Severe thunderstorms have ripped across our region. Weather reports call for possible tornadoes and large hail. Witnesses report multiple funnel cloud sightings. Trees have toppled, and power is out in many areas.
So, like any responsible folks, we headed for cover during the latest instance. We camped out in the basement, while storm warnings filled the TV airwaves, and the local sirens blared.
Then this happened.
“I’m hungry,” moaned my kid.
“The tornado warning says we have to stay down here for another 38 minutes,” I answered.
“Let's order a pizza,” she said.
