Okay, so, I didn't actually come close to dying, but... whatevs...
A huge storm blew through my area last night. I think two tornadoes touched down. My dad's entire town was without power, but he had a generator, so that's good. There was a guy in the town whose shed had been completely ripped off its foundation. The thing was sitting on its roof. ;; One of the smaller trees in my dad's yard split down the middle. He tried to get us some dinner before he took us back to our mom's, but all the McDonald's were PACKED because nobody had a working stove, so they had to eat out.
We got back to my mom's place at about 6:30, and our neighborhood, the two surrounding neighborhoods, and the Wal*Mart down the street were all pitch black. I've never seen a pitch black Wal*Mart before...
Anyway, my mom was at work, and my stepdad was sleeping because he works third shift. My sister has a pet snake, and the snake's heat lamp was out, so we spent a couple of hours trying to keep this thing warm. My stepdad wouldn't wake up because he said he didn't care about the snake, so we finally called my mom, and we were freaking out, so she came home to help us out. ;~; She also brought us some dinner, so yayyy.
We got the brilliant idea to see if my sister's friend had power, and she did, so we took the snake over there for the night, and by the time we got back, our power was back on, too! Figures... XD
Anyway, school's out today because the blackout was so bad.
But yeah... Still alive!
I will probably upload a picture later today... after the speed paint is done rendering.
