What a way to wake up!
This morning I got up to get the kids ready for school, I turned the radio on and heard that a severe thunderstorm was headed our way so I ran over to let the dog out and then ran up to wake the kids up and before I managed to get back down stairs our power went out accompanied by a loup clap of thunder
I almost peed my pants the power came right back on but I had 3 little kids out of bed and down stairs faster than I think even they thought they could move heading towards the tornado shelter. My poor kids have never had any reason to be scared of thunderstorms before but about 3 months ago we had something like 5 tornados touch down all within about 15 - 45 miles from us we had the kids sleep in the tornado shelter that night just to be safe, and ever since that night severe thunderstorms equal tornados in thier minds. I used to love thunderstorms, and even when we moved to Missouri knowing it was in tornado alley I never gave that any thought up until that night now thunderstorms make me a little uneasy too so definately not a good way to wake up this morning.
