Quick update

So, I grew up in Northern California. California has two distinct weather changes: Warm and slightly less warm. I've been in a lot of earthquakes and so much fog.


HOWEVER, there's always been the magical, legendary weather in the East Coast/South. I've never really concerned myself with it, but I've heard tell of hurricanes and lived through a snowpocalypse personally.



today, I saw heard witnessed a tornado.


So there I was, chillin

I had just come back from the grocery store, and I beat the rain, I was totes pleased with myself.

It started to rain. Hard. Then it started to hail. I can see the wind. It's colorful. THEN, I hear a loud crack and I asked my roommate "What was that noise?"

My roommate looked out our window and she was like
scary
"JESUS CHRIST IT'S A TORNADO GET IN THE CAR BASEMENT"

And I was like

AND
:D

PSA: These are not the reactions to have when your roommate (from Oklahoma) tells you that you have seconds to get to the basement.


We rush to the basement, and things are cool. BUT the ten story tree from across the street broke in half and went into someone's garage. LUCKILY, no one in our area was hurt, BUT now I know to listen to my roommate. She was not joking. And it's really lucky that I got home when I did, because this happened about three minutes after I got home.


Baby's First Tornado! (I'm really getting short on baby's firsts here)

I was basically told it was a tornado and then ran to the window to see for myself, with Fiona yanking me back. It was the stuff of sitcoms, I'm telling you.

I know, it was cute! TORNADOES COME FROM THE MIDDLE OF NOWHERE AND THEY'RE LIKE HERE AND THEN BOOOOM: WELCOME TO THE JUNGLE AND THEN THEY LEAVE YOU IN A DAZE.

I'm pretty sure it's comparable to spotting Harrison Ford on the street.

Hooray! I'm so excited for you! One time when I was in highschool, the sky turned green and there was a tornado watch, but they wouldn't let us go home or go to a basement. Awesome!

I've seen tiny twisters twice in NorCal, but I can't imagine ever witnessing the real thing!

lollllll OF COURSE YOU'D RUN TO THE WINDOW AND LOOK. 8D

But, yeah, tornadoes can be serious business.
Funny, but kind of awful, story? I can sleep through one. About two and a half years ago we had this huuuuuge storm system coming through, I was like, "whatever" and went to bed. My da came and woke me up and was like, "we have to go to the garage" (ours is underground). There was a tornado half a block from where I went to junior high -- which is about half a mile as the bird flies from my parents' house. Creeptastic.
