Today we had some rough weather. It has been raining all day. At times it poured like crazy. At 5 o'clock I was on my way home from work and had to stop at Walgreens. I was line in the pharmacy drive-thru and all of the sudden the radio had an alert about a tornado and the tornado sirens started going off! I quickly backed out of line and called Tyler to see what was going on. He said the tornado warning was for our county and that the area they were worried about was about 10 minutes south of where I was. I ran into Walgreens...got the prescription ... got in the car and drove as fast as I could to Tyler's mom's house. She was watching Kenna. It was pouring rain. So hard at times it was hard to see. I started freaking out. I have seen the damage tornados can do and with our pathetic little shelter under our stairs...I'm totally terrified of being blown away. So I waited at Jan's for about 20 minutes and the 2 tornados hit ... 1 in Edmond and 1 in OKC and then the rotation stopped. Then I went on my way and drove home. All our family was safe and no damage. Trees were blown over and some people lost their roofs. And about 14,000 people between OKC, Edmond and Bethany are without power. Oh the joys of May. We still have 23 days left of it. Luckily...We get to leave on May 22nd!!! YEA!!!
