Safe from the Storm

Monday was an exciting day, well kinda.
We had a storm shelter installed in our garage.

Yes, it was a pretty penny to spend on something we hope to never have to use, but with our tax return we figured now would be the best time, plus there is no price tag on these two monkeys.

Kris was kind enough to snap some pics = blog material :)

The big black box is the storm shelter

It wasn't as loud as I thought it would be, and after they left you couldn't even tell they had been here.
They did a wonderful job cleaning up.

There she is.  It's on Kris' side of the garage, so his truck will straddle it.
He teased that he will crawl down in there and change his oil.  ha!

Before we moved into our house, a tornado actually came through this subdivision.
Luckily our house only received minor damage, but some others in the back were not as lucky.

There have been too many tornadoes close to home.
Once you're in, you can remove the steps to make more room.  

Happy to now have peace of mind.

I think that is such a great idea! You are right you can't put a price on peace of mind.

You’re totally right: life is precious! And your boys are still so young and fragile, and they have so many things in store for them in the future. They need protection. :] I think it’s good timing to install the shelter last April, since tornadoes usually occur during the second quarter of the year.
