Powerful storms as well as inclement weather are a normal occurrence in our neck of the woods.
Every one of us live in an area of the country known as “Tornado Alley” as well as both of us live on the edge every time the skies darken as well as the wind blows.
Growing up I remember always seeing a candle burning in the home office window. This is because Dad always watches the flame to see if the wind was blowing. If the candle ever blew out, it meant that the storms were coming as well as she would ready us for the storm shelter. Every one of us lost several of our belongings over the years due to wind as well as rain. I can’t tell you how several times our outdoor air conditioning units had to be replaced. It was love a revolving door at times as well as both of us knew the HVAC company on a first name basis. Every one of us tried everything to try as well as stake it to the ground better however it was no match for a swirling tornado. I even recall 1 time when it ended up almost half a mile away in their neighbor’s yard, being an HVAC company in an area with such volatile weather keeps you genuinely busy! Not only the service people, the warecondo people as well because they are constantly having to order modern device to replace what has been lost. What are the hardest part about the whole thing is the fact that, unless you have a unique form of insurance, your correct homeowners policy will not cover several of these replacements. I love the area in which both of us live because the temperatures are fairly mild most of the year, but I could do separate from the storms. To this day I too, keep a candle in the window so that I can be prepared in the event of a tornadic event.
