Wait a Minute
Holy guacamole! The tornado sirens went off this evening and whup-whup-whupped us straight into the basement. Just me, two dogs, and a cat hanging out while Mother Nature howled all around us. Luckily, it appears no damage was done at our house (Note: might need to amend this statement tomorrow--the light of day could tell another story) although some surrounding communities weren't so lucky. Property destruction and minor injuries.
While we hunkered down I realized we have a serious lack of basement entertainment. Playing poker simply isn't working out. The dogs keep arguing with each other and the cat always cheats at cards.
However, our weather lately certainly hasn't been boring. Over the past three weeks we've experienced nearly every scenario except an earthquake. Nearly a foot of snow. 80+ degree temperatures. Wind, lightning, thunder, torrential rain, and a tornado or two. It's springtime in Missouri and you never know what you're going to get. Like the old saying goes, if you don't like the weather around here, well, just wait a minute.
