I'd actually been oblivious to the weather until Daughter called me in the middle of my work day. This was a bit disconcerting since she NEVER calls me during the workday, she knows I can't talk while trying to teach my little darlin's. I did a quick I-can't-talk-to-you-text to which she responded saying that Son-in-law had told her that tornadoes were all over Big D and possibly headed our direction.
Once firmly and safely in the comfort of my home, I breathed a sigh of relief, I'd made it home before the rain began; it was going to be a doozie. No sooner had I exhaled that sigh than I inhaled again and held my breath, no power. Great.
As I was gathering lighting paraphernalia, the storm was raging outside. With nothing else to do, no power no Internet, I got out the Canon and began shooting...from the safety of the house of course.
