Texas Tornado!

We had a little bit of excitement around our little part of Texas recently when a TORNADO decided to tear through town!

Thankfully, no one in the DFW area was killed in the tornado(s) that blew through, homes and cars can be replaced, people cannot. We knew from the weather radar exactly where the tornado was as it approached our house and we watched it closely, ready to retreat to the bedroom closet for safety if need be.
The tornado inspired a lot of excitement, a little bit of fear, and a new awareness of weather phenomena like tornados and hail!

Elizabeth begged to use my iPad in the middle of the tornado chaos, turns out she felt compelled to create a ‘weather report’ with the video camera!
