It was such a bad night

Our weather was atrotious last night. We had very high winds, and heavy rain.
When I was going to bed at around 10:30 it was awful outside.
I knew I probably wouldnt sleep too well. I wasnt wrong.
The rain was pounding off the windows, and the wind was blowing stuff around, there was some loud banging noises throughout the night, I think it was peoples bins blowing around as its our trash day today so everyone had their bin out.
I tried my best to sleep. I did wake up a few times but I didnt get out of bed, I only got up to get a drink and to check on Nitro.
At 6 AM my next door neighbour texted me to ask if I was ok, I was awake so I texted her back and we texted for a couple of minutes.
I finally got up at 7:45!
Its still really awful outside, and the forecast is going to be like this for the whole day.
I’m glad I’m staying indoors!
I just hope my PA Frances has a way to get to work safely, I’m hoping her son or daughter will give her a ride to work.
