Just not my day...

We had a tornado watch here last night from 3:30am until it was lifted just now. The wind was howling something crazy last night, plus lightening, thunder, and very hard rain. I don't know why, but this storm had me in a panic. I woke up around 3am thinking I heard a tornado. It was just the wind, but I couldn't calm down, so I checked the weather, and of course, right after I turn it on they put our entire area on tornado watch. That did not help ease my nerves at all. I didn't want to go back to sleep for fear of a tornado coming while I was sleeping. My dad called around 4am to tell me that his radio weather radio warned him of a tornado watch, and he told me he would call me again if it turned into a tornado warning. That eased my mind a little bit, so I was able to go back to sleep, but then around 6am I woke up again in a panic because I heard what I thought was a tornado... we live close to an airport... it was an airplane taking off. That happened three more times, and every time my heart would race.

And I am supposed to be in class right now, but I'm not because my windshield wipers are messed up. I only have liability insurance, not to mention I could kill myself trying to drive in the rain like that. I wouldn't have been able to see, so here I am, missing my classes because of this stupid weather.
Then, I was trying to email my teachers to explain to them why I'm not going to be in class... Well, I have a professor named Mrs. Grayson and a professor named Mrs. Gregory. I was trying to email Mrs. Grayson, but accidentally clicked on Mrs. Gregory's name, and didn't realize it until after I sent the message, so I apologized to her and went to send the email to the right person... one problem... in that email I called Mrs. Grayson "Mrs. Gregory." They probably both think I'm hungover and that's why I didn't come to class or something... especially since broken windshield wipers is a terrible excuse, but in my case, it is true.

It's only 9am, and I'm already having a bad day. Hopefully it can only get better from here.

  1. I did the same thing last night. I woke up at 4 because my house was shaking from the thunder. I was about to have a panic attack. I can not stand storms. We just had an ice storm Friday night... And 2 night's later we get severe weather. It's not freaking fair. We're supposed to get at least a little break from tornado weather.

    It sucks that you couldn't go to school, but you did the right thing by not risking yourself. Better safe than sorry.
