Then … it rained. And I mean rain with lightning, thunder, wind, hail, flood warnings … locusts, pestilence, and thirty days and nights of darkness — okay, I added those last three for the heck of it. But I was accurate up through and including the flood warnings. 🙂
Um, the picture is not mine, but a free stock image. I stay away from the windows during violent storms. But that is the kind of lightning I saw as I hurried to get home from my Pilates class. I got my 1999 Volvo into the garage before the hail hit. Whew! Old Bessie doesn’t need anymore dents. (Yes, I name my car.)
This afternoon (yesterday for you reading this on Thursday, May 22nd), my area of Indiana has experienced the fabulous “training effect” of storms. One after another strong storm, with all of the above but for the locusts, pestilence, and 30 days and nights of darkness, has blown over my little abode — and is not going to stop until later tonight with chances of more lovely storms tomorrow (that would be Thursday, May 22nd).
So, I am currently typing as fast as I can between storms. I do not want my computer on or even plugged in. The last electrical storm we had blew out my son’s very expensive desk top.
That is not gonna be me.
I have my next Prime book on my desk top. Yes, it is backed up on an external hard disk and a jump drive — both of which are attached to electrical things – – and thank the Lord, on Dropbox, which is, I’m sure — but not totally– backed up somewhere in case their server is fried. But I don’t take chances.
So, this is my blog. Sorry, it wasn’t about anything world-changing or exciting or my next book. Catch me week after next, I’ll post a tempting excerpt from my soon-to-be-done Prime Imperative — which would’ve been done today, but for the damn electrical storm.
Stay safe everyone. Mother Nature is in a pissy-ass mood this year.
