This happened to our apartment last night:

The important things:

  • Babyface, Puppyface and I are all uninjured. Actually, so is everyone in the building, miraculously.
  • Renter’s insurance is the best $150/year you’ll ever spend. That $150 is the difference between us making one call to our agent and them saying, “We’ll take care of it.” and one of our insurance-less neighbors crying because she lost everything.
  • Please go make a jump kit. Especially if you have pets. Without the stuff we had for Puppyface in the jump kit, we would have been majorly screwed.
  • Go hug your family.

Not sure when I’ll be back writing here. We, amazingly, have power (it just came back on), but our apartment is considered not livable, so we need new digs. I’ll check in soon. Meanwhile, check out this crazy picture of wood splinters being hurtled through the air so fast that they embedded themselves into our wooden patio chairs. As terrifying as that was, tornadoes are pretty fascinating.

  1. I’ve never commented before but I follow (and love) your blog, and I’m so shocked and sad that this happened to you. Support is truly vital during trauma, and I want you to know that even people like myself who don’t know you are rooting for you. I’m thankful that you and your family are safe, and I wish you the very best in getting back on your feet.

    PS: There is now a note on my white board reminding me to make a jump kit for my fiance, myself, and our cat. Just in case.

    We spent Tuesday evening in a storm shelter, but had no damage. I’m so glad that you are safe and I hope you find a new place with ease.
