Thanks for all the well wishes.
PurpleStorm, it would be hard to leave my dog. If she were a little more stranger friendly and their little girls weren't so afraid of her....let's just say I'm trying desperately to save to put a storm shelter on our property!
Laura, I can't imagine living in tornado alley! And I can relate to the nervous bowels so don't feel bad! I have a bottle of an alcoholic beverage
stashed above the fridge that I considered hitting, but didn't in case we decided to drive to my dad's. Besides, not a good combo with the anti-anxiety meds (every time I'm tempted, I think of Whitney Houston). I bought the alcoholic beverage
about 2 years ago and I think there's about an inch gone...I'm not much of a drinker anymore.
After all the hype, the night was quiet but I was awakened 5 minutes before my alarm went off to major thunder, lightening and extreme winds....luckily it blew through fast and was just a light rain by the time my son walked the 2 blocks to school so I didn't have too much time to freak (tried to act brave for his sake!). Unfortunately, they're predicting a repeat later this afternoon...I told my son if it looked like it was going to get bad, we'd go to a bar/restaurant in town for supper, one with a basement! Alcohol and a basement, 2 things to help me weather the storm (don't worry, only blocks from our house so no driving involved!) No wonder fall is my favorite season....
