This may be too honest for some people. Tuesday night tornadoes were spotted all around us. I have never seen so many sightings and so much jumping around. This went on all evening. Normally I am not a worrier about weather, AT ALL. I just wish instead of breaking into the TV, they would pick one station, and then run the ticker on the other stations. My next thought was “I sure hope we don’t lose power because I need to charge my phone and laptop”. Just being honest. It gets worse. I actually had the thought “I hope this is over tomorrow night so it does not mess up American Idol”! At one point, the weatherman seemed to have some panic in his voice and I realized I had my pajamas on…so I walked in my husbands man cave and ask him if he thought I should get dressed. I knew he was watching the weather on another channel…His exact words were, “I will let you know if we need to get in a bathroom”and I went right back to what I was doing. We never lost power and within a couple of hours the storms had moved on. This was not one of those scared to death kind of nights, just mildly concerned that they were so many sightings. I did call both the kids to make sure they were hunkered down…they were and they seemed about as concerned as I was. (not very)
As I look at all the pictures and read the blogs, I know that could have been us the night before. Why was it them and not us? That’s the part I don’t get. Life is fragile, life changes in a moment and though I know these things personally, I am reminded of it again this week. And to be honest I struggle with it.
As many times as I have watched this, and I happen to be watching when it happened…I want to post it again. I don’t think any of us can see it too many times….especially this week.
On a lighter note, thanks for all the tips for Amanda. I will be sure and let you know what works. And now for a smile…Jack and his BUBBLES.
