The storm wasn’t as bad as I thought it would be. We’re safe and alive . . for those who have inquired. Just like everyone told me – – it was a bit of rain, a bit of wind and that was really about it for us. The current winds are 10-12 mph with an approximate rainfall of 3 inches for the day.
Overall – not bad. We lived. It was all fine – further proving the extent of my storm neurosis to Chris and family. It’s ok, though – I can take it. I’m neurotic when it comes to storms, I fully admit that fact. No sense trying to deny it.
I’ve worked all day long since it rained and stormed all day. I did take a break to go outside and sit in the jacuzzi for an hour. It’s really kinda cool to sit in a 104 degree jacuzzi while the rain is falling all around you with winds gusting – – giving a nice cool breeze in comparison to the nice hot water. It’s where I take my coffee breaks down here.
Now? I just finished up 10 hours of straigh work. I’m settling in with a Bloody Mary (with a BIG dash of Habanero) and a chaser. In about 20 minutes, it’ll all be behind me and I can move on and start acting like a normal person, again.
