Wait, so you are telling me that, my day started out with an earthquake, then I expiernced the smell of smoke from a fire, then I got a text warning me about a dust storm, and now I'm seeing lightning, that is a new record. I love this day.

LOL Michael. Just another day in Southern California right? I was watching TV and saw the warning and thought it was a test as usual, like the whole of my 53 yrs, and BANG!!! A real notice finally! It was so cool to finally see one! Now they need a way to turn on the TV and give the warning while we are asleep.

Brenda, I don't think those other flash flood warnings are test. They never happen but I think they are real, and they do them just to be cautious I see those things on TV all the time.
