Yesterday we had storms in the morning and then a very hot and humid day and then the storms came back in the evening. I think I might need to move back to Alaska! Up there we had earthquakes but they didn't worry me. You would just be sitting there at work or home and BAM! You are smack dab in an earthquake. You did wonder if it's "the big one" but in about 10 to 30 seconds you kind of know. You might edge toward a door frame or if you were at my place of work where we had WW2 military desk you might think about how you were going to get under that. But there was none of this watching it and and tracking it and sending updates and all that stuff.
Being that I was getting weather warning all day yesterday I got caught up in the watching and the tracking of them. You can go to Weather Underground and put in your zip code and see what storms are coming. I did and got scared. At one point there was 3 storms with one being severe that was going to go right over my zip code area. I felt that the tracking arrow was pointed right at me. By this time the thunder is a constant rumble and big booms and the lighting it doing it's thing. I put my pants on and socks and got the big flashlight. I even put a chair in the basement cause if I needed to go there, I was not going to sit on the floor with the spiders! I called up my Mommy and Daddy and my Dad talked me down by telling me that hey, you live in AK, you have earthquakes, live on the coast, you get hurricanes, live in WI, you might have tornadoes and just cause there is a tornado watch or a warning does not mean that it's coming to your house. By midnight I was tired of the emotional roller coaster ride that the weather had me on and I went to bed. Slept like a baby.
