Wow. What a night.
Or should I say morning.
My husband gets up about 2:30am to get ready for work. This morning he gets up as normal, gets dressed and lets the dog out.
I usually wake up when he does but I get to roll over and go back to sleep. Usually after a quick potty break. No exception this morning and I just fell back asleep when....
He is shaking me telling me the sirens are going off.
I say to grab Belle and we run downstairs since we all sleep upstairs in our house. On our way to the basement I grab the dog, his leash, my cell phone and keys. You never know.
Apparently, we were under a tornado warning and all the elements were there on the radar that precede a tornado. This is at 2:25 am.
The warning was set to expire at 3:15. The sirens stopped around 3:05 but we continued to watch the TV in the basement and waited until 3:15.
It was super windy and then completely quiet. Very eerie. Especially given you hear that it is always quiet and calm before the actual tornado hits.
Thank God it never produced a true tornado but it was definitely a way I don't want to wake up to again.
I needed to try to get Belle back to sleep which was hard to do since she was scared. But she finally did. Not without waking up a few times to make sure I was still around. I stayed up.
I am beyond tired. Belle has 2 hours of dance this evening and then I think we will all be crashing early.
