we were 'SPOSED to get severe weather. i HATE it when the meteorologists lie to me. [Diane] and i have been preparing for bad weather for the past 2 days it's been predicted.. [she even vacummed the spidey webs outta the basement in case we had to go down]... we were watching the tornadic outbreaks on T.V. in Texas, Kansas, and Colorado... rubbing our hands together like 2 lil rug rat girlie girls in anticipation of what we would get when it reached Omaha, Ne. i think one of us actually peed her panties..
we are very D.I.S.C.O.P.O.I.N.T.E.D.
all we got was a few flashes of lightening [no thunder] in full strobe light fashion,
a 5 minute downpour of rain....
..a puff of breeze
then nuttin, honey. now it's humid, still, and windless.
don't get me wrong, i would nevah in a million gazillion years ever want to have a tornado that hurts anyone or damages their property but damn it, i would LERVE to see one from a distance. Diane and i like to drive to an open area to watch the storm roll in and there was just nuttin to see tonight.
it was more of a letdown than when my breast milk came in, back in the day.
lying bastards, they are.
we wanted loud thunder and lots of bolts of lightening, some good wind.. [although we DID have that whilst we were stood outside.. had beans today]. maybe a few blown down branches, some car alarms going off in the 'hood... hail the size of watermelons, electrical outages, [oh just for about an hour or so].. people running up and down the street screaming "the storm is coming.. the storm is COMING".
did we get any of that?
we got fumes when we wanted a full tank of gas.
we got crumbs when our appetites were waiting for a big meal.
we got farts instead of tornados.
oh well. there's always next time.
