Red and green and yellow are indeed my favorite colors.
But, not here.
Today, March 2, 2012 is to be one of those days from Alabama to Illinois. It has already started here. The conditions are right for the pop up thunderstorms that can turn into destructive, long track deadly beasts that take lives and clear the landscape of all your worldly possessions. It was first predicted that our area would have the potential later this afternoon through the evening and night. However, it started around 9 a.m.
This particular storm passed just south of my county and into the immediate city to my east. The path took it to some of the same areas that were devastated on April 27, 2011. The initial unofficial reports so far are of some substantial damage to some homes.
These were taken from my front door earlier this morning.
It is warm, very warm and the sun peeks out here and there. As I understand it, the sun is not good as it only increases the temperature and makes things worse. I have always prided myself in not getting alarmed at the threat of bad weather, but Hubby just headed to the store for non-perishable food and water, and I have my bags packed with a few items that I don't want strewn over the countryside and my sturdy shoes worthy of walking in debris should I have to. Where am I going? We have a "storm room" in the basement with concrete walls and re-bar. That's where we will head should the radar indicate it's headed this way.
I really want to move somewhere where there are no tornadoes, hurricanes, wild fires, landslides, earthquakes.
If you know of a place let me know.
