Severe Weather Safety

Last week, I completed my storm spotter certification training and safety was the first thing we covered.

Safety Tips for Severe Weather

  • Two feet of moving water can carry away most vehicles
  • When the thunder roars, go indoors
  • Never try to outrun a tornado
  • During a tornado, do not take shelter under bridges or overpasses
  • During a tornado, the safest place is a basement or the inner most part of your house

Transportation and Vehicle Show

The Monrovia Library sponsored a transportation and vehicle show today.  Mom and I decided to check it out and it was really interesting.

People were allowed to climb on and enter most of the vehicles, which I enjoyed.  There were several vehicles that I have never had a chance to look at the inside of, and a few of them surprised me by how much equipment was packed into each space.
