The kids were sleeping while the wind was blowing. A storm was coming. Then the warning siren went off. We checked the television to see if there was really danger of a tornado in our area. The meteorologist drew a triangle on the map around the area where the storm was most intense and where there was the most likelihood of a tornado. I stared at the screen. He had drawn the triangle right around our neighborhood!
So, we woke up the kids and headed downstairs to wait it out. It was a little bit scary, but kind of an adventure. Finally, the danger passed. No tornado had developed. Kids tucked safely back in bed. :-) It rained and rained and we all slept soundly.
Today the news reported that a tornado touched down less than ten miles from our home. It was headed this direction but died down before it got this far.
