Thunderstorms, tornadoes and yes, a little sunshine

Ahh…spring…when you never know from one minute to the next what kind of weather you’re going to have.  It was cloudy when I woke up.  A little later, I couldn’t believe that I saw the sun peeking through the clouds.  It’s been so long since I’ve seen any sunshine at all, I wasn’t quite sure what it was.

I was able to go outside for a walk today.  I walked on the sidewalks though, no trail walking for me for a while.  I’m afraid it’d be like walking through a swamp.  I’d probably lose my shoes in all the mud.  It seemed like a lot of people were getting outside while they could.  I ended up standing around talking to a neighbor for about an hour after I got back home.  I think everyone is tired of being inside and eagerly awaiting nicer days.

Earlier today, the weather forecasters were calling for tornadoes tonight, but I think they must have revised that.  All I’m hearing now are severe thunderstorm warnings.  Thunderstorms are bad enough at night, but still much less frightening than those blasted tornado sirens going off when you’re in a deep sleep.  I have my tornado/storm preparedness kit ready just in case…battery operated radio, flashlight, blanket and of course, I’d have to grab Spooky.  Hopefully it won’t be called into play tonight.

April showers definitely bring May flowers…
