I was going to finish up my Christmas shopping today but from the looks of it outside, I doubt that's going to happen.
The winds are about 40mph bow at 4:40 am and they are only beginning to come in. According to the news we are going to have the storm of the decade. The last storm we had like this was back in the mid 80'd and I had to work so I was out driving in that up. Nor rain or sleet or snow. I drown a Plymouth Champ, brand new, in the flood that followed the rain just trying to get home. After it was all over my insurance paid off the Plymouth and I got a Thunderbird next so ended up happy with that deal. Not that night though.
Whenever we have weather that's bad my thoughts are on the animals out there that don't have adequate shelter. My heart just hurts for them and I keep my eye out for them. I think that enough people out there love animals to at least bring them in for the storm. Please. Help the animals. I cam't keep thinking about that or I will make myself sick.
Now I sit here wondering why I didn't go buy candles yesterday when I knew this was coming. There will not be any driving today. I am not getting stuck in another flood. There is already debry floating around in the air and all the tall Palm trees are swaying back and forth. There isn't a bird in the sky. I can't help get a little excited at the prospect of a big storm, its just in my nature. I most certainly would never be a storm chaser but lets say that I can appreciate nature's furry once in awhile. Except of worrying about the animals that get stuck out there, and humans.
We have the only homeless person we know on the couch as we speak. It's Gordon, Mike's friend from high school. We have him and his faithful friend and companion a big black lab called "Little Girl". Why he is homeless is his business but he comes for holidays and visits when he needs a hot meal. This man grew up with my son and either Gordon was at our house or my son Michael was at his house. His parents were alive then. He was born to older parents who were well into their 40's when he came along.
Oh no, I just remembered that I have to go pick up my Metformin at Walgreens this am. Shoot!! Can't go without that. They don't open until 8:00 I wonder what this storm will be doing by then, well I guess I will find out. For now I am going to try to go back to sleep.
It's 4:05. G' night.....
