I thought we had dodged the scary weather but probably about 3:30 the sirens began going off. Chad, Nicole and Addie had gone to Joplin and Neosho today and they called to see if I wanted them to come by. I told them no . . I was still being careful about being around people. Then they called on the way home and said the weather was getting bad and the weatherman on their app was expected sirens to start going off soon. They were about 3 miles from my house so they said “We’re coming to stay in your basement til this passes.”
Before they got here, the sirens stated going off so I ran out and opened the garage door so they could bring their car in. We all went to the basement, kept our distance and I hope no one was sick.
I think commonsense dictates that you don’t risk your kids being in a tornado to keep from exposing yourself to a virus when none of them appear sick and there was plenty of room for us not to stay well over 6′ apart. You never know but I wasn’t going to take a chance on them being caught up in a tornado.
In the end, the all clear was given about 4:15 and they left.
