I am so tired, did not get much sleep at all last night.
The bad storm that devastated some parts of Mississippi and Alabama came in over the Tampa Bay area around 12:30 AM this morning. Severe lightning, strong, sustained winds.
It finally got so bad I actually went up and prepared an emergency bag in case we had to take shelter in the bath tub (you are suppose to hide out in something like a bath tub, preferably in an interior room with no windows in case of tornadoes).
I packed our passports and my alien registration card as well as a copy of the home insurance and my camera. I also had some clothes at the ready. It was that bad!
Not exactly easy to sleep when you think your roof might get ripped off at any minute! But, still, both Sarah and Ken slept like babies!!!
I watched the news this morning and saw that my worries had been well founded; there were a few wrecked buildings and roofs torn off in the area...
I am very glad nothing happened, but it was nerve wracking for sure!
