Tornadoes, Swine Flu, Flooding

I think the world might be coming to an end :-) Last night we had at least two tornadoes in Wichita. One was 12 miles west of our house!!! We have a weather radio and that thing was going off like crazy. The first time it was just a possible tornado and Brandon was making fun of all the drama. About 20 minutes after coming up from the basement there was an actual tornado. You should have seen Brandon's face when they said it was 12 miles west of downtown Wichita. He wasn't making fun of me then! Eli had fun reading books and playing in the basement all evening! Next came the flooding. We had over 5 inches of rain last night. I've never heard that hard of a rain fall for so long. It was crazy! I knew our basement was doomed. Most basements get damp, but no basement in Riverside can handle 5 inches of rain. Our carpet is soaked in the family room. Brandon is down pulling it up and throwing it away. I'm not going to deal with this again and I'm paranoid about mold. We're just going to tile and get a large carpet like rug down there. Next, is the swine flu. We have had 2 cases in Kansas. We'll see if we survive the week ;-)
