That would have been me screaming as I jumped out of my bed last night. The house shaking and the deafening noise of a gigantic vacuum cleaner passing over us. Or was it a freight train?
I ran through the house, trying to peer out into the night. Wind tore at the trees, the garage door ripped open. Oh God oh God oh God was my mantra. Where is it...it's moving on, southward. I listened carefully as the sound moved away.
I switched the tv on to the local station. The radar appeared, but no sound emerged, then the station went black. I switched to the next one, tennis? Then the next, another black station. Back to the first, there was now sound as well as visual.
Thunder? That was only thunder and wind?
Be still my heart, and back to sleep.
