holy tornado

Last night a tornado hit Park Slope. Trees were/are down everywhere! We were at the playground and got home just in time. Rain was coming in the window horizontally. Thunder and lightning were intense. Just when I said, "Let's go to the window and see what's going on" to them, I heard the radio announcer say, "You should stay away from windows and stay in the center of the building or go to the basement." But as soon as it started, it was over. We went down 6th Ave. to see the fire engines and broken down trees.

When I asked Jackson to comment about the storm, he simply said, " I don't like thunder."

that is crazy! jackson, cousin sammy doesn't like thunder either! sometimes different things help when he is scared of the thunder ranging from... god, is moving the furniture (that's what darin's grandparents use to say) to it's just tut tuting in the sky.
