Since I live in the central Florida area, I took it upon myself to buy the best weather radio/alert device I could get my paws on. This led to the purchase of the Midland WR-300 All Hazards Alert Radio. My dream involving tornadoes used to involve very near misses or me actually being consumed by the funnel, waking up shortly after. Since I acquired the radio, my dreams have shifted slightly. Now, the radio alerts me, with the storm pursuing right after.
Last night, I dreamed that I was having a small get together at my home. The radio siren went off soon after everyone was settled in and mingling. I checked the display to see "Tornado Warning." I turned and looked towards the window of the living room to see the skies had become black and blue with gusts of wind blowing through the street followed by a loud rumbling that grew with intensity until I could see a swirling mass of cloud literally a few feet away from the window. Everyone just sort of stood there, mesmerized by the twisting haze and debris. A great feeling a dread from the pit of my stomach surfaced, making me sick, but I snapped out of it. I screamed "Get down!" Everyone fell to the ground behind the couch, huddling together except one of my friends who walked closer to the window, arm extended toward it. I screamed his name and no, running to, grabbing, and then dragging him down to the floor. At that moment, the window exploded into millions of shards, sending the little daggers into my skin. I could feel myself being lifted off the ground for a moment, but then the pull decreased. I looked up to see the tornado continuing down it's laid-in course. That's when I woke up, out of breath. I had fallen asleep on the couch, under the very same living room window I had dreamed about.
