It was running day. UGH was my first thought. It's always so hard to get out there, but once you are actually out the door, you get just a twinge of exhilaration. Sometimes my coffee does the same thing. I have to admit the coffee twinge was winning on this morning.
As soon as I looked out the window, coffee won. It was raining pretty hard and kept up for quite some time. I'm definitely not complaining as we need the water and my body thanked me, though my brain kept saying GET OUT THERE!!! It's hard to quiet that little gremlin.
This is the last video of Foxy I took from the camera. I'm afraid since I last saw him/her, just my presence has maybe scared them away. I haven't put the camera out every night like I should, but when I have, there's nothing but kitty kitties. That makes me sad. Maybe it's just the time of year.
After lounging for way too long, it was time to head out to the Elks Lodge for dinner and the initiation of 28 more people. On the way, wasn't I surprised to hear that familiar weird beeping over the radio ... THIS IS A TEST ... only this time it wasn't.
Seems there was a tornado warning ... right here in California ... in four counties from the top down to the middle, directly North of my location. It was the GET TO COVER notification too. I don't think I've ever heard that in all my years here!! When we do have tornados, they look like this. Small in comparison to those back East.
The night moved along slowly. I didn't eat since I'm pretty "steaked" out!! If you've eaten as much steak as I have living on a cattle ranch, you would rather have chicken!! By 9:00 I was yawning like crazy. At long last it was over and I was headed home to my welcome reception from Mr. Cooper, who is now feeling better. Yup I'm happy about that!! Even happier to get that tuxedo off!!!
If it quits raining, I'll be out slapping my soles on the pavement for a bit, happy that I can still do it!!!
I'm glad you have that urge to run, not me though! Haha! We had a treadmill for quite a while, but now it's stopping when we don't want it to, so I consider that broken! No desire to replace it. Got our morning routine, but it doesn't include running LOL. WOW 28 people, that's great! Hopefully they continue to participate, could make it easier on you :)ReplyDelete
It's surprising that we have several new people who are volunteering for Bingo. Seems they never stay long, but at least they showed up a couple of times!!Delete
Would not want to hear that warning on the radio. Fingers crossed we never do. We held our breath when we spent the spring in Mississippi a few years ago but lucked out everything passed north and south of us. Nice to have had that visitor even if for just a short time.ReplyDelete
I was on pins and needles the entire time driving through tornado country. Definitely not my cup of tea!!!Delete
Yep, the local news made a big 90 minute presentation out of the spouts. For me, having lived in real Tornado Country, they would have hardly covered this since it was not a densely populated area, and they never came down to the ground. That night the news ran with the 'almost tornado' over and over again.ReplyDelete
Too funny!! We've had one or two in Chowchilla, but they have always been very small!!Delete
Good for you, running again! 🏃♀️ go girl!ReplyDelete
I could never get into anything faster than a speedy walk.
Love the bushy tail fox.
Scary hearing those sirens, like Deb, i hope never to hear one. We've been close enough a few times.
I threw away the weather radio because it would go off every hour! Scared the heck out of me!!Delete
