must be springtime in Iowa / by jen geigley

If you live anywhere in the midwest/tornado alley, you know that it's never a good thing when they day is too warm, too still, and the sky starts to look greenish.
 Or you look outside, and your back yard looks like this.
But your front yard looks like this. March is a little early for the whole tornado thing, even for us. In fact, Bo and Lotus were playing outside when the first sirens went off.  I've lived here my whole life, but sirens still give me chills.
We all just hung out on the couch with our various forms of technology until all the warnings and various waves of sirens had passed. Must be springtime in Iowa. (Like Bo said earlier today, when aren't we in a tornado watch?)
No worries though. We're fine and we're used to this. It's supposed to snow this weekend, after all.
