The sky is falling, the sky is falling!

Riddle me this, Batman. If your husband called you and said, “There is a tornado in the area. If it starts to rain and get windy out you need to take our son to the basement asap.” How would you respond?

I responded by packing a bag after having read this post on Friday. I mean, clearly, it was a bad omen. Even if tornadoes are rare in DE. I also grabbed a pile of pillows, blankets, baby toys, baby, dog, and my iPad, because by this time, the wind was blowing and the rain was dumping out of the sky.

And to the basement we headed.

And stayed for about 30 minutes.

While NOTHING happened outside. Except for the rain and the wind.

After about 15 minutes of the hunkering down, Techy called to tell me he was coming home.

And when he got home and found me under the stairs in our basement with the baby, dog, bag of supplies, blankets, and pillows, do you know what my loving husband did?

He called his best friend to laugh about my paranoia.

Now, let me ask you again. If your husband calls you and tells you to take your baby to the basement because there is a tornado in the area, what would you do?

I would've punched him square in the nose for laughing. In.the.nose. And if I missed the nose, I would've gotten the jaw. And then I would've taken a picture and posted it on my blog.

I would have done exactly what you did! Better safe then sorry. As far as the husband goes...I probably would have just cried...I am really good at that these days!
