“Golf-Ball Sized Hail, Tornado Warning, Severe Weather”

Published April 29, 2014 by The Hip Grandmother


It’s going to be a long night. I sit with my daughter and Victoria in the living room while we watch anxiously at the television telling us that there are cyclonic activity in the atmosphere. Our cell phones have been screaming alerts with ‘severe thunderstorm warnings’ to ‘tornado warning’. All my neighbors have cleaned off their balconies and patios in preparation for this storm. It’s so empty out there. The weather channel sends updates on which counties are going to be effected from this storm. Unfortunately we are right in the middle of the storm. Thats to say that the bitch is heading right for us.

My daughter, cradling her baby, is scared. The weather station keeps prolonging the tornado warnings which is kind of scaring me too. Calmly, I prepared a diaper bag for Victoria and a bag for Shaddow in case we have to leave the apartment to run downstairs. Coming from hurricane alley, this is NOT a piece of cake.

Keep us in your prayers..

  • That’s something that I’ve never experienced before – hope you are all safe.
    And thanks for following Ink Smeared Page.

    • I can understand that. It seems everyone is so worried that the Earth will die from all of this…that we will end up similar to Venus. That could be true…or we could end up like Mars. But I believe the Earth is going to be just fine.I believe our civilization is going to die out first. It has nothing to do with the weather. The atmosphere was here before us and it will continue on after us.
