It’s windy outside!

As Mom told you, we live on the plains. It’s very, very windy here. But today it’s windier than I’ve ever heard before. It’s blowing so hard it makes the windows rattle and I can hear it in the vents. It’s pretty scary when it gets this windy. When the wind gets really bad, we have to watch the news to see if there’s going to be a tornado. I’ve never seen a tornado, but Mom says they’re very scary. She said I don’t have to be scared tonight. The wind’s not blowing that hard and it’s not storming (like it was this morning).

Mom said she’s lived here 4 years and there’s never been a tornado real close to the house. But there will be times we’ll have to hide from the wind just in case. The TV will tell us when we have to hide. Mom also got a kit from the ASPCA that lets recue workers know I’m here just in case something happens to the house and she can’t help me.

You know how people say talking about stuff helps? The wind isn’t as scary anymore.
