Well, we were over at the park community room/storm shelter to sign up for the co-op that is going in place on Oct. 1. And someone comes charging in to make sure the room will be open because a storm is coming. So Amy and I finish up and start walking back to our home (which is across the street) and we see that the sky is dark.
So we get home, flip on the news and see that is is a severe thunderstorm. So we keep watching, thinking were okay, and then they announce that there is a tornado warning for Anoka county. And then, as if on queue, the sirens go off!
So as we are going across to the shelter, some guy comes walking towards me pointing at the sky and I turn and look and literally behind my house, about a block away, there is a HUGE cloud that looks like a un-formed tornado, and it looks like it is touching the ground.
So here we are sitting here, in the storm shelter, I have never seen it this full. And HOT. Too many bodies in such a small place.
I can’t even remember the last time there was a tornado. Gosh, years ago. But I hope it passes us by. There is no radio in here either. So of course, no one has any idea what is going on outside.
I originally brought my laptop to see if I could get online and keep track of the weather, but of course, no, my wireless network is just not strong enough. Which sucks. And there must not be any networks on this side of the park. There is about three by my house (across the street). Oh well. It would have been kind of neat to be THE person everyone looked to for weather info in here. The hero that saves the day (or in this instance, night).
And man, kids these days use such language….
Well, were back at the house and we are sending Cindy out to get Dairy Queen. Aren’t we nice?
Still watching the news though.
Okay, Just as Cindy went outside, the sirens went off, so she is in the house now and we are NOT getting Dairy Queen. Maybe another night.
Gonna go watch the news now..
(UPDATE: After it quieted down, Cindy went out to get ice cream. Dairy Queen was closed because half of their rood tore off from the winds!)
