The Sky is Falling!
Alright...I'm sitting here waiting for the sky to fall.
I've been up since 4am anticipating Apocolyptic weather. Hail storms of death. Tornadoes. Driving rain. I listened to meteorologist David Hartman rattle on for hours on end this morning...and all we've had is a spattering of rain and a steady breeze. Hmmmm....
It has made Roxie absolutely a nervous wreck. I've never seen any living creature be so skittish. She's paced, whined, shook, and tried to mold her body into mine. I guess I'll have to deal with this for a few more hours, as David Hartman just broke in on my mindless viewing of Entertainment Tonight to show there is a big thunderstorm in Vicksburg heading our way. It may move north, but those weather fronts usually come our way. Right now, however, the sun is peeking out of the clouds.
I'm hoping we don't get hail, because I cannot put any vehicles inside my garage. It is filled with the furnishings from both Nicole and Joseph's apartments. Plus anything anyone decides we no longer need in the house. If we get a hail storm, my car and Joe's truck will be pockmarked toast. I keep thinking that some day we will have our house back, and I'll be able to pull into the garage when I come home. Once upon a time I used to do that...
Bad weather has a way of making me want to be lazy...fact that I've been up since 4am might have something to do with it. I want to take a nap, but with bad weather threatening to roll through, I may be sleeping with one eye open. David Hartman just came on TV again saying a super cell thunderstorm has formed west of Vicksburg. He's really giving the Storm Shield 16 Live Dopplar Radar a real workout this morning! He's used every bell and whistle that system has...including Pin Point Predictor Plus. I think this is a big adrenaline rush for him.
So, hopefully the sky won't fall...and the weather will pass on through with no bad effects...and Roxie will be able to once again roam free outside, chasing squirrels and birds beneath sunny skies.
Blessings to all who read this!
