And then the clouds rolled in and we kept getting interrupted to see tornado and heavy thunderstorm warnings. There sure seem to be a lot of those here lately which I understand is a little unusual for this part of the country.
We watched the weather move its way in our direction. I checked out the new NOAA weather radio and cranked it up. Sure enough it said we had 17 minutes until the 'conditions that may produce a tornado' would be right on top of us.
We moved quickly and got our important documents, wallets, radio and headed for the nearest cinderblock bathhouse and restroom. We pulled up right next to our neighbors Jim and Alice who arrived a couple of minutes before we did.
We headed for the men's restroom since the ladies restroom was already full of people.
Oops! Note to self ~ announce your arrival when you gather in the restrooms to wait out a tornado warning!
It was anti-climatic. We did not see any high winds or dark funnel clouds. It was rainy and cloudy but that was it. Which is fine with us. The good thing is that we feel as if we are learning how to be safer and what to do in those kind of emergencies.
We got back to the Roadrunner, opened it up a bit and the rain drizzled on and off most of the rest of the afternoon.
Pam was at her best cooking up 'chicken schnitzel'.
Pam wanted me to mention how she has increased her counter space a bit. She removes both corian countertop pieces from the top of the 3 burners and leans them up against the wall out of the way until the kitchen is cleaned up.
That is it for this edition of the Roadrunner Chronicles. Hope you have a great week!
