I stopped to get the mail on my way back from the gym/doing errands just as the storm began to hit. I guess the tornado and high wind warnings were true, because this branch broke off a tree about 15 feet in front of me.
It got really dark and REALLY, REALLY, REALLY windy here and there was thunder, lightning and rain. I saw another tree in the back of our apartment blown down and was getting nervous, I admit. Zoe & I stayed safe in the corner of the kitchen, away from any windows just in case. That was 30 minutes ago (from about 3:40-4:00pm). It’s now 4:20pm and the rain and wind has stopped and the sun
looks like looked like it was trying to poke out here and there for a hot minute. I can hear sirens on the main road though, so I hope whoever they’re going to help is okay. But I’m relieved that Zoe & I “survived” my first big Southern storm. Hopefully the other tornados/storm tracks in the area stay on course and avoid us. I’ve had enough excitement for one day. No trips to Oz for this girl. I’ve got a wedding to attend in 13 days!
