Tornadoes? Hurricanes? Earthquakes even?

Usually the worst we get in Maine is ice storms, and that can be terrible, but having an actual tornado warning in MAINE this week was really weird. We know people in Mass where the tornado struck, too. And of course, Missouri and elsewhere have had the worst of it. Sending prayers and positive thoughts out to everyone in affected areas, and

We had several here in Raleigh, nc too. Luckily we were fine and all of our friends are too. We can drive down the belt line and see the devastation, though. The main thing is my older daughter is now scared anytime there is a storm. She keeps asking about tornadoes and if one is going to kill us. It made an impact on her!

Sorry about it traumatizing your daughter! Heck, we had a tornado warning here in Maine this summer, and the weather was really weird, and I was listening to the radio trying to decide if we needed to get in the basement, packing stuff up in case, and for a while, the kids were scared/excited every time it rained.
