Our tax dollars at worK:

The National Weather Service called us at 2:45 a.m., 2:55 a.m. and 3:05 a.m., to tell us that it has issued a tornado warning for our county ... from 2:15 a.m., expiring at 2:45 a.m. It called us again at 3:15 a.m, to advise us that it has (had?) issued a tornado warning from 3:02 a.m. ... expiring at 3:15 a.m.

I would like to thank the NWS, if I knew who to call.

At 3:08 a.m., I heard the dreaded "sounds like a train" sound, looked out the back ... and saw the train 1/4 mile away that was passing by.

And we, exhausted from not sleeping enough for several days, had gone to bed at 9:00 p.m.
