One thing I don't like about Oklahoma... (besides the ice storms)

It was a nice Tuesday morning so I decided to let Duke play in his kennel in our backyard. Then around 2:00 one of the clients at work said that there's going to be a tornado warning here in Edmond starting at 3:00. I rushed home to take Duke inside our house. On my way back to work, the sirens went off and the radio deejays told us to take cover and go to our shelters. I was freaking out because I was still a mile away from work! Anyway, I got to work safely and took cover.


CLICK HERE to see pictures of the damage. I have to take an alternate route to work because of the power lines that have fallen on the roads are not fixed yet. The usual 8 minute drive to work has turned into a 20 minute drive. One of the tornados got too close. It was honestly about a mile from our neighborhood. I guess I could say, I don't mind having to wake up 10 minutes earlier than usual. I just feel so grateful that all of us are safe and that we didn't suffer any damage to our home.
