A Good Safety Tip

I have been watching the Oklahoma tornado coverage. So terribly sad. One man made a very good suggestion. People should have a whistle in their "go to cover place" so that they can be rescued if trapped by rubble. When I am camping alone, I wear a whistle around my neck. Originally, I got it in case my dogs ever got lost - they could hear the whistle better than my voice. I never thought to put one in my basement, but I will, now.

One of the TV weather men has suggested that we be sure to wear shoes (not go barefoot into your safe-place) and if you have one, put on a helmet.

And here's another on-the-ground hands-on group:

More good suggestions that are common sense, but easily overlooked. I once read to protect small children in your shelter place, use galvanized trash cans, poke holes in the lid, and put the lid on as the tornado nears. My kids thought I was nuts, but sounded good to me--especially for people who don't have a basement in their homes.

Great idea with the helmets--so many people wearing bike helmets these days--probably should store them in the "safe area".
