    We just had a tornado. I was outside, getting soaked, trying to round up a terrified goat kid that couldn't see because of the rain. Came back in with the goat and about the time the rain let up, the power went off. Pitch dark - couldn't see a thing.

    So, we turned on my husband's fire scanner and they were paging them out to a tornado touch down 3 miles from our house. 3 miles!!! I'm terrified right now. They said that a person's house was torn up and that their barn was on fire. That could have been us. We just don't get a lot of tornados here.

    Thanks be to God for keeping us safe... especially me running around outside in the pouring down rain in a tornado!

    Quote:Houses are not really built with basements around here. We do have an interior room to go into. Still no electricity and it's been about 45 minutes.

    I just filled up the bator, too. [​IMG]
