I took Capri Suns, a flashlight, and dry cereal to our safe spot, and convinced Jackson we were going on a really cool adventure. He was going to eat breakfast in the bathroom (like I would ever really suggest that!) The news anchor then stated a funnel cloud had been spotted just miles from our house...at the school I used to teach at. We prayed.
Blake and I were texting back and forth. I stayed in contact with my mom, mother in law, and Brad called to check on us. Schools dismissed. Blake and I decided to go to my parents' basement for "Round 2." We were safe, and fine. We came home after what we thought was the worst part had passed.
The weather got worse as the night went on. There is tons of damage to our area.
