Well, we are one of perhaps 2 (?) houses on our little street with power, thanks to our generator. The power company still hasn't restored service here after over 24 hours since it went out in a storm yesterday morning. So, both :-( and :-).

We had eight tornadoes in the area two days ago, including Kokomo where a Starbucks was flattened but everyone survived because the manager hustled everyone into the restrooms just in time (he is being called a hero and there is a crowdfund site set up to get him a new bike to replace his which was destroyed in the tornado).

There was apparently at least a funnel cloud in Indy yesterday which prompted a tornado warning siren without the weather service putting out a notice first.

But we are OK here and our house is OK and our critters are OK, and I am able to post this, so, could be way worse. :-)

yikes! Yet more tornado drama! I'm so glad everyone's okay!

So crazy that you guys are just a few hours to the east and we've had a few blips of storms, but nothing crazy like that!

I realized I really don't have a good plan for my cats. Last time there was a real tornado warning, the cats had run in the closet on their own because of the wind/thunder, and that's my best shelter, but if the building was destroyed, I don't know...scary!

Yeah, we really need to come up with some kind of protocol for all 9 of our furry ones (yikes!).

It was scary. Speed was shaking and panting the whole time because I couldn't find his Thundershirt. :-O

I'm so glad you're okay! I saw that Starbucks on the news. Wow, what a powerful series of storm.

*holds you tight*
