I have been an Okie all my life and spent a good amount of spring afternoons and evenings with one on the weather coverage and one on my fraidy hole of choice. I think I've actually taken cover a total of 4-5 times in my years. However, with the recent horrific images of Alabama and Missouri and our local meterologists acting like Harold Camping, I have to admit, I got a little nervous during this last round. As we saw the tornados roaring down I-44, we packed up the kids and the dog plus my camera (shows you what's important to me!) and drove to our other home, ORU. It seems like it would be sturdier than our little closet underneath the stairwell.

Rain has started; kids are enjoying the view.

And the big concrete walkway that goes in a circle? A little boy's dream.

Here comes it's full fury. Look closely and you will see a poor soul waiting the storm out at the bus stop.

Rain's coming down in fierce blasts, but thank God, no tornado.

Gosh, we should come here for entertainment every night!

The clearing has begun. Prayers of thankfulness said, and prayers for those who are hurting in Alabama and Missouri.
