Well it's been quite a week here in my neck of the woods. We are ok here but many of my fellow Oklahoma neighbors have not been so lucky. First there were 3 days (and nights) of horrible tornado weather, not to mention the torrential rains. And now the floods are wrecking havoc on some folks. My thoughts and prayers are with them all.
We fared pretty well through it all. We got some high wind gusts and several inches of rain but no damage. It seems (so far anyway) that the range of foothills we live on have provided us with what I call a "rainshadow". (Sung to the tune of Moonshadow by Cat Stevens <wink> ) And although I know it's not "technically" correct it works for me. We've been here and for the most part storms seem to be diverted to our east or west. Not much, but enough so that many storms will veer around us and even sometimes reform again on the other side. Let's hope it stays that way. Going through these storms in an RV can be pretty nerve wracking to say the least.
In other news..... it seems that I've become really good at ticking folks off. I really didn't mean to... it just sort of happened. Email from one person this week asked that I read and post her article here. While I understand where this person was coming from, the fight she's fighting isn't my fight. That in itself offended her. And although I respect anyone's opinion, just because I'm vocal about what I perceived to be tyranny doesn't mean I'll just take up any fight or cause. Why is it that I'm suddenly supposed to? Looking back now I suppose the best thing I could have done was just not answer the email. I've ticked her off and am sure I've lost a reader over it. It happens I suppose but I sure do hate it. I've been a bit quiet here about some of the outrageous things going on in this country and around the world. If you want to see where I "vent" you are welcome to join me over on FaceBook. Just hit the Facebook link on your left or search for me there as SciFi Chick. Just don't do it if you are easily offended. I lean way to the right on most issues and have a sometimes warped sense of humor. You have been warned.
