It was scary to say the least. The sirens were going off in our neighborhood and I quickly ran to the closet under the stairs of our home. Unfortunately, I had to get in my car to go pick up our little one at school.

Facebook and Twitter were frenzied with updates of people letting loved ones know they were okay and out of harm's way. This was a photo that was posted on Twitter of the tornado that touched down near someone's backyard.
After several hours of waiting at both the elementary and the high school, I got home safe and sound with both of the boys and my husband walked in shortly afterwards as he ducked into his car early and came home. We joined efforts to make dinner. I made cheesy potatoes following this recipe from Pinterest and he grilled some chicken as the evening moved on as if nothing had happened. I ended my day with a couple of homemade cosmos.
I know you all might not have tornadoes, but some of you have hurricanes, earthquakes, volcanoes, among other natural disasters.
How do you prepare or deal with the natural disasters in your area?
