I’m not knocking Texas. It was good for us while we were there and if not for Chad being here, we would probably have stayed there and been perfectly happy.
I’ve mentioned before that I grew up in southwest Louisiana and, even though it doesn’t, I would have sworn that it rained every single day there. I have naturally curly hair and it was long and would be bigger and more frizzy as the day went on . . every day.
I love storms so long as there are no tornado threats and I can do without hail but a little thunder and rain and that is the weather I love most.
It did seem like in Texas we had months of no rain, and even when we did get rain, it was only a few times a year. We had to walk probably 60 feet from the house to the carport and I hardly remember, in 10 years, ever getting rained on going to the shop.
Over the weekend, I went out and sat on the steps and it was just breathtaking. I could hear thunder in the distance. It was cloudy. Everything was so green. There was a gentle breeze blowing. I love the weather here – but not the tornadoes!
One night there was a LOT of thunder. Rita was fairly calm . . a little upset but not bad. Jeremy texted me and said “Are you loving this storm?” They know I love the storms! We have days when it rains all day; days when it’s bright and sunny all day, days when it’s sunny, then cloudy, then raining. It’s nice to have variety!
I’m supposed to go get Addie Friday. I asked Chad if he was going to be home since he’s off on Friday. He said “Yes! It’s supposed to rain all day.” I’m not crazy about driving in the rain but the road to their house is a lightly traveled highway. I don’t like interstate driving at 75 miles per hour in the rain, nor do I like driving the busy streets of Joplin in the rain but I’ll be fine to go get Addie.
