I wanted to give a quick update to let everyone know that we're doing ok after last night's storms. After the Norman tornado at 4:30, we had a power surge that knocked out our cable and internet.
Trust me when I say that it is really unnerving to not be able to track the next 3 severe storms headed towards you. I was up around 1ish until I decided it must be safe enough to rest. Wrong! Apparently the sirens went off between 2:30 and 3 a.m. Both Phil and I slept through it! We are obviously ok, but that was a horrible thing to realize this morning. Well, tonight is supposed to be even worse.
Remember how we spent our 3 year wedding anniversary? (In the broken down basement of my church eating pizza, and listening to the radio while Petey meowed in his crate.) The forecast looks as bad as that, so we may have to seek shelter somewhere.
Our cable/internet is supposed to be worked on between 4 and 7 p.m. today, but that's when the storms are going to start firing up. We'll have to see how it goes. Plus, the worst part of the storms may happen between 4 and 6 a.m. Bring on the coffee because I will not be sleeping tonight.
If you're in the path for tonight's storms, please stay safe! Any thoughts and prayers for tonight would be appreciated. Not only for our safety, but for those already cleaning up their homes and who will be in harm's way again.
