Noticed that a tornado touched down in NYC this morning. And folks say that climate change is a joke. Really?
We have endured terrific storms each evening for the past three nights. Wednesday evening, the weather was so severe until we were herded into the back area of the store as a safety precaution. The shoppers grumbled mightily. Unbelievable! Things flying around outside, as though they were in a blender, and you're pissed because your shopping has been interrupted...for your safety? Please. Not much damage to the home front, thankfully. Just a downspout which needs to be reattached.
The next night, while I was out in the car on a break, the winds began to kick up again. The fascia on the top of the building began flapping. Uh oh, lawsuit waiting to happen. The car rocked so much until I thought that I might be safer inside the store, so I bailed. Praying mightily all the way across the parking lot that I wouldn't be blown away. If it could rock Abby, I wouldn't stand a chance. Happened to look back at the sky and there was a beautiful rainbow. Unreal.
On Friday night, just as I was leaving for the night, it started all over again. Not as much wind in this location but a terrific storm, nevertheless. Lots of small branches strewn about in the yard. The makeshift trellis for a rosebush, beside the fence, bit the dust again. But the homestead is still standing.
Climate change is not a joke, hoax, or a delusion dreamed up by someone with a political agenda. It is real, girls and boys. Believe it.
Be Safe. Be Blessed.
