So the thing about a tropical storm is, it’s not scary dangerous like a hurricane. Don’t misunderstand, it can be deadly if a tornado drops down out of the sky, as several did this past weekend. And if you’re foolish enough to go running around in the surf or swollen creek and rivers, drowning is a distinct possibility. But on the whole, if you use common sense and pay attention, you will get through it.
However, this one, even if she is named for me, is a pain in the butt. The bands of rain come through, dropping lots of rain, so I stay inside. Then the sun comes out, the rain stops, and I make plans to run errands. By the time I get my act together (okay – it takes me longer than most people…) the sky grows dark and drops a deluge once again.
All I want to do is go to the ATM and run over to Chipotle’s. Is that too much to ask? Rats, the sun is out again. I gotta go!
