Would you all please remember that we live where tornadoes can and do happen . . any time but for sure during the spring. Vince and I always watch the weather and if there’s a chance of scary weather, we don’t leave the house. The weather people almost always know when weather conditions are right for tornadoes to develop and we usually hear about the chances for days before the actual time arrives. Even when Joplin was hit with that horrible tornado almost 10 years ago, and I was headed to the area to teach, I took the old Honda because they had been predicting really bad weather.
We have a safe room here at the house, it’s registered with the sheriff’s office so eventually someone would check on us. We keep food and water for us and for Rita and Boots down there. So, if the worst ever happens and communications aren’t working so I can’t post, you don’t need to worry about us. We’re going to be safe.
Having said all that . . there has been no talk of tornadoes in the very near future. In fact, I haven’t heard them mentioned at all as far as future problems but my guess is that it’s just a matter of time but nothing is happening any time soon . . as far as I’ve heard. I just wanted to remind you not to worry about us.
But . . we do have this:
I’ve had the air conditioner on for the past few days! Tonight it’s going to get down to 28. I brought the potatoes in, and the bay leave trees that had been sitting on the deck. I’ll open the bedroom windows and enjoy one last night of sleeping under multiple quilts. Vince would not be happy sleeping with the windows open when it’s 28 degrees!
I love winter, though I didn’t love it so much being here by myself with the long, dark evenings and having to worry about keeping pipes from freezing since this was an unusual winter for so many of us. Even though I like spring, I don’t like what happens next so I’m already looking forward to fall! 🙂
