Stormy Weather

The sky grew dark... black actually. The wind begin to blow and then the rain came. More rain than we have seen in 20 years in Orange County. It wasn't long before my family was calling me at work about a tornado warning... I looked online and begin to get nervous.

People from other states and even in northern CA often laugh at our view of weather but most don't understand that our cities are built for earthquakes not tornado's or floods. So it's much worse than the numbers show.

Here are just a few photos of what we've been seeing in the Orange County.

The tornado hit ground not far from me and stunned everyone here since we've never seen a tornado hit in this area!

(after the unheard of tornado hit at one of my favorite beaches)

As I sit here, tucked inside safe and sound, I have my stormy weather essentials. They don't include umbrellas, flashlights, candles or an escape route to a shelter... but they make it easier for me to get through the day. :)

Ginger Ale, Springtime in Paris CD (A MUST) and a White Chocolate Mocha.
I'm responsibly prepared for the 4th storm to hit today...

Now that's MY kind of prepared, lol! Springtime ANYWHERE sounds really good, lol.

I'm holed up cleaning my craft room so that I can get started on some gifts for a baby shower.
