So many prayers sent to all those families affected.
Today I’m sitting at work, thinking about how precious time really is- and how I dropped both my babies off at daycare and school this morning hoping that this afternoon’s round of storms will not bring tornado weather.
But as it stands, North Texas is currently under a severe tornado watch. And I think about all the families yesterday that were affected and lost loved ones and the guilt is setting in.
Here’s the deal- we live in a Tornado area. I have grown up here- I know the drills, I know how to protect myself. When the sirens have gone off in the past- I’m aware but not too concerned.
That changes as a parent.
Now that I’m a mom- I’m debating on whether or not I should just head to get my babies so we can weather the storms together.
Most likely- the storms will not be deadly. They usually never are in this area- but there is always that fear.
What to do…what to do…
In any case- preparing your house for a tornado is important in this area so I’m leaving you with a few tips.
Now admittedly, we are on the edge of tornado alley- we don’t normally see too much action. But the last couple of years have proven that theory wrong.
So I’m sitting here- debating. Most likely I’ll head out soon.
I hope you all stay safe this tornado season.
Wiki How also has a nice feature on how to stock a tornado kit, but would be functional for other natural disasters as well.
