When I went to pick up Aubrey from school today, it started sprinkling. When we arrived home, it was pouring and windy. I got everyone in the house and maybe 2 minutes later the tornado sirens start to sound. The kids eyes(especially Aubrey's) got very big. I had everyone go into our bathroom downstairs for a little while, called Joey on my cell phone and had him check the internet at his work. We were under a tornado warning-one had been spotted in a storm not too far from where Joey works and it was moving towards where he was and then was expected to come our direction. Luckily, it dissipated before it went too far and we were all fine. But it did worry me a little bit, especially with all 3 kids all by myself! Poor Aubrey-it traumatized her. She is a thinker and a worrier. She didn't want to leave the bathroom, EVER, she said. She wanted to sleep there all night:( Later this evening she kept repeating how that was the first time in her life to hear the tornado sirens "for real" as opposed to the testing that they do on them periodically. I have to admit it was the first time I've ever heard them "for real"too! I didn't grow up in an area where tornados were such a big threat. Ella wasn't scared at all(and of course bragged that fact to Aubrey later). Ella also drew pictures of "twisters" later on for Joey and I, so "that we can always remember the twisters," she said:) And Cali, well, while we camped in the bathroom, she just had fun playing in the toilet...j/k
The picture I posted is from somewhere around Dallas. Those are some crazy lookin clouds! I'm glad they didn't make their way over to us!
