What? There Was A Storm Last Night?

Last night I went to bed before the storm hit. I was really tired from work and I was annoyed that the finale of "Hell's Kitchen" was interrupted by Fox 9 news with a storm update. Was it really that necessary to have all that coverage for a thunderstorm? I think it's a MN thing. They don't do that in WI. Sure, run the message at the bottom, but interrupting should be for emergencies only. Back to the impending storm. I saw some lightening, but that was about it. When I left for work this morning before the sun was up, all I saw was some small branches on my front steps. I came home tonight and I noticed that there's two huge tree branches (about 6-8 feet) in my yard. And a third lying on the roof. I never even realized the storm was that bad. I am such a sound sleeper. If I can get to sleep before something happens, I'll never hear it. Although, it is really kind of scary that I can sleep through a big storm. It's sort of dangerous. I've always been like this, though. I recall a vacation where there was a fire drill at the hotel and if my mom hadn't have been there, I'd have slept through it. It was like that in the dorm, too. My roommates had to wake me up. What can I say, I'm a good sleeper.

i don't think it's an MN thing, but a FOX NEWS thing. they are all Doomsday all the time, so they are contractually obligated to ruin people's evenings by interrupting season finales with constant weather updates.

i sleep like a dead person, too. which is both good and bad.
