OOOOMMMMGGGG!!! Close2 I am a California girl! Our house is in AL now, where we were stationed in the Army. Last year while my hubby was deployed a tornado came through and it was the SCARIEST thing EVER! I had no idea AL got tornadoes. I had the kids in the bathtub with a mattress over them. The hail dented up my truck and trailer and knocked out a couple windows on the house. Thankfully the actual funnel didn't hit us, but I know it was close. The trees were all sideways. It was an ugly yellow, gray, brownish color outside. I will never forget that - and all I could do was pace around wondering what the heck I SHOULD do.
Now our dilema is figuring where we want to move to for our permanent home. I found a nice place in Perry, OK. After googling I saw there have been tornadoes there this year!!! I crossed that one off the list fast! I would like to go to Missouri, though I know they occur there too. I am lost as to where to go!
Everytime a thunderstorm comes around I have MAJOR anxiety. I read on a tornado forum that someone in OK said they are used to them. HOW IN THE WORLD do you get used to them???????????? One guy told me that you go down into your basement, if it hits the insurance company comes and gives you a new house to put on your basement LOL ...but what about the animals outside? :(
