You say "tornado," I say "tornodo."

Last night there was a huge storm here in NYC. They are trying to decide if it was a tornado.

Interestingly enough, whilst the storm was howling and for about 5-10 minutes every ten seconds there were flashes of light and crashes of thundering echoing through our home I was painting our kitchen and cuddling Tommy that wanted a little attention right then. We had a couple of flickers of light.

Then S ran out and said brimming with nearly liquid excitement, "Mom is this the storm?" She meant is this tropical storm we expected two weeks ago.

I said no.

Then undeterred and delighted she said, "We'd better run to the store for supplies."

Oh the joy of staying inside when it is storming. Time to open the shades, get a bowl of popcorn, and watch nature at work. :)

If you would like to see photos of the damage caused by the storm check this out.
