Rude Awakening

6:25am on a Saturday, and the Tornado Sirens go off.  After Joplin, we take it a bit more seriously, so we wake the kids, hustle off to the basement.  Of course, the TV won't work (dang satelite).  So I'm waiting for the computer to boot up while the weather goes from calm to windy to "under a waterfall" rain.  Ugh.

LOTS of water, but nothing severe.  We've lived out here 22 years, I'll never get quite used to the storms.  Below is the radar image at about the time the sirens went off, the blue dot is us...
