Weather related madness…
So if you didn’t know…I’m home all alone this week as my wife and daughter are out of town visiting her family. This is great because my wife has worked full-time over the last several years and just quit her job in May so that she can start back at school in the fall. So she is making up for lost time and I of course get to rule the roost for the week only responsible for the cat. Poor kitty. (I digress.)
So last night I’m in bed and at that critical point in the night where dreamland is but seconds away. And if your one of those types that is used to falling asleep with someone else in bed with you, you can appreciate just how critical falling asleep alone really is. So just as I was about to enter that magical and sometimes elusive state of sleep…the sirens go off. (You can catch some local coverage here.) So I instantly wake up and flip on the TV hoping that it’s really something I shouldn’t be worried about. In fact the storm track was going to put the alleged tornado very close if not right over my house. Not only that but because of today’s technology I knew that it would be here at exactly 12:04am. I thought about setting my alarm. But it really is hard to sleep when you can hear the blaring of warning sirens from two different municipalities and the guys on TV are hyperventilating and trying to keep track of all their radars and storm spotters and what not.
Needless to say I made it. The house made it. Even the kitty made it. How do you cope when the weather turns nasty? How about when your by yourself?
