Riding out the Storm

As you all know, the South was hit with some terrible storms this week,
and Wednesday night the tornadoes came through our campus town.
We live in on campus apartments and so our CA's had us all go to the basement of our building to ride out the storm.
I made my friend Sarah come stay with us through the bad weather since her roommate wasn't home, and we just had a grand old time in the jam-packed HOT hallway.
crammed in our little corner of the hallway
luckily, emily grabbed snacks!
 We ended up having to stay in the basement for over 3 hours waiting for the storms to pass. And luckily, my finals were over.. but unfortunately, the majority of the people still had finals the next morning! We didn't get back to our room til 1:00am.
Em studying in the hallway!

How we spent our 3 hours: snackage, and trash from making Sarah's notecards.
 When we got back to the apartment we made a big pallet in the living room for a sleepover.
I couldn't have asked for a better "last" night in the apartment!

You can never be too old for sleepovers ;)

I feel so lucky to have been spared from the devastating storms that swept through the South. Definitely be sure to keep the Tornado victims in your prayers as they continue to recover from the devastating impact the storm had on their communities. The pictures are absolutely heartbreaking of the wreckage left by the storms.

Hope you all had a wonderful weekend! I can't wait to get back to blogging ASAP. I still have so much to unpack before I can be back in full swing!

It was definitely a scary experience! Me and my roomies were camped our in my bathroom for a long time waiting for it to pass! So blessed that we were safe from all the damage! It's so sad though to see the destruction the storm did to other areas :(

I'm sorry you guys have had to deal with all the bad weather, I wish Mother Nature would knock it off already. I will say though, I got all warm and fuzzy when you got to the slumber party part of your story, I miss those nights with my girl friends! I'm so happy you guys got to do that! Stay safe and this Michigan girl will keep y'all in her prayers!
