Storms Everywhere!

We had a near miss last night with storms poping up all
over Oklahoma, particularly in the I 44 corridor. Moore
was in line for a direct hit again but escaped with only
tennis ball hail and flooding. The little town of
Bridgecreek was hit and so was Norman near I 35. I haven't
watched the news this morning but these unstable conditions
are to last through Sunday. We got a lot of rain and
the lightening was spectacular.

I went to Adrienne's 4.0 banquet and the food was not
very good although it was catered by an Italian place.
I had a good time and visited with one of Bobby's childhood
friends. She had to play in the jazz band as well as be
an honoree. The jazz band is outstanding and great
entertainment. She plans not to participate next year
since she is so overloaded. I hope the band director will
talk her in to continuing.

I think I'd stay home until Monday.

Good idea. Some of the highways are closed because of overturned cars
and trucks.

Florida is the lightning capital of the country. Sometimes when I am caught on my bike, I get really worried. But if I am safe in the house, I love to watch the show over the water.

We had a lot of lightning and it scares Rex to death but I like to
watch it out of the north windows. Rex would not go out to pee without
me going with him because the storms make it so scary for him.

FEMA needs to use its wiles to convince the residents of Moore that there are better places to live. Do the insurance companies still sell those people property damage insurance?

Our insurance is out of sight because of Moore. Houses are very cheap
there, for good reason. I would not live there but people continue to
take the chance.

In my world, lightning is only spectacular from watching it on video you people out there must have what it takes to live in this conditions. Always, excuse my droids punctuation, it's still learning English.

I guess it is all about what you are used to. Spring is storm season
here but our winters are milder and the growing season longer. I have
four medium size green tomatoes already!!

We get lightening big time, but with trees that tower over the house I use words other than "spectacular" to describe it.

You don't have lightning? We get some great storms here in the CO mountains: it causes a lot of our forest fires. I think I remember lightning storms when I lived in Vermont many decades ago, but could be wrong.

Stay safe

We have an underground shelter now so we can go down there if it gets
really bad.
