So, only a few hours of getting the moving truck unloaded, it started getting really dark and a big storm front was moving in, and there was a tornado watch for Battleground, IN which is about 5 to 10 minutes from our house. At about 7pm, the sirens all go off and it gets really calm and we all go outside and look up, and the clouds start to circle directly above our house like in the above photo which isnt' ours but looks exactly like what we saw. Some college kid comes running out of the house across the street freaking out saying, "I've heard that they sound like train whistles right before a tornado!" and he gets in his car and races away. We had Amanda's little sister Hannah with us and if you know Hannah and her history of freaking out during thunderstorms, she fell apart, started bawling and hiding in our closet. All the kids started wondering why their Aunt was crying and freaking out, luckily Hannah pulled it together after we said a prayer and started singing primary songs with the kids. It was pretty intense, luckily it moved away from directly over our house, but geez, what a welcome back to Indiana, this never would have happened in Philly.
