I don’t know about you, but it seems the weeks are flying by faster and faster. Shut up, I heard one of you say I’m just getting old. Just because they say time flies by faster when you get older doesn’t mean we’re getting old, right? Tell me I’m right. Please.
So Mother Nature is in rare form these days, isn’t she? The last couple of weeks we’ve ended up with freeze warnings practically every night – then yesterday the heat was on. Our high was supposed to be 87, but of course it ended up at 92. In April. I think Mother Nature confused her “A” months and thought it was August.
I’d love to get paid a lot of money like the weather people do to be wrong all the time – it was predicted there was no chance of rain over the weekend, so imagine our surprise when it sounded like the sky was falling:
I guess the weather people were right though, because it wasn’t rain it was hail. That’s not a great representation, but it gives you an idea of the beginnings of the freak hail storm we got – I may be crazy, but not crazy enough to stand out there longer than to get a couple of quick shots with my phone. I also didn’t get the ‘after’ mode when it ended up being several inches of hail after the blustery wind died down.
I know it’s nothing compared to what other people got farther West than us (and my heart goes out to those affected by the tornadoes over the weekend), but when it’s totally unexpected it just proves that the weather is a finicky thing. Like our 10-day forecast (just picture the first ‘high’ that’s a dash as 90 to 92):
Dropping 20 degrees from yesterday to today, another 10-ish more tomorrow. It’s been fluctuating like that for the last six months. Crazy. No wonder I still have a tinge of a cold that’s hanging on for dear life.
See what’s happening here? I sat down at my laptop with nothing in my brain to write about, so what do I do? Talk about the weather. I might need some serious professional help.
Oh here, this is better:
Random Comment from the Princess Nagger:
“When I die, I want my last words to be: “I left a million dollars in…” then just die without finishing my sentence. No one would know where the million dollars was.”
I didn’t even have a response to that, I was laughing too hard. Of course I had to whip out my phone and add it in my notes just so I wouldn’t forget, and so I could relay it to you. Naturally she was looking over my shoulder as I did to make sure I got it down correctly. Good thing, I wouldn’t want to misquote her or anything.
Yes, she is a constant source of entertainment, why do you ask?
