also poor areas and pricey areas were both hit. We lost power for a few hours but were fine. Seven summers ago, when I came here I started redoing the woods behind our house, most pines far enough away and deep tap rooting understory to break the fall of a very large tree, this was for hurricanes, not sure it would do any good in a twister. The National Weather Service has stated this year will be an active season. It is all so tragic.

The one that hit St Louis was 20 mins from me-no damage here but parts of STL County is in shambles-we were watching the TV when the first siren went off-after the second warning siren about 15 mins later I took the dogs and went to the basement-Rom is afraid of storms the girls wanted to lay on the steps-hubby came down and just as he got down stairs the lights went off. No damage just lots of rain-which flooded my basement. Darn mole has a run right under a window so the rain pours in there.

Hope all are safe

Glad you escaped the wrath of that one. They are scary events . Luckily we don't get too many around here. Stay safe Pat.

Just got through another Tornado warning -- just mee Rosie and Josie Wales. I held Rosie the whole time and Josie stayed at my feet. The weather forcast is for severe weather for the next two days. The good news is that I am getting my exercise in. DH has been fussing at me for not exercising my upper body to get the soreness out. Well caring Rosie around for 30 minutes at a time should help. (dumb me I just now thought of putting her collar and leash on).

Sigh spring in the south- gotta love it. We have had 2 confirmed tornados in the past week and half a dozen warnings-most at night (shudder). I grab my kids, the dogs and tell my husband where we will be- he likes to stand at the doors or on fron porch to "watch" for it.... yeah. We were lucky with the damage, just minor but am having a roofing company come to look at the house and several neighbors around me weren't so lucky. Keep fingers crossed we have lots of flooding going on here (just outside Louisville, KY) and more storms coming in the next few days.

***4 tornados as of last night in a week

yep, stay safe and tell your husband to get the hell downstairs as soon as he sees one. Hopefully he won't see one . You know hubbies though. What kills me are the ones that want to film them coming .
