What the woof WAS that?!

Wowzers, folks, last night was a doozy!

Last night we had all sorts of lights and boomers in the sky. Not a lot of rain, but it was sure LOUD! Then there was a super loud sound I hadn't heard before, like a siren. Momma suddenly GRABBED me and a pillow and DRAGGED me into the laundry room. I tried telling her that I was Not Allowed in there, but she pulled me in and shut the door. What the woof?!

 Apparently the weirdo sound is something called a "tornado siren". I hadn't experienced one yet, but Momma says they're something you get used to, living in Texas. Momma said the laundry room is the safest place when there are skeery storms, and apparently we both have emergency bags in there. I tell you, I am NOT a fan! But Momma just kept checking her phone and said everything was going to be fine. Then eventually she opened the door, and we both cuddled on the couch while Momma watched a bunch of weird colors on the TV. I hope we don't have to do THAT again -- but Momma says because it's Texas, we sure will!

From the Momma: Last night was Matilda's first tornado drill! She wasn't a fan. Luckily the storms turned east a few miles north of us, so we're fine. A lot of the Dallas/Ft.Worth Metroplex got hit, with what's looking like at least two separate tornadoes that touched down. The weather radar was sure fun to look at last night.


  1. we live our lives by the weather radar, I have it on my tablet. I even shop by the radar. so glad you are both safe and no boxers were harmed in the making of this post.... my heart melted when I saw the nose buried photo.

    Crikey, Tildy - methinks that is one aspect of living in the bighorn state that would definitely put me off!!! I think as long as you have your mum with you, all will be well, though. Hugs and wags, YAM-aunty xxx

  4. Yup, those sirens started here at 2 o'clock. We all went downstairs into our safe room and Mom watched the storms on the tv. We didn't like all the noise and when we went back upstairs the sky flashes were so fast that it looked like daytime. We all slept together in the bathroom.

  5. Oh Matilda what a NIGHT...I was all scared just reading it. Storms of any kind in the night are no fun you can't see anything. I'm so glad you and Mama are a OK

  6. That sounds very scary indeed! We're glad we almost never get tornadoes here in WNY. Just blizzards!

  7. When our Mom heard the news this morning, the first thing she did was call our human brother to be sure they were OK. He reported lots of rain and bad thunder and lightning, and thankfully they were all OK. They have one of those bunkers in their garage to stay safe when the sirens sound.

  9. We just saw a smashed car on it's side on the news, Matilda. Thank doG you and your momma are safe!

  10. We are glad you did not get a tornado. That must have been very scary. It sounds like you were brave.

  11. How scary that must have been and we are glad that you are OK. We have had some nasty winds lately and a real bad thunderstorm that uprooted some trees in a nearby town. This weather is crazy
