Life as an Okie

Folks, I'm coming to you live from a tornado shelter. Yup, OKC is being hit by tornadoes from all directions. The weather folks are going crazy!

Sister #1 and I have been in "hiding" since 4:30 and it's just now 5:30pm. I don't see us leaving soon; despite what Sister #1 hopes. I think she's about over this tornado shelter thing. She's having to entertain Pepper.

Since Sister #1 and are bored we thought we'd share some thoughts during this exciting time. ....

Me: I completely surrounded by fellow bloggers. No joke. I have some beside me, some behind me, and some in the hallway.
Sister #1: I wish I could go outside.
Me: Everyone is eating around me. I'm hungry.
Sister #1: I should have grab human treats instead of dog treats.
Me: Technology is amazing. I'm blogging and watching the news on a big screen.
Sister #1: I wish I could hear the news on the big screen.
Me: Did I attend college with that girl? She looks familiar.
Sister #1: Is anyone else single in this room, or is it just families? Hello? Bueller...
Me: I'm about ready to offer that girl, whom I might have gone to college with, $5 for her Goldfish.
Sister #1: Oh yeah, there's volume. I can hear the news.
Me: "No, Sister #1 we cannot leave the tornado shelter". I really said this sentence, at this exact moment. Like I said, she's over the tornado shelter thing.
Sister #1: I might have to get up. I have developed A.D.D in my old age. Did you bring your brain pills?
Sister #1: Do you realize this is the first time we have ever taken cover?
Me: Huh, I guess you are right?

Alright, Sister #1 talked me into it, we're heading home.

Over and out

We are way to used to this stuff...I made dinner and we ate by candle light. We did get helmets and put them in our little bathroom in case we needed to duck and cover...

I don't really have a safe place in my house, so I figured I better be smart with this storm. Also, my cousins live in Joplin so we're kind of on the edge.

Glad to hear that you're all right. Hugs!

How is your cousin? I'm glad you were safe, and I hope all is well....

Cousin is doing good. They were safe during all the storms, and didn't experience damage.

Glad you took shelter and that you're safe, OKC. After seeing all the damage this year, I think the only really safe place is underground.

Just catching up on blogs (um, I somehow didn't realize how different life as a Mommy would be!!). Missed you at our basement Tuesday night but I am so glad you were safe. And glad we got to go the Arts Festival Saturday. Sorry we had to leave after 30 seconds!
