F2 Tornado…touchdown 1 mile away

I live in the South.

We like our mother nature with a 2 week notice, re: hurricanes.

So yesterday when the whole “in like a lion” roared through hauling some spring showers, it also brought major thunder, lighting, power outages, and something totally unexpected- a tornado.

Right down the street.

It was super fun huddled in the downstairs bathroom with my daughter, my 5 year old niece, and my kitten.

(tornado damage off of Theodore Dawes and Old Pascagoula in Theodore, Al)

I’m sad about the grocery store, restaurant and the hardware store, but not so sad about BP.

Cause. Well, You know.


Hi, y'all! If you got this far, awesome . I am assuming you want to know more about me. I am a *cough* 36 year old mom of 2 great kids, 6 rescue animals and proud wife of my high school sweetheart. This blog is my outlet and allows me to pretend I am a kid at heart. I get to play with glitter and glue, eat lots of sweets (its for the blog, I swear!) and connect with readers and friends. As a blogger I love to share with you- so the rundown is that I am currently reading this, using these for calmer bedtimes, giving away this, and suggesting here if you ever wanted to be a blogger yourself.

  1. So glad we are not there! I hate tornadoes and was just telling John how shocked I was we hadn’t had any, because when we lived in Pcola we always heard about warnings for Mobile. At least we missed this one, but I have a feeling it won’t be the last.

  2. Holy crap, I didn’t realize that was so close to you.
    I’m so glad you guys are OK… we have spent a couple of warnings huddled in our downstairs bathroom with the puppies and some blankets. It is really scary.
    LOVED your BP photo… payback’s a bitch!

    So glad you are ok. I have been through some bad hurricanes and have seen some good tornado conditions too but have never been through one, thank everything. I hope no one was hurt and hope the damage is easily fixed. However, I must say glasses up for Karma giving BP a nice little visit. :-)

  4. when we got Tsuanmi warnings here in Northern California I thought about you….we just dont like weather at all, when it rains people drive like they are driving in land mines and earthquakes only scare us when they are bigger then 4.0

    but you did remind me to call my friend who lives in Mobile to see if she was ok!

  5. First off I agree that is why I live in the South I can deal with the Hurricanes since we know a week in advance it seems LOL.

    Also I totally love your comment, twitter, facebook box!
