The tornado sirens went off this evening for the first time since we moved to Columbus. We had a tornado warning issued for about thirty minutes, so we got Olivia out of bed, Katie grabbed the flashlight, and we headed to the basement. It's kind of spooky to hear the wail of the tornado siren along with the pounding rain and wind. But Olivia fell asleep on the carpet in our basement, and Katie and I played a boggle-like game together, so it was actually a little bit cozy. And then after the storm passed we came upstairs and finished washing the dishes, as if nothing happened. Kind of weird how the storms here pass so quickly.
