Midnight was approaching last night when the storms hit again. I think we had a 20% of storms. Right. So lightning illuminated the sky in a spectacular light display while thunder boomed and cracked right overhead. The wind blew so hard and the rain rushed down in torrents I really felt the house would be rubble by morning.
But none of that is all that interesting right?
No. It’s the human and puppy aspect that is. So says I. I scrambled out of bed to batten down the hatches. Something my dad would say. He was in the AF, but thought of himself as the captain of the ship.
In any event, I had to turn of the computer. I have it on at night so that a cloud service can save the data during the off hours when it won’t use up my internet time because I’m always over on it. 🙁
Anyway, so it’s wild and all I can think of is where is the safest place to be in the house. No place, really. If a tornado hits, that’s all she wrote. Literally.
The puppies were watching me run into the living room to secure the computer. They were good. No barking. Just sitting there wondering about me, and not sure about the storm. They seem to feel more secure in their crate.
So then I went back to bed to worry about the storm. And the weird happenings began.
The light was on in the garage. I hadn’t turned it on. I never turn it on. Or rarely. Spooky music here.
So I got back out of bed and headed for the garage, poked my head inside, and tried to remember which button turned off the light without accidentally opening the garage door during the brunt of the storm. Got the right button, light didn’t go out, great, but I went back to bed. Then I thought it looked dark, so I got out of bed, peeked into the garage, light’s out. I return to bed. Puppies are watching all this weirdness, by the way, not sure what I’m up to.
A few minutes later, my phone rings. But only on the main phone. The extension in my room just remained deadly silent.
More spooky music here.
Was it the fae? Or the electrical storm that was wreaking havoc with my house in the middle of the night?
I checked the weather this morning and yep, it had changed from hardly any % of rain to 60% chance of PM thunderstorms. The radar shows storms all over our area today, right now. So not sure if they’re going to wait until the PM to start up again or let loose off and on all day. But for now, lakes of water are on my driveway, again, culverts are full of water, again, and it’s time to start the day all over–and think of being somewhere else…maybe with a Billionaire wolf in paradise!
Hope you have a lovely Wednesday!
