This time it wasn't due to unwanted phone scams, but the weather. It started raining as I was getting into bed. The thunder and lightening began as soon as I turned off my light ... big, deep, loud, long, thunderous rolls. The crackling was like explosions, jolting me from a dead sleep. All ... night ... long. Strangely, it ended when I woke up and turned on the light when my alarm went off this morning.
Wait ... could it be that my lamp is the on/off switch for thunderstorms?!!
