And my babies cuddled up and snoozed away... feeling safe and secure in the midst of a totally new experience. It all stayed just south of us.

In Indiana, thunderstorms and tornado warnings are a part of spring. Last night, we welcomed spring in for 2010! We live in a bi-level (or raised ranch) home. The main living areas are upstairs- living room, kitchen, bedrooms. We have a garage, laundry room, partial basement, and under stairs storage downstairs. Last night, the weather sirens went off. We tuned in on the TV and our laptops and started searching for more information. We didn't feel scared or seriously threatened- it seemed to be just south of us. Better to be safe than sorry in this sort of thing. So Jeff put out a camping pad that we have- it's thick and cushy- in the small hallway. I got Teagan, Jeff got Zach. And we hunkered down for about 15 minutes. The kids slept through the entire thing. Jeff brought his laptop down so we could keep an eye on the radar.
