As many phone calls and emails as are coming/going into/out of this house, this afternoon, one would think it was a call center!

Very nice photo! My iris just started poking up leaves earlier last week. They either weren't fooled by the warm weather last month, or it has been too dry for them to get in a hurry.

Kay, Hattie--You get no argument from me.
Joared--The 4/14/2012 tornado that took out a mobile home park about five miles from us, which tore a swath through the Spirit campus (adjacent to McConnell AFB), and on up through the southeastern part of Wichita, to Andover, missed us (I had our hidey-hole closet beneath the basement stairs packed with water, my jump boots, and wrecking tools - and Hunky Husband and I were two minutes away from packing ourselves into the closet when it became apparent that the tornado was, in fact, by-passing us.)
Immediately thereafter (at about 10:50 PM), I was called to the Sedgwick County Emergency Operation Center (and HH immediately left for the office) to work on the response to the tornado. The traffic light 3/4-mile from our home was the last functional traffic light that I saw for about 8 miles on the way and businesses and homes were without power for that distance. HH took 20-30 minutes longer than I (to go a slightly shorter distance) because he chose a route that (unbeknownst to him, obviously) was more impacted by the storm. That was a night without sleep for either of us.
We aren't getting much sleep; but, we did not, as so many did, lose our home. Now, I shall return to bed to see if I can get a little more shut-eye before reporting back to duty.

Glad to hear the tornado missed you, but sounds like it might have been closer than wanted.
