Here it comes....that time of year.
Living in Tornado Alley has taking some getting use to. We had a few funnel clouds when I lived in Odessa but nothing like this place. I sort of freak out each time I hear the tornado sirens go off and I enjoy watching the local weathermen get really excited.
We had a close one tonight...they spotted a tornado about 15-20 miles from my house - click here. It makes me laugh because most of my neighbors will go outside and try to see the funnel cloud ...which I find myself with them - if it's not raining.
John has started to notice the rain/lighting/and thunder...or "funder" as he calls it. I am trying to make it a fun game when it storms - I don't want him to have fear over the storms. Anytime we hear it funder we run laughing through the house and say "GG is showing off" - GG is God.
We have a tornado plan if one comes close and we have had a practice drill. The dogs are going in the center closet and me & the boys will be in my closet. It is suppose to be an active night Thursday - hopefully nothing to active!
Speaking of storms...one of my favorite memories is me & my Daddy sitting on the front porch of our house in Odessa and watch the storms roll in. It was so awesome to hear the thunder roll and get closer.
