We’re in full storm mode today, which I’m rather enjoying, to be honest. I tend to like chaotic weather, although it makes me feel lazy & just want to sleep, or lay in bed reading. I went to bed this morning at 1am, only to awaken at 5:30 to the sound of tornado alarms going off in a distant neighborhood. Gradually closer alarms went off, & then they gradually faded. I consulted my weather app, & apparently a tornado touched down in U City, which is about 3 or 4 miles north of my neighborhood. Otherwise we all had fairly strong winds, rain, & hail. No damage done here. Not sure about U (that’s University) City, but I’ll check in with friends up there.
I almost got up, thinking “now I’m awake”, but I ended up going back to sleep & not waking up until 9:40!! I start teaching at 10, so this was my first teapot of the day, something strong & bold to awaken my groggy mind & senses, & it was good!
