...another line of storms on the way, not as powerful, supposedly as the last, but still I feel butterflies in my stomach...


 

That big storm that brought with it destruction,

Have yet still, to complete reconstruction,

And every storm that comes along,

Does of me worry unless I sit here,

And smoke from my bong…J

 

Now I understand,

Totally & completely first hand,

How a storm that knocked down my tree,

And did come to us unplanned,

Can scare me in the future,

Especially when all around still does lie debris…

 

I hope this inordinate fear,

Does someday soon from my memory clear,

I don’t need any more stress in my life,

So don’t let my outwardly calm attitude sway you,

Still to myself; scared I do appear…

Get ready for lots more of them, Bro. We just had yet another violent thunderstorm last night after enduring yet another 100 Degree day. But don't worry about a thing, our sage leaders say Global Warming is just a myth.

It is what it is, Ed. The lightning storms you talk of struck a house 4 doors up from us yesterday. Fire smoldered in the eaves all night long and no one knew it. The husband awoke at 4 A.M. to find their home burning down on them. Thank God they got out safely.

They say when you write your troubles
down that less stress will come...
nature will continue to do what it wants,
but you can always write about it...at any
rate, stay safe *Ed*

I too live in a very active stormy area..

Ed, please don't live your life scared. Nature will do what it will do. Try your best to prepare for it and hunker down and get through it.
