We had a tornado warning in NYC last night. The sky looked like a gorgeous shade of a pink and purple mix.
Um. I live on the top floor of an apartment building. How does one in the NYC area batten down the hatches?
You don’t want to go crazy because this is not tornado alley…but after seeing what happened recently in Missouri and Alabama, you don’t want to mess around.
But…this is not like the Wizard of Oz. We don’t have basements and tornado shelters much less tornado drills. All I’ve got is a bathroom with no windows and a bottle of wine.
Ultimately, the preparation I did was to flatten our foldable chairs and foldable table on the balcony. I brought in the smallest of the flower planters. And the grill is always tied to the balcony (the cover has already flown away once).
We can only hope for the best even though the sky looks crazy.

Update: We were fine. But parts of Massachusetts were not so lucky. Thoughts are with all of those affected.
