Glad your family is safe ketsuko.

Growing up, I would start getting pit-of-the-stomach nervous every spring
I was terrified growing up living in Central Texas. Every spring there was no shortage of warnings with those lovely sirens. The sirens that I
suspect some brain specialist helped make the tone for so it hijacks the primal part of our brain to go "GET TO COVER OR WE'RE F-ED". And the storms
surrounding it are feroucious, so with the high winds and then a power outage, you just don't know how close you are to the real action..... But you
know it's bad if everything goes calm for a second.
As an adult I've been guilty at trying to sneak a peek when it's going on, though they're not as dangerous here in VA.
The one thing that always got me is how indiscriminate they are. You can see a house with a few shingles missing less than a hundred feet to one that
left it's foundation. So odd to see those next to each other but both still in the scar left on earth.
