Oh, the joys of the first tornado warning of the season.
There is a tornado warning in my area right now. The tornado sirens just went off, so I turned on the TV to look at the map. Fortunately, tornadoes are slow enough that you can get out of the way if you have enough notice. You can watch the map on TV and watch what direction it is heading.
Right now, it looks like is west of us, and it is heading northeast. So, this one looks like it’s going to miss us.
When a tornado hits you, it’s bad. But, if it is heading for you, you have time to go underground or go to a shelter. We have a whole in our garage floor with a sliding cover. It is between the wheels of the car, so it doesn’t take up any room. It’s small, but my hubby, the three dogs, and the birds can all squeeze in. The bunnies like to stay outside most of the time. They will probably safe be underground in their burrow.
So, this is how Oklahomans celebrate that spring is almost here. There will be weather news on all TV channels all night tonight. If there is one tornado, there will be more. So, I know what I’m going to be doing tonight. Here’s a Weather map of Oklahoma City if you want to watch the fun on weather.com.
But, there are bad natural conditions all over the world. I lived in southern California for 40 years and lived through a lot of earthquakes.
So, why do I live in a town with tornados every year? My hubby’s kids live here. I moved here when we got married.
So, what recurring natural conditions happen in your area? Floods, fires, blizzards, etc. It is my feeling that there is no place in the world that does not have something like this that happens every year.
I had to pick a category for this so I chose “Entertainment” since we have to watch the weather news all night. Fun fun fun!
