Weather or whether not...

It has just struck me funny as how I am so controlled by the weather, outside my home. I am sitting here in a nice tight, warm home and it starts to pour outside and immediately I starting thinking what I need to get, just in case. FOR INSTANCE: quick get the kids to a safe place...turn off all the electrical devices...do we have extra water somewhere???.....are all the outside things put away???(thank you Doug for picking up all the toys that got dragged out yesterday!)....Oh, what about the kids at school??? are they okay???....what if the power goes out??? Do we have candles, and flashlights????.....
On and on my mind goes, and it is all I can do not to jump up and run around the house like a made woman screaming "we're all going to die!!" I have to tell myself, "we're okay, we are in the house and safe from the rain. RELAX!!!"
Oh,.... I just saw lightning and heard the thunder....got to go turn everything off and get the kids in a safe place...just in case.
