Oklahoma Weather

Last night was eventful. It is Tornado Season in Oklahoma. That is ALWAYS eventful. Funny thing is, that when you are actually FROM Oklahoma, sometimes it is hard to take tornados as seriously. Funny thing is, I have never taken them serious enough until now. Now I live in an apartment building and that makes tornados a little scarier. I don’t feel QUITE as safe and sound.

As a result, when tornados started to randomly hit around us (within 2-5 miles) we decided it was time to go somewhere that we would not be blown away. We went to the OU dorms and it was....fun…? I don’t really know what it was, I guess it was safe. You feel kind of silly, making sure your tennis shoes are on, grabbing 1 or 2 things that are important for you, knowing that the likely hood of you being the one hit is not that great. But the thing is that it will hit someone and it COULD be you whether likely or not.

In the end we were fine, no damage to our apartment or cars.

We (Britt and two good friends who live in our complex) decided to go and “celebrate” our “survival” with some Passion Berri. ;) It was delicious and a great way to end that evenings excitement.

My heart does go out for the families who had fatalities. There were 4 reported as of this morning and multiple injuries. I am thankful to live in Oklahoma though because people will help people. I remember when the May 3 tornado hit my family volunteered with the Salvation Army for a few days. We were all younger but it was a great experience. I know that will happen again too, people will help. I love Oklahoma!


Sometimes I have this feeling like, “Does anyone even read my blog”. Then, I will be talking to someone and they will say, “I just love reading your blog” or something like that and it shocks me that they even know about it. Blogs are funny things. Most people don’t comment so you really never know who is reading, if anyone. It is easy to feel like you are just writing to cyberspace but I don’t think that is the case.


I hate the feeling of coming to work in the morning and being hungry almost right away. I ate breakfast and yet I feel like my stomach is eating itself. Dumb.

I guess that is enough randomness for today. I am running on a lack of sleep and need to stop here because I cannot be held accountable for what I say. ;)

Happy Tuesday!

PS – Excuse any typos, I am too lazy to go back and check them right now.

I was just contemplating (and thinking of writing a blog post - you got me covered!) about how I didn't take the storm seriously...at all. I was just hanging out outside, being really nonchalant about it talking on the phone. When I heard about all the damage, injury and death it caused...well, all I could do was thank God that despite my nonchalance he spared us from any damage at all!

Just commenting so that you know that I still read your blog. Not that I have that much time to blog myself, but I will blog this weekend, for sure. I might have some interesting news. :)

I read your blog, too! That's funny that you mentioned that because I have thought the same thing, too lol.
