It's been raining here a lot these days, we've had several tornadoes too. Frown

1. Do you seek shelter when you have severe warnings, Or do you like to watch the storms?

2. Have you ever reacted recklessly and ignored the warnings?  Surprised

3. Do you know how to swim? Cool

4. Have you ever been without electricity because of stormy weather?  Yell

5. Have you ever used a wind up flashlight?  Undecided

6. Do you keep emergency food in case you can't cook?  Smile

I LOVE watching the storms, but if it is getting close, I will definitely go hide in the basement!

2. Have you ever reacted recklessly and ignored the warnings?  Surprised

Not thunder storms/tornados, but I have known to ignore snow storm warnings a time or two ...

3. Do you know how to swim? Cool

Yes.

4. Have you ever been without electricity because of stormy weather?  Yell

Yes. 

5. Have you ever used a wind up flashlight?  Undecided

Yes, on camping trips. 

6. Do you keep emergency food in case you can't cook?  Smile

Not necessarily emergency food, but I always have a few cans of stuff that does not require cooking.  And most of my tools are manual - i.e. no electric can opening.  Even have a hand-crank coffee grinder.  Cool
