On Sunday my DH and daughters were in the backyard when the tornado sirens began going off. I was not too worried, because we have had a lot of false alarms recently. (Anytime there is a tornado in the county the alarm will sound, even if we are not in the path of the storm.) After everyone came inside, the storm really picked up. We were very lucky and were spared the damage many other homes/ businesses had in the area. (We did end up with our neighbors pool in our backyard!) Many trees & power lines were knocked down and most of the town (including us) were without power for 3 days. (2 of those days were in the 90's... I have never been so thankful for air conditioning!)

Forever missing our angels...

Wow, I'm glad you're all okay and were lucky enough to avoid damage! That sounds almost exactly like what happened to us a couple weeks ago. So many tornadoes already this year, I hope they'll stay away from all of us now

Thanks ladies! I am soooo thankful everyone is safe and that there is no damage!!!! I hate tornados! They really scare me! When we first moved to the house we had before this one we had a really bad storm. DH was at work. The sirens went off 5 times that night! The first time my DD was in the shower. She had to grab a towel and run down to the basement dripping wet & naked. The second siren she was in bed (her 1st time sleeping on the top bunk of a bunk bed...) Needless to say she is my little weather lady. She refers to that night as "The night of the tornados....) and gets nervous when storms are in the area.
