“Here’s the stairs and under here we have a box with our tornado supplies; water, blankets, some snacks...” I’m saying this to the babysitter last year while the impeding storm heads into Oklahoma. I really didn’t have a fear of the weather, but I wanted the kids and the babysitter to be safe while we go on date night.“Where’s the helmets?” she
asked.“Umm…” I think. I’ve never thought I needed helmets for the kids. So I dig around the garage and find ONE bicycle helmet. We have two kids. “I guess one kid will be safe.” as I hand her the helmet.Nothing more that rain hit the house THAT night, but I did change my mind about being weather prepared.This year we have a Storm Shelters Direct tornado shelter installed in the garage with TWO helmets inside. We are weather prepared and now both kids will be safe.
