We get tornadoes here in this part of Texas, plus tornadoes are sometimes within hurricanes.

We don't have basements here, wish we did but our water table is so high here, you'd have a swimming pool instead of a basement. My downstairs bathroom is the safest room in the house so that is where the Yorkie and I go with some big cushions to put over us. I keep a survival backpack in that room as well.

I truly admire your grit. I got to have my basement in order to weather the storms during tornado season. I wouldn’t want to hang around during a hurricane either.

Of course, I try to forget all about the New Madrid Fault Line. We had an earthquake around 3.5 or 4 a little while back. I didn’t even realize it at first.

I thought that the helicopter was just flying too low and causing some reverberations. By the time I understood what was happening and jumped up - it was over.

Where we are is better than being in St. Louis or New Madrid, but not nearly as good as where I grew up. If I had it to do over, I probably would not have moved here for a lot of reasons only one of which is the weather.
