The old saying about March - In like a lion, out like a lamb? All I can say right now is - are you kidding me?
The wind has been whipping all night long - wonder if my trash cans are still standing? I know our outdoor patio chairs have been toppled & sent flying into the yard.
I kept telling the dog that I was glad she wasn't a little bitty thing or she would have blown away. Envisioning a teeny little dog getting picked up by the wind & sent flying somehow makes me giggle! And please don't email me about hating dogs & that thought makes me a bad person. I wouldn't really want to see that happen. I love dogs & couldn't fathom how I would feel if it was my dog who got blown into the next town. But in a cartoon, movie-ish kind of way (insert caveat: No Animals Were Hurt In The Making of This Stupid Thought) - it is sort of funny.
The wind whipping & all the horrible things it does to my hair reminds me of when we went on vacation several years ago. We were on our way from my in-laws to my mom's (a 11 hour drive). Had no air conditioning so we had the windows down. By the time we got to my mother's house, my hair was a bird's nest of tangles. And what does she say as soon as we walk in? Something about how my hair was a mess & did I ever comb it? Note to all who actually see me day in & day out - especially on windy days: If I am going to be in & out a lot - then I'm probably not going to bother too much with my hair. It doesn't take much to frizz it or tangle it. Be nice - say nothing to me! It will eventually get combed. But unless you are in my home when you see me - the likelihood is you are seeing me OUT and about which means I will have been OUT in the wind (rain, snow, hurricane like weather - well you get the picture).
And as Forrest Gump once said, "And that's all I'm going to say about that."
Have a nice day - don't blow away!
