I Blame the Wizard of Oz

Whoever coined the phrase "April showers bring May flowers" clearly was not from Arkansas, because in Arkansas April brings nothing but May tornadoes.

Have I ever told you how much tornadoes scare me? They cause me to awaken at 4 in the morning, yell at Rusty that the siren is going off and we need to hide in the bathroom, turn on the news, assemble the tornado surviving essentials (blankets, a diaper, wipes, and most importantly, SHOES!) in the bathroom, and then sit on the tile, wanting to puke.

You may be thinking, "Oh Sadie, you over-reacting twit" but that would be before you see these pictures.

This is the Asian market that lost it's wall.
You can kind of see the wall caught up in the tree.

Here is a better picture of the wall in the tree.

Norah is clearly underwhelmed.

Here is the top of a light pole. Obviously, that is not
where is belongs.

Big mess in the front yard.

Look! These people got a new aluminum slide from
their roof to the ground!

Wowzers. Somehow a Norah picture found its way into the pictures of death and destruction.

i've been in so many tornadoes... they really don't bother me as much as they should... even after seeing pictures of their distruction. ask me for the story about nicole e's mom and the tornado later.
