The rainy days a man saves for usually seem to arrive during his vacation. ~ Author Unknown
When Dear Hubby called me from the airport this morning once he'd gotten thru security he said, "I hear you had a tornado warning last nite!" Say what?! That was the first I'd heard of that! I do remember waking up sometime in the nite, hearing thunder and the rain pelting the roof, but I've grown to love the sound of it after living here for a year now. It doesn't frighten me...it lulls me to sleep. Deep sleep, obviously. Dear Hubby said "Didn't you watch the weather last nite?" I told him whenever he's gone for any length of time I don't watch TV at all unless I decide to watch something I have taped on the DVR. When I slid the drapes shut last nite around 8 pm it was dusky and looked normal to me. Well, people here tell us Michigan weather can change in a minute and I guess they're right. You know, I thought I heard an alarm go off last nite but I thought it was on a car. Maybe it was the tornado warning? I don't know. When I picked up our drapes at the dry cleaner's this morning the woman who helped me asked me if we'd had any damage from the wind last nite at our house. I must have been unconscious. I didn't even hear it.
Regardless, today it's beautiful and sunny and warm. I have the front door open and the window in the living room. Sun is streaming in. Birds are chirping everywhere. And it was snowing in Portland when Dear Hubby left for the airport. They're having our weather! Go figure! What a strange winter it's been.
