We were watching Modern Family and were excited because they were going to take a trip in a motor home. The show was interrupted due to the storms. The radar was lit up with red all over. We found our city on the map and it looked like we would be okay. Mama had her tablet out and watched the radar from there. A tornado warning came out for Tarrant county but it was to the south of us. Dad said it looked like we would be okay. He got on the phone with a friend and Mama went into the bedroom to watch the radar. They said a hook echo was showing up on the radar. Mama looked up the location on her tablet and it was near us. She showed Dad while he was on the phone and he hung up. He had never seen a hook echo that looked that bad. He said "Get the dogs dressed!" We had to put our collars and leashes on. Mama grabbed her purse. Dad grabbed the tablet and our WI-FI and we ran to the car. The sirens were going off then. We drove the few blocks to the parking garage and saw lots of people we knew there. Everyone had their dogs and cats. It was almost like a party. Miss Woe was there with her people. We stayed until the warning ended around 9:15 p.m.
We say it was late night, but it was only 8:30 p.m. when we left home. Our bedtime is 9 p.m., so that is late night for us. BOL We were up until about midnight because more storms came through. It rained really hard. Our windshield leaked big time. We were fine though and a tornado never showed up here.
Today, we sat on our patio, but it was a mess. It was wet and lots of leaves had piled up. It looks like it must have flooded last night. I insisted we go out and I even laid in the wet grass for a while. Scout wasn't pleased about being outside.
