Someone searching the internet after the rash of recent tornados came across my post on "Tornado Warnings" and emailed me asking for plans for our storm cellar. Unfortunately, I don't have any plans, but I offered to post more detailed photos. Here they are:
I hope these pictures are helpful. Obviously, having a good basement made this possible, but it is reassuring when those winds are howling outside to know that there's more than just a cellar to retreat to!
My next step is to stock it permanently with more than just the jugs of water I have down there now. That will be another post--one we hope that ends up being completely superfluous!
