Today I’m thankful for two things, tornado drill practice and no tornado. We live in the South and while we can have tornadoes any old time, there seems to be more of them with Spring storms. Well, on Monday, in the wee hours of the morning, like between 3 and 4 AM, we got to practice our tornado drill. Why, there were tornadoes in the area and one watch zone was just a few miles from our house.
Our safe room is the small bathroom on the main floor, which is the most interior room we have. During a tornado alert the Dad places a carrier for each of us in the hallway by the small bathroom. If something gets to close we each are placed in our carriers and we all go in the small bathroom and shut the door. Well, the carriers were out but we didn’t have to go in them this time, we didn’t have a tornado but we did have some pretty wicked storms. Do you know what I did during the wicked storms? I went into the small bathroom and laid by the carrier that’s designated as mine. I know the drill and I was prepared.
I’m thankful we’ve practiced this in the past and have a plan. I’m thankful that we didn’t have a bad tornado in our area. I’m also thankful that the Dad stayed up all night to watch the alerts so he could keep us safe. Oh, and I’m thankful that Simon and Seal didn’t run and hide, they stayed within grabbing range of the peeps.
It pays to be prepared, make sure you have an emergency plan and practice it. What are you thankful for today? Tell us in the comments and then join us for our Thankful Thursday Blog Hop. Remember, adopt cats, we deserve it!!!!! More Forever Homes More Often! Purrrrr! Zip! Later!
