Two months ago we were having a storm. I was not supposed to be at home but we were home eating lunch. All of the sudden I hear sirens going off. I don't do storms very well so we were headed for the bathroom. Everyone makes fun of me because I always head to the bathroom very EARLY in a storm.
I put Madelyn's mattress over our heads as we waited it out. We lost power completely in the middle of it all and I couldn't really make a call out on my phone. Finally when my mom got through to call she was going to come over to see what damage happened in our neighborhood. She said she had a VERY hard time even getting to our house. Lots of houses in the entrance of our neighborhood had been hit. Our house seemed to be fine. We were lucky!!!
One of the worst hit was a nursing home...way too close to our house for comfort...like walking distance.
So sad they had to move all the elderly out. In all the damage that our area got no one was killed!

Isn't this crazy!!
Its been over two months now and there is still damage and people out of their houses. We feel blessed that our house was fine and all of our families and friends were left unharmed also. All we had to deal with was no power. The girls still talk about the "tormado" and getting in the bathtub and the mattress.
