What a day it was around here today. Approximately 6-12 tornadoes
touched down across the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex.
I was at work, at an elementary school in far south Fort Worth near I-20, working with a graduate student who was providing speech-language therapy services to two young fourth grade students.
We were in "duck and cover" mode for two hours in a small office.
The two young students were scared I'm sure but they were so awesome.
They were mature, followed instructions, remained calm and quiet at all time,
and stayed in that uncomfortable duck and cover position off and on
with out one complaint; no whiny, no panic, nothing.
My son was texting me from across town at his school.
He said his administrators had assured them
they were in no "imminent" danger and he was fine but
a little upset they had cut short his lunch period to get all of the students
to safe locations within the school.
(His cafeteria area is surrounded by huge windows which is not safe.)
Sometimes kids just amaze me.
Luckily, the tornadoes missed our area.
Other areas were hard hit but as of this moment
we are hearing that there are no serious injuries or deaths.
That is an 18 wheeler being hurled around in the air.
