Karmic weirdness

Today brought more tornados...yes, I really do feel like I live in Kansas now!  At least seven tornado touchdowns in my part of the country, and the tornados sirens by my house went off three times.  Scary...
So, after the first storms were over this evening, I had a babysitter, and my boyfriend and I decided to go to the movies.  We figured we had at least three or four hours before the second round of storms got here.
What movie did we decide on?  'The Day After Tomorrow', of course!  I love mindless disaster movies, and after surviving this week, it seemed a fitting choice.
So we're sitting in the movie theater, and the movie is almost over, and...the lights go out in the theater.  Goodbye movie, hello emergency lights.
Yes, it was another tornado! (I can't believe in just a week's time I've become relatively calm about these things.)
How ironic is it that we missed the end of this weather disaster movie...because of a weather disaster? 
The theater management made us stay inside until the storm passed.  When we finally left, there was no electricity, no traffic lights, and there was debris everywhere.
I was very thankful when I got home and realized that my house was still okay, and I even had electricity.  There are those around here who are not so lucky...some with no electricity, and some with no houses.
I hope and pray that things will get better tomorrow for everyone affected by today's storms.
