Freakish Friday!

O_O For the first time in my life, I saw my homestate of Connecticut pelted with like three tornado warnings over the course of two hours. Am I exaggerating? Maybe? I don't know but when they issued us the first tornado watch I've ever seen in my existence I was ready to start running around the house, flailing my arms and screaming. Severe weather-phobic? Maybe? I remember having one, maybe two tornado warnings a year but this year we've come too close for comfort.

Now that I think of it we had a tornado watch for Hurricane Gloria. I remember I started crying!

This time my brother was a complete bastard about letting us take cover in the basement. This is a guy who injured his knee from sitting on his ass too much in front of the computer and kept screaming obscenities at random points in the day (even when my father could hear) because he "just had to vocalize." I hope a straight-line wind rips his head off.

Thank God we only heard one rumble of thunder. We were spared! I guess we'll find out what really happened in a few days but I think I need a good stiff drink after that one.

Just in case any people from the Midwest think I'm a sissy, I can shovel snow with the best of them!

Welcome to the wonderful world of low-topped convection. -_-

Well, you know, CT has its very own Tornado Alley. I remember when an F4 trashed part of Hamden, back when we were just little sprouts. Memories...
