we're not in kansas anymore

This is what I came home to today.

Our poor little harvest man was blown off his hay bale by the forceful winds. I knew right away this meant the weather was serious.
I had been hearing all day on the radio about severe storms that were headed our way. Yesterday a tornado touched down pretty close to our house and the threat of another tornado makes me pretty nervous.
As I am typing this, the television has been taken over by weather reports. Another tornado touched down tonight near our house and caused a 7 car crash and shut down a highway.
Don't get me wrong, I love thunder storms. But natural disasters? Not so much. This is a little too much for me.
When it rains, it pounds the ground. It has been raining on and off since about 3pm. I took some photos at my house when the rain first started. And then when there was a break in the rain, I went outside to take some shots of the "damage." So far we have been lucky that it isn't bad.
All evening an emergency plan has been running through my head. I would grab that cats and Jack and head to the laundry room That is the most central area of our house that is a smaller room. Also there are no windows and none of the walls are shared as outside walls.

Jack is not a fan of the rain. He doesn't like to go out into the yard when it's wet and muddy.

One good thing about the weather, I got to wear my new Marc Jacobs rain boots!

Cool photos. I like the one with the rain on the window pane.

Ohh that looks scary, but at least you get to wear cute footwear, haha!
Your dog is super adorable--makes me miss mine ever more!

Tornados are scary! I hope you weren't planning on a Wizard of Oz theme for Halloween. Although Jack would look pretty cute as a cowardly lion ;)

My dogs are scared of the rain too and get pretty depressed this time of year. They're more human than dog really.
