Last night at 10:30 p.m. our Weather/All Hazard’s Alert radio told us to take shelter. It got dark. It got windy. Abby ran through the dog door and out into the back yard to bark at the storm. Buster hid under a chair. Our cats, Simba and Biggs paced nervously, staying close to DH and I. Kitty was out in the woods somewhere.
We turned our television to our local satellite weather channel. The announcer said a tornado had touched down and was 16 minutes away. Our Police Scanner reported a couple calling in on a cell phone phone saying they were trapped under the rubble of their house.
DH watched out the back door and saw nothing in the dark.
It was a long night.
This morning we found fiberglass insulation from homes in Nappanee in our front yard. According to the news some of Nappanee’s debris was found in Constantine, Michigan…40 away.
Here are some pictures of Nappanee. I may have more this weekend.
