This is what I saw... as I took shelter in a vet clinic on my way to work. One of the scariest moments ever! I thought for sure I was going to die. This picture definitely does not show how dark the clouds were... or how fast they were moving.... holy cow I can't even describe how freaked out I was. It's one thing to be at home - with a basement just below you - and another to be in your car pretty much in the middle of nowhere.

It wasn't just dark clouds that I saw... the reason I ran into this vet clinic was because I saw stuff blowing everywhere... and people RUNNING. So... I figured I had a pretty valid reason to start panicking. And so I panicked.

Thank goodness nothing happened... the worst part of the storm was north of us. And for that I am thankful.

I got to end my day on a really nice note -

Hanging out with this little guy and momma Al :) Wyatt is 6 months old - and he has successfully completed his training in sitting up on his own! woot! And from what I am told... he is quite the rolliepollie. It was definitely a good way to close a crazy long day.
10 more days....
and I'll be on my way to Idaho :)
... and out of this Wizard of Oz weather :

Ten days???? Boo hoo!

I do not like driving in that kind of weather. I dont like that kind of weather anywhere at anytime!

Last summer while hanging out in a hay field we had a huge rotation cloud above us. No shelter other than a pickup. FREAKY!!!!! Like a bunch of dumb heads we stood there and watched it...and took pics! What else were we to do?
We did have a plan of where we were going to lay in a small indention in the ground. Of course it was hard not to totally freak out but had to keep it together so the kids didnt.

All these severe storms around us are getting exhausting!
With tornadoes west of us I will be up late again tonight. : (
