Yep, you guessed it, it was very high winds. We have had small tornadoes wander across our property before, so I know what they sound like and it sounded just like that. According to the news weatherman on TV this morning, we had 60 mph guests of wind as the storm front passed over us and also quite a few small tornadoes. Since the front line stretched at an angle with the north end a lot further east than the south end, Houston didn't get it for another couple of hours (about 07:00).
I did take a short nap on the couch, and tried to comfort my oldest pup who is deathly afraid of anything that goes boom or bang and with all the lightning in the area, there was a lot of thunder. But, today dawned bright and sunny, we survived the storm, and it is going to be a great day and I hope your day will be great, too, you hear?
