Yesterday we had some bad storms here in NC, including some tornadoes touching down. We were completely unaware until a neighbor came by to stay in our first floor apartment. He lives on the third, and his parents had him stop by since they weren't home. Good thing because it made us aware of the storms coming our way! There are already more watches for tonight, though there are warnings around Charlotte, just a couple hours away. Hopefully the watches and thunder storms will be the extent of it, but we have yet to see.
Ironically, just the day before...I made a comment about tornadoes in North Carolina... I was registering Camden for school in Holly Springs, where we are going to move next month, and we were going on a little tour so Camden could see the school. I made a comment about how wonderful all the natural light was from the huge windows. The lady with us agreed but said it wasn't great for security. Understood. She said they had a hard time finding places to do tornado drills (but they DID find places, in case you're wondering). I remarked that you don't hear about tornadoes in NC very often. I'm from KY, and even though it's not part of tornado alley, we have our share of storms there. But I haven't heard hardly anything about them being in NC.
Guess I spoke too soon. They arrived the very next day.
