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.
