And then the night was still

Had a bit of nasty weather last night. I really didn’t think much of it at first. Being out in the middle of nowhere, I only hear the storm sirens when I’m outside. When there is thunder and lightning, I’m not outside. But my new phone likes to chirp when there are storm warnings, so I knew about what was happening.

The lightning flashed, the thunder rumbled, the wind was ripping through the trees. The phone chirped. It was an actual tornado warning. I did actually go downstairs to sit out the storm. It was ominous when the wind actually died during the heart of the storm. Seemed surreal. Then the lightning flashed, the thunder rumbled on again. Our lights flickered. The winds died down. All was well in my little corner of the world.

This morning I heard of some storm damage in the area. I haven’t been by any serious damage, but I did have to detour around some downed tree limbs this morning. I always hope people will pass through the storms safely. I haven’t heard any bad news yet. I hope all is ok.

Until the next storm, and in the next storm, stay safe.

  1. I’m glad all is good and you weren’t effected by the storm. Surprisingly it didn’t do anything out here in Waterville, not even thunder. I am happy for that, being on the top floor of a building built in the 1800’s not so much fun in a storm.

  2. Glad you are safe as well. With all the confusion lately with the tornado, er, storm sirens going off all the time, we’ve given up going to the basement. Guess this seems like one of the times that we should have been down there – then again, the rest of the county got hit harder than we did. Maybe they will print my letter in the newspaper about it…
