Toto, We're Not in Kansas Anymore - S1-E20

Question: Why did the family not go to the basement?

Answer: In the episode Becky said they need to go to the basement and Roseanne said that they don't have a basement anymore because Dan had turned it into a storage locker. Dan replies saying he had to put his 2X4's and sheetrock somewhere.

Chosen answer: Most likely this had to do with TV production concerns rather than depicting reality. The set for the home's main floor is bigger and allows for more action to be shown. The storm's damage and severe effects such as the high winds, torrential rain, thunder, lightning, etc. are seen from the windows, heightening the drama. If the family were in a cramped basement space, the action would be more static. Some artistic license needs to used in order to tell the story.
