So ... New England had a crazy day, weather-wise, yesterday! Just after lunch, our town emergency system called and told me we were under a tornado watch. Tornado? REALLY?
We've had them before, but so seldom as to be nearly non-existent. We aren't the midwest, folks. We have mountains and trees and valleys... our terrain alone just isn't conducive to tornadic activity. Apparently Mother Nature thought otherwise, however.
Though the weather around my place settled down pretty well (we had some wind, rumbles and a little heavy rain), south of us was another story. My friend, Michele, reported HUGE hail and heavy winds. There were trees downed in her town and other damage.
Worst hit, though was Springfield, MA, who actually did have a tornado hit:
It's amazing watching it suck up all that water from the river before hitting the town.
Folks, we're used to blizzards and ice storms and even hurricanes. But tornadoes???
Today promises to be much calmer and the storm cleared out the extreme heat and humidity, so that's even better.
Still... tornadoes? Sheesh...
Yesterday, Dru asked me the status of the story I'd hoped to submit this past weekend. Well... I'm doing another scene. I know, I know ... but it needed it. It just keeps growing. If I can manage to find time in the next few days, though, it should be done. Finding time is the problem.... life has been particularly crazy this week and I barely have time to breathe.
I keep thinking life will settle down. Apparently not. *sigh*
You Should Win a Grammy
You are extroverted and sociable. You feel comfortable at any fete or soiree.
You like to be the center of attention. You have a flair for working a room.
You have no problem getting front of a group and singing your heart out. You were born to perform.
You are both a risk taker and a showoff. Whenever possible, you go for the glory.
Though I have no fear of standing in front of crowds speaking or anything else (hello... umpteen years of drama), the rest really isn't me.
