Saturday night we were under a SEVERE tornado warning. Both of our phones went off at the same time with text messages that said:
Alert Montgomery: NWS: TORNADO WARNING for MC effective immediately. THIS IS A DANGEROUS AND POSSIBLY LIFE THREATENING SITUATION!! FOR NW MONTGOMERY COUNTY.
Just like that. Two exclamation points, all caps, etc.
My nerves got way bad because we'd watched the devastation to several cities on the news earlier that day. My nerves got way, way, way bad quickly.
I contacted my film partners in crime and issued directives should we not make it. You think I'm joking but I am soooooo not. Hell...just because I'm not here doesn't mean the show shouldn't go on ya know? This was no joking matter. Alert Montgomery had TWO EXCLAMATION POINTS IN A TEXT MESSAGE TO US!
Needless to say...we articulated our plan out loud and keep a close eye on the woods behind our house. We turned the television down low enough to hear the slightest rumble and tried to figure out what would be best for us to go to...the basement bathroom (not underground) or the basement storage area (which is completely underground).
Robby said the basement bathroom so that's where we were headed. We wondered out loud if we would have trouble getting Jaru and Lucy in the bathroom with us and I was like...Jaru...no problem. Lucy's evil azz however? Might as well rename her Toto right now.
Do YOU have a plan in place regarding tornados? Do you kids know the plan? Are you signed up with the emergency texting service with your county or parrish?
Are you ready in the event of a tornado?
Do you know what to do if you're driving at the time?
Let's talk about this man. We need PLANS!!!!!!!!!!!
