A huge line of storms went through last night. A tornado was spotted 5 miles west of us, so we took shelter in the yucky basement. The muggy, wet basement held 2 panting and freaked out dogs, 2 cats, me, corey, and a half asleep baby who we'd snatched out of the crib while sleeping. The wind was howling. I ran upstairs once to look out the window and see what was up. The rain and wind seemed to be swirling and all at once a huge blast of wind came and laid all the trees in the distance over. I screamed and ran back downstairs, cats were right behind me.
In the end, all was well except for many hours without power. The storm snapped a healthy tree in half just about 150 feet from our house, so I think we were pretty lucky. There were trees down in the park, so as soon as we got out of the basement Corey had to head over there to cut them out of the roadways.
Got to love spring/summer in Indiana!
