Super bad weather

It's been a scary week in our area of the nation. Lots of tornadoes and thunderstorms.

The poor meteorologist spent most of the afternoon on the air, and I'm fairly certain the morning guy did as well.

We've been trying to find out information about casualties and general destruction, but aren't getting too far. The stations in this area are much smaller than the ones we worked for, and we were always way understaffed during crazy weather events. I understand their problem, but I really want to know.

Bob saw one of his former students, and she told him that an entire town is gone. It is. An entire town. I can't even imagine.

Thanks to Bob's background in meteorology, I felt fairly safe. He let us know when we needed to head for our "hide and seek place" -- that's what I told Little Elvis it was. The boys and I spent several minutes in Little Elvis' closet. I put pillows down, and brought some Easter snacks.

They were bored, and covered in chocolate after 3 minutes. Little Elvis wanted to see the tornado, and Baby Plum (who hates any sort of confinement) just wanted out. Luckily, the tornadoes went south of our area.

My heart and prayers go out to all the families that are hurting.

Been thinking about you and glad to hear everyone is okay.

I remember storms were really thrilling as a child - but I don't look forward to them AT ALL as a parent.
