tornado watch

I was hoping for a cleansing rain, and maybe that will come, too. But like everything else, sometimes we have to take the bad with the good. Our online newspaper has a thick red “breaking news” alert across the digital masthead warning us all that Escambia and Santa Rosa counties are under a tornado watch.

The view outside my study window is green and calm, but when I walk outside, I see movement in the tops of big trees, a deep sway that makes me think of gospel singers in the grip. I feel a familiar heavy dampness in the air. Lou dog senses the fluctuating barometric pressure and whines.

    1. We did! It was beautiful, really. We got little wind (but no damage anywhere in our area) and a short period of intense cleansing rain which we badly needed, followed by beautiful sunshine. Thanks, Shaddy. Love you back. We’ve got to stick together! 🙂
