If I go to the basement I will be unplugging all electronics—including wi-fi before I go down

Cell has wi-fi, but the signal is weak down there. It depends on how fast the storms move this way (right now they are moving very slow—unfortunately for those being effected) as to whether or not they’ll be in it if they come on home. They get off at 4:30 pm central time (little over an hour from now). They’ll be coming home from the north, the storm is coming in from the south west.

I’ve already told them to check the radar closely before leaving the security of the brick building they are in I don’t want them on the road in a little Chevy Colorado if these things head for Tulsa. I’ll be fine, heck I’ve rode them out in tents, cars and every thing else. I’ve got a good basement to hunker down in here. Besides they generally split and go around this ridge. I’m not shaking yet, so I’m safe.

We MAY decide to not pay off the house before funding the ffef—it’s kind of a tossup right now

technically we have 4.5 years to run on both mortgages, so they would go quickly anyway. However, dh is 65 and you never know how long a job will last these days so we are thinking about doing the mortgages before ffef because if we don’t have to make that nearly $3,500 worth of house payments we could survive on retirement if dh lost his job. But then if we do the ffef then we could make the mortgage payments for awhile. I don’t want our home to be in jeopardy We’ll cross that bridge when we get to it. If all goes to plan that decision will be made this time next year. Just snowballing all our cc debt SHOULD be gone by May 2013. Of course I plan on doing more than just snowballing. LOL!
