The lights weren't on, but we were home
Last night we had some severe thunderstorms with reported wind gusts up to 100 miles per hour. We dodged the bullet as far as damage, but we did get to sit in the dark for about five hours. We spent about 30 minutes taking shelter in the closet while the storms were right over us. No one should ever have to spend 30 minutes in the closet with Alex. Anyway, the lights came back on around midnight, so we got up and reset all the clocks and Pete set his alarm to wake up this morning. We've been getting to hear the tornado sirens go off at least once a week for the past month. I guess we're in the midst of a fairly volitile severe weather season.
