It seems everyone is talking about weather right now as it’s so unusually warm and dry here. A weather specialist on talk radio said we will have an uncommonly warmer and drier winter this year and so far he’s been right. According to weather.com temps will hit a bright blue-sky high of 67 today with not a cloud to see and I’m looking forward to my 7 miles this morning in the sunshiney world; everything always looks so much cleaner and more colorful after a storm. I’m meeting one of my BRFF’s, Beckybee Elkins to do three with her and then finish up the other four myself.
I think this morning is most especially clear and bright due to the very large storm that blew rapidly through last night. The local TV weather geeks were having a blast, it was like they were re-living Prom Night but this time they had a date. We had the possibility of tornadic activity and hail and high winds with triangular rigidity in the upper stratosmaticsphere and I think possibly the reappearance of Moses with two stone tablets.
The funny thing is that the animals went crazy. Murph, who chills like a pill, was in a quivering shivering ball underneath my chair and Chunk came screaming down the hallway, hit the doorway with a leap that put her slamming into my gut with her eyeballs rolling, tore up the front of my shirt and launched herself from my shoulder onto the bed where she attacked an empty printer cartridge (I shall never again fear death by printer cartridge, I know I’m in good hands.)
Bowing to pressure – everyone else on FB is talking about the weather, I’d better check and see if we’re all gonna die now, or later – I found myself sitting in the den with a burning candle and the large battery powered lantern, locked into place and buried under a dog and a cat. Hubs came home and after a minute of Marco! Polo! he was able to trace my voice and dislodge me.
The power never went out, the roof did not blow off and we ate our meatloaf and mashed potatoes in a warm, well lit house. The animals cowered under the table.
And here’s a pic of my pretty, happy run this morning –
