Right before a tornado comes through here the sky turns bright orange, then the warning siren goes off, and then we go underground. When we first moved here we had no clue. We’d never seen a tornado before. My son and I woke up one morning and outside was completely orange and we were confused. Shortly after the town warning siren went off. A year later we now know the signs and are on our game to move quickly.

I very much so believe in climate change. I also believe Mother Nature is pissed for how we have treated her planet and each other.
