Most of my blogging family knows that papa and mama live on a church campground. besides all the other facilities here there are approximately 175 homes like ours that people call home. We like it here - love it - we feel secure.
Yesterday at 4:45PM that security was shaken. Suddenly the camp warning siren went off - a Tornado Warning for the area had been issued - a funnel cloud had been sighted. I already had the TV on and was aware of the warning. I wasn't overly concerned, it wasn't that close in my opinion so we stayed on the main floor. Besides the Notre Dame vs. Michigan football game was on. The siren stayed on as a warning for about 20 minutes - after a few minutes it didn't bother me, i just put the siren noise in the back of my mind. I did notice that Carol (blogger CDC Version) was driving her vehicle on the street warning people to take cover immediately. I waved through the front window, I don't think she saw me. Her husband Paul is the director for the camp.
I have heard the warnings before, we have lived here 14 years, no tornado's here yet. I think we can relax. Yesterday is gone - the threat is past.
Kind of like the attitude we have about Christ returning someday. We have heard the warnings, almost like sirens in the background. No rush! No worry - it hasn't happened - yet.
