apparently kentucky got hit by like, a million tornadoes last night. or maybe like four, but four tornadoes may as well be a million.
until mandy texted me at about midnight, i didn't know i should be concerned about anything. i even looked out the window to see if anything was happening. mandy told me to watch the weather, and i was like 'uh, no cable!'. so i had to friend WAVE 3 on facebook to keep me informed. and reading everybody's posts about trees falling down and power going off in their areas just made me even more paranoid.
i went to the WAVE 3 site and found out shelby county was under a tornado watch, and it stayed that way for a while. then later i saw on facebook that it had been upgraded to a warning and at that exact second the sirens go off. chris and i had been going back and forth on whether or not we should go somewhere, but with the siren we were out of there. i put my shoes and hoodie on, grabbed the doctor and put him in a laundry basket (he was pissed, as you can imagine) and was practically waiting at the door and like a minute.
chris, on the other hand, was looking for his keys.
he finally found his keys locked in the truck.
i love my dude more than anything in the world, but damn is he good at locking those keys in! especially when it's really important to have them! like during snow storms, tornadoes and when i'm late for work.
so we didn't get to go to chris's parents nice safe brick house and i pissed off my kitty for no reason. by this time we'd woken phil up to get his opinion on the matter (he was like 'tornadoes, whatevs.') chris's parents offered to come get us, but by the time they got to us the warning would be over and they'd have to try to shelter with us, so we decline. i gathered up the doctor again and chris and i headed to the big walk in closed where we hid for about 20 minutes. at about three minutes til the warning was to expire phil came in the room to make fun of us for hiding in the closet. at about one minute the doctor escaped the closet and hid under the bed. i hoped the tornado didn't try to strike while my kitty was out of my hands!
no tornado ever came, at least not to my house.
so that's adventure one.
adventure two started this afternoon when i was all dressed and ready to go out. then we remember the keys are locked in the truck. i'm getting really sleepy and tired of typing, so long story short, chris and his dad broke out the back window of the truck to get the door unlocked.
yeah. so we have a temporary trash bag window, but phil is going to use his awesome lowe's powers to bring us a piece of plexi glass for it tomorrow.
