The storm is getting closer!

Well the storm is getting closer and so we went through everything in the Emergency Packpacks and storage. Found out that we didnt't have any batteries or not that much non perishable food so... Jeff and Brad went to the store and got a few more things. We have areas right around us that are getting evacuated so we are trying to make sure that things are ready and that we are keeping the news on. Until then we are going to just sit still and hope that the electricity stays on.

Krystal was saying that she loves the weather channel and that she and her Dad used to go out on the porch and watch the storms come in. I asked if she by some chance liked the movie Wizard of Oz, she said Yes, just like I knew she would. I on the other hand had terrible fears as a child of storms, floods and high winds. I actually would stay awake at night wondering if our house was going to flood or blow away. I actually hated the movie Wizard of Oz and tried not to even show it to my kids. :)
But I am getting better and braver as I get older...thank goodness. So for now we are going to just do alot of bonding as a family! :) So at least we are together and safe and we are grateful!
