|All Pictures from Oklahoma|
Wednesday, May 25, 2011
We're halfway through the week and I'm just ready for a scorching hot weekend....not really, I hate it when I'm sitting still and sweating...it seems like such a waste. Either way, it would be a nice break from all this tornadic activity. In regards to weather, living in Oklahoma has always been unpredictable. Tornado season would have to be the worst since tornadoes are unpredictable by nature. I remember when we first moved here, my dad would be at work, so my mom, me, and my brother would all pile into the bathroom with pillows and blankets and just hang out. There really isn't much you can do when you think a tornado might be making an appearance. I can honestly say I have never been worried, but when I saw the damage in Joplin I began feeling uneasy. Maybe it's because I have a child of my own now...maybe it's because I saw whole neighborhoods gone...houses leveled...or maybe it was hearing how many kids had gone missing...all I know is hanging out in the bathroom or under the staircase closet didn't make me feel safe anymore.
