When you have a weather radio broadcasting severe weather statements all night!
Between 11pm and 4am the darned thing must have gone off 8 times with the siren. But when you have one of the biggest thunderstorms since I got here going over you and it's already produced tornadoes elsewhere, you just can't risk turning it off. Many of the broadcasts were for tornado warnings just south of us on the same storm.
There was one clap of thunder so loud I woke with a shriek lol and immediately went to gather up the cats in case we had to head into the storm shelter! We had 2.25 inches of rain overnight, a quarter of our total for this year and the road is underwater.
Thank goodness school gets out at 11am, because I may be asleep by 3pm!
