The storm prince and princess have been watching the skies tonight....

Keeping an eye to the skies...Nick and I are keeping an eye out because we have tornado warnings and they are close. Rt. 57 and I-90...Ricky called from play practice and said that they took the students to the school basement.
I have a long time fear of storms. I get it from my mom- who I found later got it from her mother. When we were young and there was a storm, my mom would take us to the basement and pull out the couch and have us sit behind it. My grandma had a clear plastic bag for storms that had the deed to her house, her will, and her bank book. She would take that with her to the basement. In later years, I would take the kids to the basement and lay out a blanket for games and we would play with flashlights.
Now, as an adult, I can NEVER sleep when there is a storm. I feel my heart beat faster.
St. Peter is playing bowling, there he goes...another strike.
I am praying that this passes quickly so that we can get some sleep tonight.

Uummmm-yeah. I know the feeling. Isn't it fun trying to stay calm so the kids don't freak when in truth, you want to run and hide in the tub? BWHAHAHAH!
