I live just outside Birmingham, AL. I just had all my weather alerts go off letting me know that we were under a tornado warning. A tornado warning a week before Thanksgiving. Needless to say after my area got hit by the tornado on April 27th, 2011, I freak out. My husband was at Walmart buying groceries with my mother in law, my kids are at school and I am here at home. Thankfully we are all ok, but I still can’t feel my toes (from all the rapid pacing).
I have set up a ton of weather alerts. I want to make sure that I always know if we are going to have a tornado in our area. My alerts called, emailed and texted me. And our new home alarm system even started sounding it’s alarm. We bought it because it alerts us if there is a tornado warning in the area.
I took the picture above from my front yard after the tornado circulation had moved away from us (I am not crazy enough to stand in my front yard during an actual tornado warning.)
