About 830 tonight my cell phone went nuts and an automatic alert came on. My entire county was under a tornado warning within minutes of the storm moving in.
I have lived in Michigan for 20 years, I know the drill. Especially since I live in an apartment complex.
Bean, however, never saw it coming. In 90 seconds I got jacket, keys, shoes & had my runbag (emergency bag + other essentials) ready, and had put together an emergency bunny kit. Threw the bunny kit (bottle of water, jar of pellets & his Cheez-Its) AND the bunny into the tomato box I brought him home in.
We spent the next 3 hours ( and 4 new warning, each extending the time) hiding in the basement with the other residents. At one point there was 2 touchdowns within miles of us.
It was scary.
I huddled over the top of the box with my upper body. I had all the slits I made in it covered with his light blanket. I just kept whispering to him.
He knew something was going down. He was wound tight as a spring, but stayed pretty still as long as I talked to him.
Thank the stars above, we are ok. After the all clear we went on back up.
Bean went and peed on my pillow asap.
It’s the only way he can get even with me.
Tonight, I let it slide. I did cram him into a box for 3 hours.
All is ok now. He’s not mad, weather is better (not good, just better) & this chick is whipped.
Flash Tornado; taken about 6 miles from me.
