What a sleepless night! You can bet I’ll get a nap in at some point today.
My plan was to be up at 5 a.m. sewing but I didn’t convince myself to get up til 7. Everyone else around here is still snoozing and I hate to make noise sewing but . . as soon as I finish typing this, the noise will begin.
It was after midnight when I went to bed last night. I’m now over halfway done with getting the star sampler put together. Went to bed, went right to sleep . . for about 10 minutes. The weather radio went off which was only the first of about 100 times that it went off. Lightning was horrible all night. Wind and hail and tons of rain. The tornado sirens never went off but it sounded very scary outside. At 2:45, this vision of myself in my worn out-not for public viewing pajamas crossed my mind. You know how you see people on TV after the tornadoes? I got up and put on a T-shirt and some lounging pants but by now it was getting HOT without the a/c or fan going. I believe this is the first time we’ve lost power for more than a few minutes in the 18 months we’ve been here.
Then I decided that if everything blew away, I’d want my glasses so I tried sleeping with them on . . that didn’t work either.
At some point I finally fell asleep again. When the alarm went off, the fan was back on . . which means the power was back on. I looked out the window, expecting to see lots of storm damage but I saw none. Amazing!
It’s dark and stormy looking outside now.
