Tornadoes, Earthquakes, and Hurricanes - holy cow!

Alright, Mother Nature...simmer down now! You are really starting to freak me out.

I think I have a little PTSD from the tornadoes in April...

Then with the random earthquake the other day and now making preparations for "Irene" - it's all pretty unsettling.

Noah has said to me several times - "But Mom, you said dare weren't dundertorms here!"

I did tell the kids that there wouldn't be as many bad storms or tornadoes up here. I didn't even think about hurricanes. And in my defense, this is supposed to be the worst storm this area has seen in 60 years - how was I to know?

Seriously...I am starting to feel jinxed. I'm sure that we are going to lose power so I will definitely check in when things are back up and running.

To all my East Coast friends - stay safe!

And Mother Nature - give it a rest...please!

*Holy crap...when I posted this just now, I noticed the date being the 27th. It was April 27th when the storms hit in AL. My heart just fell into my stomach...told ya, PTSD. Should actually start calling it Post-Tornado Stress Disorder.

I am glad Irene ended up being not too bad. And yes Tornados are freaky- an F-5 destroyed my town when I was almost ten

I am relieved too. Minor flooding can be handled, but tornadoes are completely unforgiving. How awful to hear that happened when you were a kids, Emmy. So, so scary.
