I was at work monday when we had to evacuate to the basemant with a school full of children. I did get a glimpse of the windows before we ducked down and it was balck outside. When it was all over we asa school were all fine as well as the building and the surrounding areas. Quite a few teachers live in my neighborhood and we started getting calls and texts that the areas we live in was hit very hard. Thankully a kind husband of one of those friends drove by all of our houses and they were safe. Others in my neighborhood had full trees in their houses and cars. Trees blocked the streets and alot of people were and still are out of power. Over all i think it was a good step for the boys b/c it was a very safe exposer to the reality of storms with out terrifying them.
