We all have heard of saved by the bell, but how about saved by the snooze? Raymond Bowling is counting his blessings this morning because thanks to his snooze alarm, he wasn't impaled by a tree.
Raymond Bowling of Austin Indiana usually sets his alarm for 5:30 AM and hits the snooze button once to start his day. On this particular morning, he wasn't quite ready to take on the day after the 9 minute snooze, so he grabbed a few extra minutes of shut eye.
He then woke up with a start to find a tree where he would have been standing to brush his teeth, if he had gotten up on time.
Dozens of homes in the area were damaged because of severe rain, lightning and wind.
Now that we know he's okay, his friends are starting to have some fun with the story.
I guess the next time the snooze button goes off, you could have an excuse to stay in bed a few minutes longer.
