My First Tornado

Experienced my first real tornado today! Well, I don’t know if you can say “experienced”… here was the extent of it: Went to the post office at lunch and as I was driving back onto base, I noticed the clouds looked funny. I thought it looked like a tornado forming, but didn’t think anything of it. I’ve lived here for 3 years now and haven’t seen even one. But, by the time I parked, the tornado warning alarms were going off and everyone was running outside to take pictures (maybe not the smartest move…) before going downstairs into the tornado shelter. Anywhoo, I’m of course glad it didn’t come any closer. Really don’t want to experience one for real. No thank you there. Plus, last night we had a crazy hail storm that put poor little Finny boy into a nervous shaking fit :( Have I mentioned yet that I am ready for nicer weather. No? Ok, I’m ready for nicer weather. :)
