My son was filled with excitement for his new play set his grandpa and I had assembled in the backyard. When the storm began to roll in, we made him come inside. Within a few minutes, his dad was watching out the window and said, "We all have to go to the basement NOW!" and grabbed our son and headed downstairs. We all made for the basement and as my mom was passing the back door she looked out and said, "There goes the swing set". My heart sank. After the storm we came up to assess the damage and the winds had picked up the heavy wooden play set and tossed it 50 feet down the alley. Now a pile of boards, my son was beside himself with grief. This was just a severe thunderstorm warning, so please do not underestimate the power of these storms!
