Well, we have survived another tornado. This one wasn’t as bad as the infamous Good Friday tornado of 2011, but this time it was a little different. With the Good Friday tornado we felt the pressure drop in the house and saw the trees bending, of course we were standing at the kitchen window watching the whole thing. This time we headed straight to the basement as soon as Scott got home from work. We knew the storm was coming and it was going to be a bad one. We were right. We lost power around 8 and then the power flickered for the next 10 -15 minutes before staying on for the night. Although we had power, we lost our cable/Internet connection.
So what do you do with a 3 1/2 month old during a tornado? We bring out the Jumparoo and show him that he can stand. Then we sway him to sleep and then mom and dad quickly pass out while watching a movie.
Overall, we just had down branches in our yard. The cable and Internet came back on sometime Saturday evening. Although, just a short drive from our house, on the Rock Road, there was a down power line and trees pulled up by their roots. I think we missed this one by 5 miles.
