Luckily we went to bed early last night. Mum read a little bit and turned her light out 1t 9.30pm. Usually she does this at midnight, so for her it was early, especially as she was on call for the hospital.
We weren't woken by the phone ringing, but by big booms of thunder, lightening and hail at 6am!! Who needs an alarm clock? Mum says my furs were a bit wet when she touched me, so she knew I had snuck out for a pee before the storm struck. I was good and didn't run away and hide, but stuck my head out the curtains to look through the closed window.
The storm passed after 20 minutes, and we could go back to sleep as mum is on an afternoon shift today.
We hope all the storms pass you by wherever you are.
