Dear Noah....funnel clouds spotted everywhere......
and we were driving right in the middle of it! We had taken a drive over to find the hotel you will be taking the state mandated tests at.......and on the way back we stopped at grandma and grandpa L's to visit with them. We left and it was getting stormy but we did not think too much about it. We headed to get you some pizza at Domino's before heading to grandma C's house and then home. We thought we would take pizza to grandma C's house for supper since we had not seen her for awhile since you have been sick.
Well....while waiting for the pizza grandma L. called us on the cell phone and told us a tornado had been spotted and was coming our way and to get the pizza and get out of there. Grandma L' and C's tornado warnings in their towns went off......so we get the pizzas and have to head back TOWARDS the areas funnel clouds were reported first.....before making another turn to go in a different direction towards home.....
Seems no place was safe......soon the rain and storm were right on top of us. The winds were unbelievable....the rain......it was crazy! You started to cry.....I called grandma C. and told her we were going to just keep trying to drive on home.....as we would be far enough north it sounded like to miss the funnel clouds or possible tornadoes....though we still had tremendous storms!
So she said yes to go on home.....the tornado siren was going off there.......she would get in the closet......so on we went listening to the radio's weather report the entire way. It sounds like the funnel clouds and storm where all around us. It was crazy and we were so glad to get home!
You had a dream then about tornadoes......I will write about that tomorrow.
For now I am thankful we made it home.....everyone was safe.......and if any tornado actually touched down......not much damage was done!
