Yes, this post is about the weather, I apologize, not much has happened around here, I’ll do my best to keep it entertaining.
I’ve always been slightly terrified of storms (which is ironic because I live in tornado alley). The sirens go off every spring and inevitably, I turn into a big wuss!
Of course, being from Oklahoma, I’ve had some close calls.
Last year I took this picture of a funnel cloud while driving back to school from my parents.
I will never forget this day. I was beside myself with terror and grief. I called my parents crying when I saw the clouds dropping in front of my vehicle. There weren’t any ditches to take cover. I drove like crazy until I got behind the storm. Very Scary. I would be okay if it never happened again.
This picture was taken the same year while visiting my mom. There was a tornado on the ground a few miles from our house.

Every year we have to crawl into our “hidey hole” and wait. Luckily nothing terrible has happened. Knock on wood.
But this year I’m a little worried. I live on the second floor and don’t have a safe place anywhere near my apartment. All I can think about are the people from Joplin who didn’t have enough time to seek cover.
In the past year, Oklahoma has experienced several natural phenomenons: blizzards, grass fires, tornadoes, earthquakes and finally 80 degree temperatures in March. I expect this storm season to keep us on our toes!
Thankfully, I have a couple of good friends who have offered their home for shelter during the storm season.
I feel so much better knowing I have a plan. Also, I keep myself informed by watching the forecast!
I just want to remind everyone to make sure you and your loved ones are prepared!
Stay safe and stay informed!
