Lots of good imagery. I hope Sunday found the little family in church!
What a sweet story. You did a great job of showing us what that time period must have looked like. Storm analogies are always good, but your take on it was on it was special.
Great job!
I enjoyed this entire piece,
well done,
Nice story
If tornadoes happen enough that there are sirens, why aren't all the houses equipped with basements or other safe rooms? I come from earthquake country, so not experienced tornadoes, and hope never to have to!
Tornado sirens can put the fear of God into a person, at least for a short period of time.

Well written story.

We lived in the country and never had a siren when I went through my tornado years ago.
Good job with the story development and light/storm analogy.

A bit of red ink for you: shorten some of your sentences and use more active verbs. This will help the story move along even better.
