Getting Out of Town

The morning was filled with doing coffee stuff for church and getting there early enough to make it for the early class. Then we got home, had lunch, packed like mad, and as we were doing that a thunderstorm hit. We ran stuff out to the van and when we were most of the way there, the Longmont City outdoor sirens went off. The news and radio that were supposed to be "local" weren't showing what was going on, so I finally called the fire department's information line and they said that a tornado had touched down in Erie, about ten miles to the East, and was headed south.

Not the best way to begin a trip, but we managed once we knew what to avoid.Collapse )
