No, not real tornadoes. Just in my dreams. Or nightmares, rather.
Summer is finally arriving here in Rome, with temperatures heading into the 90s this week.
So it’s time to do a very un-Italian thing: close all the windows and shades, and turn on the AC. This beast:
It roars, not unlike a jet engine.
So last night I went to bed psyching myself up for having to get up early this morning – a little too much, because I slept restlessly. And having the AC on for the first time, my subconscious translated the roaring sound into nightmares about tornadoes!
I’ve been close to tornadoes, but never experienced one passing near enough for me to have heard the sound. I only know what others have told me about the experience.
Maybe tonight I’ll dream about roaring jet engines… taking me back to the land of central air – and real tornadoes!
