Project 366: Day 63

Before we get to the picture, I want to extend my thoughts and prayers to the victims of the tornadoes throughout Ohio, Kentucky, Indiana, Tennessee, Alabama, Georgia, etc. Seems with every passing hour, reports are coming in about more damage found and more lives lost.

Tonight, we had to head to the basement for a period of time. Thankfully, the system with the tornado moved just south of us.

On a lighter note, prior to the storms, Joe was enjoying pizza and a movie with is friend, who was staying the night with us. After the pizza, the boys were treated to ice cream. Good thing they didn’t give ice cream up for Lent. Slackers. (kidding!)

  1. Thank goodness you have a basement. We just don’t have them in Houston and yes, we are in tornado alley. Kate told me she sent our traveler two days ago. Awaiting arrival.

    1. Head to the middle/most interior part of your house, Georgette. My Mom doesn’t have a basement, either. She goes to one of her bathrooms, which are located in the middle of the house. She said she sits in her tub with her pearls, her passport, her wallet and checkbook.

      I am excited to hear Andy is on his way to you. I wonder when I’ll get the story from K8. The official first installment. Woo hooo!

  2. Such a precious image; the joy of fun and friendship. I had not realized you were that close to disaster, Lenore. I’m so glad you and your family are okay.

    Blessings – Maxi

    1. Thank you, Maxi. I don’t know if I would have gone to the basement had we not had a friend spending the night with us. The storm was close – relatively speaking – but I was more concerned about the winds and trees. Our house is surrounded by trees, and high winds always make me nervous. My heart goes out to those who took direct hits. Mother Nature is a powerful force. Blessings to you.

    1. I am fascinated by weather. Fascinated. I am a weather geek in every sense of the word. I have a great respect for these storms, due to the power they possess and the devastation they create. Very scary.

  3. Hi,
    The storms have been in our news here in OZ, very scary indeed, it is good to hear that the storms missed you where you are,

    A great photo, and you can tell they are really enjoying their ice-cream. 😀

  4. Glad you are safe. My heart goes out to those who are suffering at this time. I couldn’t wait to get to Facebook this morning to see how everyone fared.

    1. Thanks, Patti. I was particularly nervous about a friend of ours that runs an animal rescue. The tornado that hit Paulding county was a little too close for comfort for my friend. Alas, she and her animals are safe.

  5. So happy everyone is doing okay, there, Ms. D…
    I guess I didn’t realize how close you were to a few of those storms. Very scary stuff. Nature can be a funny thing… beautiful one moment, utterly and unimaginably devastating the next.
    It’s had to be so unbelievably sad for so many people…
