Tornado Experience

Last night was interesting. Power went out around 5-ish. We had our emergency radio out and listening to the weather news.

We let the dogs inside. Kelsie came running in but Diamond took a little more coaxing. She wanted in, but her radio collar has trained her to stay away from the back door so I had to drag her.
