Riders on the Storm ~ David Archuleta and Me

Posted by betsy on Saturday, June 8, 2013

Last week I was working the late shift. My husband called me at work to let me know that there were bad storms coming (sometimes I am in a bubble at work, not really supposed to even look at my phone). They were already sheltering in the basement as the tornado sirens were blaring near our home. A few minutes later, we heard OUR sirens going off. I work 30 minutes from home. Customers started stopping at the store and asking if they could shelter there. Of course! By then I had checked my phone, and it seemed the warnings were widespread, take cover immediately, tornadoes sighted all over.

A couple of hours later, the customers had left, the warnings were gone, the last of the money was counted, the doors were locked, and I set the alarm and walked outside with my last 2 coworkers.

I checked my phone one last time, and noted that the tornado warning was extended for another hour. The sirens were back on. We had to drive home in this craziness. I popped in my TOSOD Asian Tour Edition, then settled in for the drive home. The rain subsided after awhile, and as I got a couple minutes from home, I turned on my camera and videotaped the drive.

(you never know what the heck you’ll see, maybe a tornado? Idk, lol – maybe I’ve seen too many TV shows.)

It wasn’t until I watched it back that I noticed the music. It’s very short, only a couple of minutes long, but there’s David’s voice amid the darkness and flashes of lightning.

The thing is, the Monday prior, we had a tornado hit our backyard. It sheared the tops of the trees in all our neighbors’ yards but made a direct hit on our huge 300 year old Oak tree, knocking it down onto our garage, yard, pool, and power lines. My husband was the only one home. As he was stepping into the shower he heard a loud noise. Running to the back window upstairs, he looked out and saw it happen.

This is a picture of what remained of our garage AFTER the tree was removed.

That was also the night of the terrible Oklahoma tornado, so I hardly mentioned it. We were so lucky, how could I even complain. Everybody was safe.

Listening to David while I was driving home was the most soothing thing. And it’s not the first time he’s gotten me through a storm. Snowstorms and other storms life sends. This is no small thing.

Thanks for riding with me, David. In your own way.

p.s I found out the next day that there had been 6 verified tornadoes in the vicinity. Lots of property damage but no serious injuries.
