I keep waiting to hear my TV make that squeal siren and start reading "IT'S ALL FAKE! THE ELECTION WAS STOLEN!" start scrolling across the screen.
That reminds me. It was 1pm local time Jan 6 when our nuke sirens went off. (OK, tornado alert.) Of course, it was the standard scheduled monthly test, but I was watching the riot escalate at the time.

Then about 2:30 an EMERGENCY ALERT card came up on the TV. It was another required monthly test, but they usually do those at like, 3am.

Both of those sounds I find particularly hair-raising. Especially so that day.
