We Interrupt 4th Hour....

What excitement today! We had a tornado drill and had to go to the basement for about 22 minutes. The city we live in does not typically have tornado's as we live in kind of in a bowl, but the surrounding townships have had tornado's in the past.

The kids were just looking out the window discussing how dark the sky had gotten on this rainy day when the EAS alarms started ringing. It was a good drill as I gave instructions and everyone followed them carefully and completely. We sat down stairs and talked about weather and how to respond in emergencies. (We also sorted some laundry and started a load of towels. LOL! ) A few years ago my oldest son had to prepare an emergency kit for school that we kept in the basement. It needs to be updated a bit as we have grown by 2 kids, so I guess 6th grade will be doing that this week.

We now return to our regularly scheduled class.

I can't believe you did laundry during a tornado warning. You're a serious homeschool Mom if I've ever met one, LOL.

Glad y'all are OK.
