#SOLSC17: Extreme Alert

Did you know that this message comes over your phone?

Emergency alerts can be alarming when they happen.


The good news: 17 miles away.  And two towns away.

Our region has property damage.

No internet today is a VERY small casualty.

Are you prepared for spring storms?

  1. Oh my gosh, Fran! Scary. Hope the day goes okay!

    1. Lanny,
      So much happens . . .Thanks!

  2. Fran, you are making me think that my husband and I ahould check our phones often as we drive through the Flint Hills of Kansas on the way to Manhattan this Easter. Beth is turning fifty, and I taught her how to ride. She rode with me from the age of nine until she graduated from Del Val. Now she’s a vet. Should I bring my ruby slippers with me?

    1. Lynne,
      Definitely pack your ruby slippers!

      Pay attention to your phones. I think we’re having our tornado alerts early to get them out of the way!

  3. Oh my, Fran. How nerve wracking this kind of experience is. Glad things are OK.

    1. Apparently I’m supposed to improve my ability to handle challenges! LOL

  4. Hope everyone is safe Fran.

  5. Our local news was talking about the evacuations and scary weather that’s going on throughout the middle of our country. Prayers to you, Fran. Stay safe!

    1. Melanie,
      Over 30 . . .one report that I heard. And I know of two concerts in Iowa that were relocated due to the storm!

  6. I never experienced a tornado warning ’till I moved here. They’re super-scary! I don’t know how you manage all of them out there!

    1. Stacey
      I can only remember three warnings. But I’m old and my brain leaks. And I know they were NEVER delivered to my phone before!

  7. Thinking of you and your family, Fran…
