Tornado Season Is Upon Us

Spring time in North Texas means tornadoes! Dallas is at the Southern tip of tornado alley, and since both Brendon and I grew up in Houston, tornadoes were a new thing to us when we moved here. Last night we had several in the area. Thankfully none touched down by us. But when the sirens went off at 10 PM, I still went and grabbed Lilleigh, and she, Sammy, and I went to our premade pallet in the hallway to wait it out.

Living in tornado alley is a little scary when you hear those sirens. If only we had basements in Dallas! They say to go to the bathroom, but since both of our bathrooms have windows, the hallway seems like the safest place.

This was the scene at 10 PM.



Brendon missed all the fun! He was traveling for work. How does he always miss the tornado sirens? Really, not sure he has been here once when I've had to get Lilleigh, Sammy, and myself in the hallway...

The good news is that Lilleigh actually slept until 9:15 this morning, when I woke her up! She's sorta  late sleeper anyway for her age... normally wakes up between 8 and 8:30. 9:15 was kinda great though!
