We were in bed when it hit. My brother came running out of his room and told us to stay in bed and cover our heads with a pillow. It was like between 7:30 and 8 in the morning.

We don't have earthquakes here, which is good. We get a lot of tornado warnings but very rarely ever actual tornadoes... We have had a few nasty ones though. I also used to live near(ish, it was at least 5 km away) a plastic factory or something and there was an explosion and my house shook while I was watching tv. Nothing serious but unexpected.

I've walked along the San Andreas fault. It doesn't look like anything on the outside but it's scary to think of what could happen.

In my head: Always by Building 429
On my mind: my brther getting home from Japan.
In my tummy: Fried egg, sausage and fried potato cake and toast.

Yeah, they can be pretty scary. I couldn't imagine being in a tornado situation, hurricane, or some sort of explosion.

I guess no one is safe from anything. Tornadoes, floods, hurricanes, wildfires. We live in a scary world.

What's scary is having no place to go in a tornado.

Basements or bathtubs.

Alberta is generally pretty safe (no hurricanes, earthquakes, tropical storms, etc here), but, if anyone knows about the southern Alberta floods that happened this year, it just goes to show that disasters can happen anywhere.

We don't have a basement and our bathrooms are exterior rooms with windows. We have a walk in pantry and laundry room we can go to.
