On a Lighter Note

Since I think the pictures are kind of hilarious, I thought I'd show you our "storm shelter." We've never really been the "take cover" kind, but over the last few weeks we've had quite a few storms and have quickly perfected the art of running to our safe place.

I gathered up tons of blankets and pillows so we'd be a little more comfy in the closet. Notice that the laundry basket has become our "night stand" - the perfect place to put drinks, books, and cell phones. Hubs' contributions? A giant flashlight, bottled water, cell phone charger, and a knife (to fend off the looters!). Can you guess who's going to actually help us survive if we needed to? Glad I have him!

The iPad has become a stormy weather necessity. We were able to stream live news coverage the entire time.

Hubs decided to catch a quick nap in between watching the news and doing a little work. Glad I brought all those blankets!

The weatherman said to wear a helmet. So I did. Just sittin' in a closet, reading a book, wearing a kayaking helmet. I would also like to point out the hilarious t-shirt I'm wearing. I bought it for Hubs several years ago. The front says "Calvinism: This shirt chose me." The back says: "Arminianism: I chose this shirt." And now I have pictures for all of posterity. Ha!

Since April has been so stormy and May promises to be even worse, I think we're just going to leave it set up until tornado season is over.
