For the second time in 20 minutes, the tornado warning sirens have gone off. Not to worry, we're in a safe location. It's gonna be a LOOOOONG night, but I'm loving the storm view from our ginormous windows!
Did I mention that even though the wind and rain are louder than hell, D is sound asleep? Our bedroom is in the safest area of the loft (center of the building), so worse case scenario still looks good for us.
