Our smoke/carbon monoxide detectors do a funny thing..
They let us know when lightning is striking by beeping.
Sometimes it is just one, sometimes it is all of them triggered by just the one. I have Googled the phenomena and we are slightly abnormal for experiencing this in our household.
(If yours doesn’t do it, then I believe that you are the weird one.)
We haven’t had too many awesome storms this summer, so I am glad when it lets me know when one is here. The best is when it goes off in the middle of the night. I nearly wet my bed every time it happens. Then the thunder comes and I am not scared.
This morning as the girls were getting their hair done, the detector beeped, and Lynn immediately dropped to the floor and crawled to the door.
We all had a good laugh when the thunder followed-up pretty soon after.
At least she remembers the proper procedures.
