Stuck in the Bathroom.........

We are. UGH.....ok, it happened this way. We had known there had been tornado warnings for this area, and my dad was outside in the carport, while it was raining(of course, he wasn't wet), and a huge gust of wind came up. Right before my dad came in to tell us to get in the closet, my mom yelled, "JOY!!!!!". Dad came running in, and told us to get in the closet. Well, mom said the bathroom, and I rushed back to the bathroom, jumped in at top speed, and put a pillow in my lap. Mom did the same, but she didn't jump. My heart started racing, and I started shaking all over. Dad went and got the cell phone, two home phones, and mom's computer. I started crying, and we started praying. Our bench is knocked over, the Hibiscus is gone down, my grandparents' trash is knocked over, and our cooler is all the way in the next yard. Pray for us. Pray for my brother in the tornado zone, pray for my grandparents on the road. Once the wind let up a smidge, my dad allowed me to get my computer, and look outside right quick. Dad brought an apple for us, and he went in and out, checking the weather, getting food, and Bambi.....she kept getting out. We've been praying for everybody. PRAY!!!!!!! Mom and I are still in the bathroom, and dad went out to get the car ready and put stuff in the car. He actually just came in.....and went out again. Mom just called Colt and he's in town. Thank GOD. I just put Bambi in here with me. We will be leaving in a little while. Pray.

Until next time,

Blessings, Joy =D

How scary! I am so happy that you are ok...and that your mom has talked to Colt. It's neat that you have your laptop with you so you can let us know what's happening.
