The kids both had baseball games tonight in two different places. I took the Bean to her game and the Hubs took Scorch to his. About 20 minutes into the game a siren went off warning us of impending bad weather and we were told to clear the fields immediately and to head to our cars. Now, living in NY, our severe weather is nothing like we’ve seen out of the mid-west but after seeing the footage out of OK from yesterday, my first reaction was to scoop up the Bean and run for our car as fast as I could. It was this immediate, irrational panic- and even that was only a fraction of what those in Moore must have felt. I’m both horrified and drawn to all the news coverage out of OK- my hearts and prayers are with all those family affected.
I’m sure you know about all the ways to help those affected by the recent storms, but if not, here’s a great list of ways you can make a difference.
