We had us some storms in Oklahoma yesterday. Nothing surprising. We are quite used to it. The hubby had it all under control and would let us know when we needed to head two houses down to our neighbor’s shelter. We had at least ten minutes to spare before it was near us…until we looked out our back window and saw some clouds lowering in a circular motion. Sweet mercy. I got my shoes on, grabbed the boys, frantically put Seth’s shoes on, and started running towards the neighbors, in the rain, mind you, with Seth in tow. He was flailing about like a little rag doll and laughing the entire way there. Just before we hit their driveway, a big burst of rain and wind slammed us like there was no manana. Once we arrived and were looking all loverly and everything, I realized that the barrette, it was no longer in my hair. The winds, friends, blew it out. I found it on the way home after the storms passed. Gosh, I love severe weather season in Oklahoma.
