Stormy, Stormy Night
Last night I woke up with my heart pounding, around 12:45 a.m. Why? What just woke me up?
I had only been asleep for a little more than an hour. I remember watching the end of Will Ferrell’s bit on The Daily Show, but turned the TV off right after. Sorry “Moment of Zen”. I was tired. I AM tired.
After jolting awake, and discovering that Tristan was awake, too, I got out of bed to take a look at the raging storm. Holy cow. Watching the pine trees bow and sway in the backyard, as well as the nearly constant lightning strikes, I thought that it might be a good idea to turn on the TV and see what was going on. Of course, true to form, News14Carolina was urging everyone to get up and go the lowest level of your house. So, that we did. Also, I was concerned with how Lilly was dealing with the storm. (No, she doesn’t sleep in our room. Yet. I’m working on it). So, there the three of us were, at 1:00 a.m., hanging out in the living room, until the storm passed.
I saw that down Katie’s way, things were worse… but the worst that I saw here in town was a couple of stoplights that were malfunctioning on the way to work this morning. Thankfully, we don’t have any damage to report, this time around. Just an ever-growing lack of sleep. *yawn*.
