19|2013 Excitement Continues… (May 27 – June 2, 2014)
Our time in Las Vegas continued this week. It was odd timing for a vacation with us having to deal with all the damage from the tornado but the trip was already paid for and we didn’t really have much we could do at our home during those days.
The red, convertible Mustang added to the fun for the trip and I think Keith really enjoyed it! In a few days I’ll put some photos on flikr to share.
When we got back we visited with our neighbors about all the damage from the tornado. As we were walking around one neighbor’s house I felt eyes watching me and looked up to see their cat ,Lucky, who had found a place to survey all of his damaged domain. He seemed at ease and making the best of an unfortunate situation.
On Friday, May 31, there was another tornado, high winds, hail and flooding. The tornado sirens went off in Moore at least 4 times in that time period so we spent 2 1/2 hours in our storm shelter! It was pretty frightening especially on the heels of such a devastating tornado only 11 days earlier. Keith played silly games and made videos on his iPhone to pass the time, which was also entertaining to me. Thankfully, we didn’t have any significant additional damage and everyone in my family was unharmed.
Truly, the varied excitement we’ve had has been exhausting and I’m ready for less excitement.
