We had thunder and lightning this morning between 4 and 5. I know this because I had a quadraped (yes, too much Enterprise for me) barking and whining and begging at me to stop it. Literally. He would beg in that meerkat position and would not take the explanation of how I can't turn the wind off as good enough.
In the end, I had to yell at him to be quiet. He doesn't like being up on the bed, wouldn't take comfort from me and wouldn't settle. And 5am was approaching. I don't like sighting 5am much.
