"Toto, we're not in Kansas anymore"

Dude, the weather is horrific tonight. Severe everything. Thunder, lightening, rain, wind we are even under tornado warning as I'm typing this. (have never been accused of being the brightest crayon in the box) It's a very unsettling thing when the weather turns nasty. The kids get all freaked out and it's makes for a long evening.

Michael as it is, is our little meteorologist. Oh wait, he's inquiring as we speak about the tornado warning, lol! He just has to have all the information. What all the colors mean on the radar and what direction it's going. I have to keep him away from the eyewitness news team. I suppose it's a good thing but NOT when it keeps him from going to sleep. That is where I draw the line on the input as far as he goes.

I have a nagging feeling that I will be spending sometime in the closet tonight with them. THAT is not going to be pretty. First it's not very big, it's tiny actually, and second if I go into the closet, that also means I have to be coming out of it too. Not really something I think I should be doing with my kids. :):)

I think it's time to shut down. My neighboring county has their sirens sounding, yikes. Pray I don't meet the Tinman tonight!

Curious....where are you located?... Generally I mean... I'm not like some stalker or anything. We're just getting ready to move to Kansas... So I was wondering if you are nearby.
Scarey Tornado.

Ta-duh! We make it AND we didn't have to spend any time in the closet. Although, I was glued to the tube for my fair warning.

I did see a Scarecrow in the mirror this morning as I staggard into the bathroom, but no Tinamn, thank goodness.

We were lucky and usually are. Fortunatley, we have never had the destruction our neighboring counties have had. Even last night the reports were bad, there has been some reported deaths.

Thanks so much for all your concern, I appreciate it. :)

glad to here everyone made it through the night ok- tornados kind of creep up on you - living in the south - at least we have alittle time to prepare for the hurricanes- needless to say 3 weeks without electric is not fun- a month without phone service is WORSE- as i am writing this the telephone man is in the pole- the aftermath of the storm is as bad as the before! glad everyone is well - maybe tonight everyone will get a good nights SLEEP-

When I say your blog is child centered, its not a bad thing! I Think the key to good writing is not what you write about necessarily but about how you write it. And your content and style is great.

Although as a former teacher I always appreciate the things kids do. They're little comedians and half the time they don't know it! :)

Sounds like you had your share of the crappy storms the other night, too. It's hard to believe two days ago it was 65 and now it's 19 and snowing!

(In Indiana, anyway!)
