severe weather rattles indy
Last night I did something unusual: I took Cecilia to the grocery store. I've made a habit of going at night, after The Girls are in bed; it's quicker and easier that way. But last night she was telling me what kind of popsicles to get, and I had no idea what she was talking about or if they really exist. So I decided to go right then and bring her along; that way, she'd see what they had and not kick up a fuss if I brought home the wrong thing (in fact, she could pick them out herself...).
As we were leaving around 7:30, a wall of ominous black clouds was bearing down from the West. Although it's just a few blocks from home, a downpour was just beginning as we pulled up, and hte radio was issuing a tornado warning, so into the basement we went.
Although the tornado seems to have been uncomfirmed, severe thunderstorms did indeed roll through the city last night, downing tree limbs and swelling the local
creeks rivers. For us, though, the mose immediate effect was it delayed The Girls' bedtime about a half-hour or so.
