Tornado Warning

Well, I'm not going to tell you what we went to the theatre to see, but Mama, me, and several of our closest and dearest friends were watching the movie when all of a sudden the movie stopped and the lights came on. Walter (owner) came out and announced that a tornado had touched down on Hwy. 11, and he wanted us to move to the back of the theatre under the lower roof (what used to be the balcony above but is now screen #2). So. We did. Before moving, all of a sudden someone plopped down in the seat beside me. "I'm going to sit with you." I looked to my right and saw that my new neighbor was a young lady that I know. "Come on. Follow us." I had Mama go in first and sit beside the wall, then me followed very closely by Whitney. Her mother had called her and told her to get home. I told her to sit right where she was and stay out of her car. Yep. Usurped her dear mama's authority.

I don't know how long we sat and visited and made phone calls to tell relatives where we were in case they had to dig through the rubble to find us. :) Eventually, we all went back to our seats and the movie started again.

So. How did you spend your evening?

Glad to hear things went well after all the "drama". That is one of the things I do not miss about not living in Texas anymore. Hurricanes also. :)

How was the movie? :)
