I’m not in Kansas

…yet, we were under a tornado warning Wednesday. Tornado…California… yeah, those don’t go together. Earthquake, sure, but not tornado.

So people were freaking out as they heard they needed to get in a sturdy building and ‘take cover’. The girl I was with at the time was panicked. So panicked, she informed me she had the runs and bad gas because she’s that panicked.

uummmm, thanks. Please sit further away from me now.

I’d only known the girl for 3 days. Apparently I have that ‘please tell me anything’ face.

I went outside {because that’s what people do when they’ve never been in a tornado warning} and looked at the sky where it was supposed to be coming. And I have to say, the sky looked extra ominous. {it was neat!}

After awhile, the wind picked up, the rain/hail dumped down and the lighting covered the sky, followed immediately with beautiful glorious monstrous thunder. I love thunder!! But not the girl I was with, as she screamed (yes, screamed) and cowered under her desk. she’s a grown woman, in case you’re curious.

I admit, I started laughing at with her, thinking she was joking…she wasn’t.

I confess, I blurted out that ‘something smelled’ before remembering that she had an “upset stomach” but played it off because, I really didn’t mean to say it. And really, we all have our moments…this is just hers.

All that to say, I was more worried about my precious car sitting unprotected in the rain/hail than my own life. I know, my priorities are all wrong..but alas, it’s the thing that gets me from A to B. – No tornado though. Just crazy weather that dumped so much quarter sized hail that 2 hours after, the ground was still covered white, making it look like snow. Not to mention the countless car accidents and the landslide that blocked the other {thankfully} side of the freeway.

Many orchards are no doubt damaged by this storm, so if you see fruit prices on the rise this season…blame the silly tornado warning here.

I sure hope your weekend outdoes last weekend. Because really, we need to show last weekend what’s up.

Pin It Now!

I'm so glad you are ok and that you didn't die in the tornado nor the gas chamber created by your coworker.
You're a true surviver!

When I lived in Missouri we had tornado warnings a bunch. They had warning sirens and we all had to go to the basement. We never got hit by one while I was there but it made me a little nervous.

Bahaha! Should I be laughing? I had no idea there was a tornado warning in California! What part do you live in?
