Sleeping Through the Storm

With my new schedule requiring a 4 a.m. wake up, I was pretty tired last night. I knew there was supposed to be a storm or two, so I set my cell phone alarm as a backup. We also let Hawkeye in, since he hates storms so much. The regular alarm went off as usual, so I woke up and showered, not thinking anything about the weather.

After I got dressed, I took the dog out and saw that the grill was lying on it's face again. *sigh* Oh yeah, storms. There was a limb from the neighbor's tree in our yard, and between our fence and the highway. Wow, it must have blown pretty hard.

Before we left this morning, Kevin woke up (to start his new job, yeah!) and I told him about the grill. He explained that the power had been off most of the night, but that he had reset the alarm. The storm window in our room was also making all kinds of racket, due to the high winds, so he had gotten up, found some masking tape, and done a quick-fix to shut it up.

Apparently, I can sleep through anything. I feel GREAT!

Well, he didn't get much rest for the first day on the job, did he? I only got about 3 hours of sleep myself. The only thing that wakes me when the power goes off is the electric smoke detecter. It howls, I'm awake, and my dog is off to the bathtub.

Lucky! The slightest noise (usually pet-related wakes me up and I can't get back to sleep. I'm tired all the time.
