The hubby bought it for me because I stay up all night during spring and early summer storms. My kids sleep upstairs and I want to know when I need to get them downstairs ahead of time. Sleeping while a tornado is headed our way is a big fear of mine. So, he thought this would ease my mind. Last night a crack of thunder was so loud, he woke and came looking for me.
I was, of course, watching the live news in the living room with the sound down low to keep from waking him. He mentioned the radio was supposed to keep me informed so I’d sleep. I just smiled and said old habits are hard to break. So, he curled up with me on the couch. Poor guy–he starts a new job today and I think he only got about three hours of sleep.
It’s nearly impossible to sleep during loud thunder and seventy to eighty mile winds. Sounds like a war going on outside. From the looks of things this morning, it looks like it did, too.
