"There's a tornado coming!" sis
"A WHAT?" kt
"A tornado...M and I are going to our neighbor's basement" sis
I looked outside and all looked okay other than a few clouds and a possible storm. I turned on the TV. I thought about where we would go if in fact we needed to take cover. I called Jeff and he suggested we go in the center closet in our house. Mind you our "closet" is more like a cubby. Possibly one of the kids would fit in there, but definitely not all 3 of us. So, I called the Lorenzen's since they have a basement. Laurie hadn't heard a thing about a tornado either. We ended up hunkering down in our friends basement for about an hour just to be safe. Unfortunately, Windsor, the city where my sis lives, was hit hard. Fort Collins was untouched. We got word after 2 hours that my sister and niece were safe and the tornado path missed their house by a mile!! What a day! There are hundreds of people that lost everything. The park where we just celebrated our niece's birthday had most of it's oak trees uprooted! It's hard to fathom the kind of loss these people are experiencing. O and F asked for days if a "Tomato" was coming. So, this was O's birthday.
