Our picnic cancelled, due to tornado and flash flood warnings!

Memorial day started off as planned.  A trip to target to buy undies, (My Little Pony ones for Ana and Planes ones for me); a few things for swimming and a picnic lunch.

On the way home it started raining, and Ana wasn't feeling very well anyway so the picnic was cancelled.

Which was actually kind of a good thing because later that afternoon we were in Mum's closet with the iPad and leftover picnic goodies keeping safe from the tornado warning.

Abuela and Iggy joined the closet party on Skype.

Now there's a flash flooding weather alert so we're not going to be going anywhere for the rest of the day!

It’s not over yet.  Now there’s a flash flooding weather alert so we’re not going to be going anywhere for the rest of the day!  Stay safe neighbours!

    Papi, Rafa should have also said to you we’re safe, don’t worry! Mum will keep texting you to stay in touch.

  2. Abuela Says:

    Have a get well soon hug, Ana. It was, as always, a special Skype – a bonus being able to talk with you all. Iggy is terribly envious of those plane undies, Rafa.

    Oh my gosh!!! Stay safe friends.

  4. Abuela Says:

    Just seen the update. Take care. Be safe my loves.

      Thanks we’re safe. The storm is easing here and our neighbourhood looks fine (not that we’re going out for a close inspection!).

  5. John Faris Says:

    Glad to wake up and find the drama is all over.

    • Rafa Says:

      The flash flood warning is in place until just after 9pm (and it’s 6:30pm now) but we’re looking pretty good where we are and have no need to go out so we’ll just stay put!

    The closet looks like a good place to be Rafa…
