wet night in the neighborhood


I slept through most of this.  It was practically next door.

And yes, it was quite a storm.  But I had taken migraine medication, put in my ear plugs, snuggled against an ice pack and was very, very comfy.   The sound of torrential rain just made me happy to be in bed.  And the lightning and thunder?  Huh?  Really?  I didn’t hear or see a thing.

My cell phone pinged warnings I never heard.   Son #2 slept very little; he was on duty just in case.

Meanwhile, just a few miles east, people were on top of roofs and clinging to trees and evacuating flooding houses.

We woke to sunshine.  And constant news and weather updates.  It was quite an awful night in Austin.

But we’re fine.  And very lucky.
