Sirens and Storms and KIDS....oh My!!!!

Last Sunday.....it all started out as an innocent day! The sun was shinning, my hoomans were happy and all was well in our world. My pups got an invite to go wake boarding on the lake with their friends. They got the big A-OK from my mom and dad! Woohoo I had them all to myself!! Oh what joy we had just hanging out and cuddling and playing and snoozing until..........MOM decided they needed to go to the evil WAL-MART!!!









CAUTION CAUTION
THIS IS A SCARY SIREN!!!
This along with many others started going off all around the county while mom and dad were in Wal-Mart!! They were just minding their own business when they were forced to go back to shoes and crafts for safety!!!! They had locked them in, there was no way out!!! They were frantic! Can any of you guess why??? OUR PUPS WERE ON THE LAKE!!!!!!!! Our pups are only 10 & 12!!! Mom said dad looked like the guy from the cell phone commercial with phones at both ears.....ya know the one "can you hear me now?" He was pacing around our "safety" area trying to get in touch with our pups friends. Actually he just wanted to talk to anyone!!!!!!! Mom was sitting on the floor praying (but she said she knew we were all ok) !!! They were in lock down for ONE HOUR!!!
THE SCOOP FROM THE PUPS SIDE: Now don't get scared all you hoomans out there cuz some parts can get scary. Don't worry our hooman pups were VERY smart AND brave. Where they were "wake" boarding, tubing and boating having a great time as always. Our pups love the water. When on the lake it is hard to hear those sirens and this storm came upon us FAST!!! The scene.....3 adults...4 kids....1 boat.....1 big big lake......1 ginormous storm with high winds!!
As soon as the adults saw the situation they got as close to shore as possible 10 feet or so, and had the kids jump to safety to the J-mans house. They swam with all their might & got to the outer room of his house. Ooops it was a hot tub room (are you scared yet?) full of windows. All the doors to the house were LOCKED!! So my girl pup decided that the hot tub was empty and they would get in that with the cover over it!!! Just then my girl, boy and their friend saw THE WAKE BOARD outside in the storm so they ran out to "rescue" it!!! Silly pups. As soon as they did and got back in the room a ginormous and I mean ginormous tree fell right where they were STANDING!!! {SIDE NOTE AGES OF THE KIDS 12, 10,10 & 7} My pups decided they HAD to find a way in that house, remember all doors are locked. The boy pups found a door flung wide OPEN, that wasn't open before. Yes it was still locked and no there were NO windows open in the house. Finally they were in shelter and stayed safe until it was over and the adults could get to them. Their friends' parents got caught on the lake trying to get the boat out of the water. Everyone ended up safe. Oh yes there really is SO SO much more we could tell you but it makes mawmy nervous to talk about it. So we will stop here! No parent had a heart attack but panic attacks were had by the moms!!!!
This is what happened down the street from where my pups were. The house is a few blocks over. The tree is in another area but it is an example of the tree that fell in the yard where my pups were standing! Thank you for hanging in there with me while I told you our scary story!!

This is Willow your friendly news reporter signing out for today!

Hey Willow,
My, we're glad the hoomans & hooman pups survived the bad storm. Gosh, seems like everyone is having this horrible weather like we are in Iowa. The winds are just awful. We lost the top of a hickory tree & 1/3 of our HUGE maple tree that is over 100 years old & the neighbor next door lost their maple tree too. Very scawwieee stuff. Hope you stay safe!!
Luv & Wirey Hugs!
