Tornado Warning and Hailstorm

Posted by on August 3, 2013

At 3:45 I was awakened from a nap by the sound of an emergency alert on my phone. There was a tornado warning. Lily was also napping on her bed, so I grabbed the entire crate and a few books and headed to the bathroom.photoSince I don’t have a basement, Lily and I hung out for a while in the bathroom.

Lily’s tail poofed up because she was so scared. It was hailing, but at first I thought the tornado was tearing things apart. I grabbed Lily and shoved her into her crate and brought it in the tub with me. She settled down a bit, but I was shaking!

IMG_4883The tornado went south of me, touching the ground several times along the way. All we got was a bunch of hail, but it was still terrifying.


Water/hail came out of the downspouts so quickly, the rocks were scattered onto the sidewalk!
