It never rains like this in the My Town. 

My hotel room windows look like I'm driving through a car wash, minus the spot free rinse…the windows leak and the wind is shrewing out there like a crazy bitch; the night I finally get some sleep… So I check the online NOAA weather and find that we're under a tornado watch, plus some other, lesser watches, thunderstorm, flooding, Piggly Wiggly closures, sustained bad hair….  I assume someone or thing will wake me if I have to go find a root cellar.  This seems like the kind of place that has them. Somewhere. Probably I'll have to take a cab to the Root Cellar district. 

On the positive side it is 67 degrees out.
