Had to wake Chris up from his nap, which is annoying. He's wondering why we're down here, and thinks that the thunder is coming from the cat box. :D

11. Shit. Having to live through tornado season every year I know what a
horrific experience this is. I've only been in two (never hurt but two people in the trailer court (my Uncle's) were killed.)

This is truly a frightening experience. Very frightening.
