Well, I don't have children that I'm raising, other than my furchildren, so I don't have children other than them that depend on me.
We did have a huge tornado watch or warning on July 4th of this year. I didn't know this, of course, until it hit me that the weather was really goofy, and I felt like.. eh, I feel like a tornado is coming. I was in the kitchen cooking. I could hear that "freight train" noise (which I've never heard before)... and thought, hmph, that sounds like a tornado, so I glanced outside, and it was pretty much sunny, except there were a few splotches of water on the sidewalk. There was definitely no serious weather going on. I chalked it up to my refrigerator making noise.
A few minutes later, I hear some thunder, and think, that's sort of odd, but I didn't think anything about it really, except that if there was a storm coming, I needed to light candles (our power goes out frequently). So, I kept making my food. When it came to a point where I could leave it, I went and found a lighter and was about to go light the candles. I hear this plink plink plink. I was thinking to myself... I wonder what that is, and I glanced out the sliding glass doors to the deck. It was hail. I freaked.
I zipped out to the kitchen, turned the gas off. I got my mother's bird out of the bathroom. I called the cats. I flipped the weather channel on and saw after a few minutes that there's a tornado watch/warning. I yelled to Noel and Joyeux (who were luckily sitting out side the basement door) to go downstairs. They bolted. I took the bird downstairs. I ran upstairs and got Khan, I tossed him downstairs. I plopped Pogue in the carrier and I was running around for Bagheera. I couldn't find her, so I took Pogue downstairs, and went back up to look for her. I was still looking for her, in the main part of the house, when the warning finally passed.
I was terrified (surprisingly enough, because I'm usually looking for tornados), but I think I was terrified for the cats. I definitely thought there was one. I just... felt it... I guess the pressure from the storm and such was just really odd and then things started happening to indicate the tornado weather.
Anyway, I'm fairly certain that I'd be looking for my cats/
