The tempest

Posted in Life at 11:46 am by lifebytheday

Last night, an emergency alert came across the television announcing a TORNADO warning in Massachusetts, that was headed for OUR TOWN in approximately 17 minutes. 

In case you missed that the first time…yes, I said a TORNADO…in MASSACHUSETTS.  What?!?!?

Although it wasn’t even raining at that point, it was clear that some sort of storm was coming through (very dark and ominous), so S and I made a big production out of battening (sp?) down the hatches, turned off the ACs, lit a few candles and then sat down on the couch to watch the news and our front windows. 

The best part of the whole thing?  That as the newscasters counted down the minutes ’til the storm moved into town, S and I jokingly gave each other a smooch and then toasted with big double margaritas. 😛  We may as well go out in style, right?

And after all that, nothing happened (thank goodness!) except for the period of five minutes where the thunder and lightening was RIGHT OVER OUR HOUSE.  Seriously.  I even screamed and jumped at one point and I LOVE a good lightening storm. 

At least it was a good distraction for the evening, right?  😉

    What an exciting event to have happen!! So glad it didn’t actually touch down around you and that toasting with Margaritas sounds like an excellent way to spend your time during a tornado!!

    haha! that is so funny! I saw S’ FB status on it and chuckled. We were in Maine and had a huge-ass storm too! Took away our floaties from the dock. RIP 😉
