Den was away for work yesterday and overnight and of course our weather forecast was frightful. A tornado watch was up all day and the local news was filled with doom and gloom. I was alone with the girls and in the early evening we just sat together waiting for the strong winds, lightning, hail, forceful rain and of course the "piece de resistance"...no power! The red band across the bottom of the TV showed actual times when the worst of the storm was likely to strike. So...at 7:14...I turned lights and tv off...watched the girls for that inner knowledge of weather conditions that cats are supposed to have...there was nothing...and just listened to the far off rumbling of thunder.
Just when I thought the storm passed...it hit! Wind, rain and lightning that lasted for about 20 minutes...and then a surreal calm...and we still had electricity! Oh my...and...the girls slept through the entire thing!
