Our Evening

Travis came upstairs last night and said we were having a good lightning storm. I LOVE watching the lightning storms here. We opened the blinds and had a good time watching. Then, at about 10:00 p.m. the tornado siren went off. So, we turned on the tv and found out that we were under Tornado Warning. That means a tornado had been spotted around our area. When a warning is declared, you are supposed to get in the basement. We got Sara's fishy, my purse, and Sara's pillow and favorite stuffed animals and headed down to watch tv down there. Luckily, the storm ~and tornado~ blew out of the area pretty quickly. We brought all our stuff back upstairs and went to bed. Ah, living in the middle! :)
Here is a video of the lightning I took before the warning siren came on. It's kind of long, but there are some really cool bolts and you can see the light show we get to see when these storms blow through. :) Oh, make sure your speakers are on so you can hear the rumbling of the thunder, too!

Isn't it amazing how something so beautiful can be so deadly?! I'm glad you're all OK!

God bless,
