We have just gone through an hour of watching the sky. This area had a tornado warning as did much of southern Ontario so we were staying together in one room and waiting. We have a couple of problems in these situations. One is that we don't have a basement and the other is that we really can't see much of the sky for all the trees. However, it did pass and we can get back to normal.
Our little dog, as they often do, sensed something was wrong and wanted to be picked up. It is odd that dogs have the same reaction as a small child when they feel something is wrong: they want to be picked up.
