They decided to send me a text message at 5 am this morning that there will be a flash flood watch starting at 9pm this evening. I guess the idea is to to warn people early so they can make preparations before they leave for work. But now I'm stuck awake at this ungodly hour. The worst part is that I have to be up at this time tomorrow through Friday. So I would really have liked to sleep in today.
They sent me another text message while I was writing this post. This one was about a high wind advisory that will come into effect later this afternoon. I turned my phone off so any further texts won't wake me if I manage to fall back asleep.
