Alert alert

I've gotten emergency alerts on my phone before, but always at home. Today I'd met Erik-from-Australia at Charlie's Kitchen, and at some point my phone started buzzing. I quickly shushed it, thus discovering that alerts aren't like text messages, you can't find them again after dismissing them, but I did catch "flash flood". What really struck me was that lots of other phones were doing the same thing, a rather surreal experience. Erik says the TV dipped in volume for a few seconds too, though from my own memory I couldn't tell you that there was a TV to have a volume. His phone did not go off, leaving him going "what? what?"; it did report a couple of alerts later, that mine didn't. Neither of us have a Boston area code, though I do have a local billing address; I also have Android vs. his iPhone, which is my leading hypothesis for the different alert behavior. A carrier difference could apply as well.

I fear no flooding personally. But I met him dressed for 24 C, and it's dropped to 12. Even I find more layers desirable when it's 12 and rainy and *windy*.
