what a wild ride we had last night! wow!
it all started out with some casual thunderstorm warnings…. possible chances of some rain and thunder….
it ended with gusts up to 70 mph and the biggest, fattest raindrops i think i’ve ever seen in my life! we were at football practice… well, it was supposed to be football practice except that no one showed up…. so anyway, we were sitting around chit-chatting when the wind began to switch – the house to pitch and suddenly the hinges started to unhitch
but thankfully, there was no witch trying to thumb a hitch on her broomstick….
and we are still in kansas toto…
but man o man! we made it to the car and began the arduous drive home… in that type of wind and rain, well, i sorta despise driving. we made it home safely to discover that the power was off… imagine that. and it remained off. until sometime after 1 in the morning… dang it. i ate cold pizza for dinner. coach at an orange. he played spider solitaire and i read a book. we tried not to use our phones in case the power didn’t come. we needed to save the phone juice for the morning alarm clocks ha! and hot? oh yeah… hot.
this morning all is pretty and sparkly clean. the sky has some lingering clouds but the sun is peeking through a bit. i heard this thing was a cold front… so instead of the high being 97 today, it’s 87… i’ll take it!
in the meantime, a friend of mine from high school posted an old picture of me and oh my! the wings took about 1/2 can of aerosol hairspray to keep in place…. and the overalls? my favs… i still love overalls although i don’t currently own any…
