Tornado Weekend

We had an EF 3 tornado come through our small town this past weekend, actually 2 tornadoes. The kids and I and several friends went to our basement with lots of pillows and blankets. We also had our 3 dogs and a friends dog; which so happened to be "in heat".....so, Cowboy (our smallest dog) was "on point" the ENTIRE time we were down there so we had to keep the two away from each other. NICE. We were out of power for almost 24 hours. Uck.
Anyway, all is well now but if you'd like to take a look at the video of the damage, it is here. Jeff is a volunteer firemen (and storm watcher/chaser) and actually in the video, but you cannot see his face.

Didn't know that the t-word came to your town until last night on the news. It can be scary for the little ones to bunker down. At least the dogs were there to distract!

Wow. I'm so glad you guys are ok. I miss my parents basement. I hate living in tornado alley with only a measley hallway to hide in.
