Okay, I admit it, I'm clueless -- I understand snowstorms, earthquakes, landslides, but thunderstorms are beyond my ken. The last time I was really in one, I think I was about 10 years old. Even the cats are confused. One slept through the big one we had today. The other own looked up and kinda said, "huh???" The third had the sense to know cats are supposed to be scared and chased the dog away from me and curled up as close as she could get. (The dog tried to get under the bed but only hit his head, so on the bed by me was the best he could do. We are actually getting storm warnings but they just tell us there is a big storm here. They don't tell us what to do. So, we are now having another downpour, the streets are flooded and I have no clue how close it is because it is rolling thunder that doesn't quit with lightning in between it. I know you'r supposed to be able to get the distance as to how far away the lightning is (1 mile per second between the lightning and the thunder), but when do you need to start unplugging and what do you need to unplug? HELP!!!!
