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.Since I don’t have a basement, Lily and I hung out for a while in the bathroom.
At 4:30, the warning expired, but a new one replaced it. A tornado had touched the ground 5 miles west of my condo! Suddenly, I could hear the strong winds and a horrible banging noise. 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!
Water/hail came out of the downspouts so quickly, the rocks were scattered onto the sidewalk!
