Last night they issued a tornado warning for Knox County and much of the surrounding area. When I heard this on the radio, I was ready to grab a fog horn and run around my house and scream “take cover.” Thankfully Mark kept me calm. I kept trying to explain to him that I am from Arizona and we don’t deal with tornadoes over there. Besides even if we did we wouldn’t have to jump into a little ditch on the side of the road, we could jump into the Grand Canyon and we’d be safe. The tornado would miss us completely. All that to say, I had a hard time staying calm.
We watched the scary storm clouds roll in.
The boys listening to the tornado warnings on the radio. Don’t they look scared!
Yes, I freaked out and made us take couch cushions into the bathroom.
Our kitchen window was the worst. Glass blew all the way into our living room. We had hail on our carpet.
Our vinyl siding will need to be replaced.
The culprit: golf ball sized hail!
Our Total Damage:
Five broken windows
Torn up vinyl siding (the back and side of the house)
Three broken screens windows
Our back door is broken
Mark’s truck is dented and his mirror shattered
We are thankful no one got hurt. We can easily replace stuff, but we can’t replace people.
