It was no secret among our friends and family that the biggest worry of mine about moving to Oklahoma almost 3 months ago (we moved from Colorado to Oklahoma at the end of February…..more about that here and here) — was, yep, the TORNADOES! Those suckers have always freaked me out! And I remember saying out loud when moving here was an actual possibility, “who actually moves to Oklahoma? On purpose?!?!”
Fast forward to my husband Steve accepting a new job, a super speedy house sell in CO, a frantic last minute weekend trip to look for a house in OK, and a whirlwind move to a brand new state 3 weeks later, on February 27th. And that state just happened to be famous for twisters. Oh boy. The one thing I was adamant about buying very FIRST for this house (even though we needed window blinds…..and still don’t have them, ha!), was a storm shelter. The brand new house we bought didn’t have one (which should be a law in this state, am I right??) and I knew I wouldn’t be able to rest, until one was installed.
Well, we installed one about 2 weeks later, on March 17th, and I posted a few pictures of the install on Instagram. Yep, right in the 3rd bay of our garage.
