That's why I can only laugh at that guys video because it's so bananas he's filming like that. "Bro... we in a tornado!" Haha. That's tshirt worthy. Hilarious!
I'm very happy to know that our first drink doesn't have to be our last and your family is good!
Yikes! Really glad you’re both okay @TheDudeLebowski
and your fams as well. How terrifying! (And yes, Dude, “Bro we in a tornado!!” is hilarious and should be on a tshirt…I’d buy one cuz it would always be accurate for what is going on inside my head haha!)
I love storms! Their chaos, darkness, violence, and power really speak to me and give me a jolt of pure energy. I feel electric and alive when they’re happening. When I lived in the South I used to thrive on the southern storms and downpours, so exciting and just…romantic!
But tornadoes full-on scare the **** out of me and not just cuz of the potential for me to be crushed by a house carrying a little girl and her dog either lol.
When we lived in OK, I would worry every time there were severe thunderstorms. I only experienced one truly terrifying storm where everything had that eerie sense of foreboding you were talking about, Dude, and you could just feel in your bones that something wicked this way comes. The sky turned a weird color, the air felt heavy, everything got quiet, and then the hail started.
I was already home so I gathered up our doggies and got us in a central area of the house in a windowless bathroom under the stairs and just prayed my husband would make it home. He had been at work but he left and was hauling ass trying to get to us and beat the tornado. We were really fortunate cuz it missed where we were in south Tulsa but it hit some areas northwest of us pretty hard.
Being a rural Oklahoma boy, my husband was unfazed, but being Cali girls, the hounds and I were crapping our pantalones!! I miss a lot of things about that area of the country but definitely not the tornadoes, ice storms, and snow. I’m too soft for that **** haha!
Anyway, just thankful you guys are okay.
