Today's A-Z Blog Challenge is brought to you by the letter X!

xan·thic (zan-thik)
1. Having a yellow or yellowish color

The sky took a xanthic look quite a bit over the last 24 hours with the various tornado watches and warnings. We were blessed to only endure some severe thunder storms - compared to what other parts of the country experienced.

When I dropped my son off at school today the sky was looking rather xanthic. And when I returned home shortly thereafter, the tornado watch turned into a tornado warning. I couldn't help but wonder what was happening at the school. But less than an hour later, the storms and warning faded away and so did my concern.

When I picked my son up today here's what he told me:
Jackson: Hey Mom, you know those drills we do to make sure we know what to do in an emergency?
Me: Yah
Jackson: Well we did one today.....except it was real.
Me: Oh my goodness - for the tornado warning!?
Jackson: Yes, that's exactly why. It was real.
Me: Where did you go?
Jackson: To the first floor.
Me: Where on the first floor?
Jackson: In the kindergarten hallway.
Me: The whole second floor?
Jackson: Yep.
Me: What did you do?
Jackson: Well, to tell you the truth Mom....I just prayed.
