When I left my house this morning, it was pouring down rain.
Every time I had a break in my class and I walked to the front door for some air, it was pouring down rain.
When we left the city and started driving home, it was pouring down rain.
We were half-way home when the tornado sirens went off. One tornado - on the ground - to the south of us. One tornado - about to touch down - heading in our general vicinity. Yet another tearing up the ground in still another direction. On the radio, warnings to abandon your vehicles and find a ditch to lay down in. Now.
The FX was at my house with the kids and everyone was calm. The Silence of the Lambs basement went untouched. I got home safely, pizza was ordered and devoured, and we went on with our night. It's still pouring down rain.
It could be worse. We could be in Texas.
(which reminds me, texans...we're all thinking of you. be safe.)
