Tornado sirens

The Lopez Crew and the GG got Brendan’s catamaran out and sailing and here are the sailing crew returning after the GG and Lizard Breath went out in the Motor Bote to warn them of incoming *weather*.

We did get some rain and lightning/thunder but I was totally puzzled when I heard a *tornado siren*. Say what? I have *never* heard a tornado siren here at the moominbeach before. I guess it was emanating from Brimley? We could not figger why. There was “weather” in the area but nothing resembling a tornado. Tornadoes are rare up here in the yooperland. I can count on one hand the number of times some variation of a tornado rolled through. When I was growing up in Sault Ste. Siberia, we had a siren. It was an air-raid siren left over from WWII. The city blew it every night at 10 PM as a curfew reminder. Parents do you know where your children are? The Grinchie says they still blow that siren for curfew and I bet they also do it for tornadoes. But those are rare here in the yooperland.

And so we did not get any tornadoes here today but we got a couple of decent rainstorms, complete with thunder and lightning. I did not think we would lose power and we didn’t (although the internet had to be restarted) but we dredged out some candles just in case and it was so beautiful to have them lit.

And so, gotta go, folks are gathering here on the moomincabin deck for dinner in a while. After a fishing expotition and I dunno what else 🧡

    Big weather, but not as bad as it could have been. I’m coming east on Friday and see thunderstorms in the forecast. Oh, boy! Yikes.
