Such A Weird Day!!

Wednesday, January 30, 2013

It started off at about 48 degrees (if I remember right). Then the rain started and I found out we were under a Tornado Watch - The 1st for 2013!! I got in a 30 minute Walk at my Job, then went out to Breakfast. It was raining pretty hard by then but the temperature was still near the 50s. There were several people at the restaurant (IHOP) who were enjoying a Long Breakfast, just trying to wait for the Rain to pass.
emoticon By the time I got home about Noon, the rain was pretty much over with. I waited until the Threats of bad weather passed, then went to the Park to get in my Long Walk. Except for the Wind it was really not too bad.
emoticon I was shocked when I saw a Turtle basking in one of the small ponds near the end of my walk!! I would have expected them all to be hibernating at this time of year!!
emoticon By Dinner Time the temperature was dropping rapidly and the Weather Dude says we may get Snow in the Panhandle. I think for a Weather Dude, Oklahoma would be an Ideal place to Live and Work. You would certainly NEVER get Bored, LOL!!
emoticon #1 Son got stopped today for an Expired Car Tag which he is almost sure he did buy last year, so not sure what happened there?! Then #2 Son got stopped and questioned briefly while he was out Walking this evening. I guess there had been a lot of 911 Calls this evening and the Cop saw a Male walking near a Business which has been vandalized several times. It was all good, in the end.
emoticon And I got in 16,160 Steps today!!

    Indeed, a weird day. Thank goodness there wasn't a tornado, afterall. And that you are safe back home. And a turtle?!

    It was in the 30's here and it's supposed to warm to around 50 - Overnight! Talk about weird. It's supposed to get wicked windy overnight & into tomorrow. Possible thunder storm too. Then the temp is supposed to drop back into the 30's and we might get flurries. But to me that's New England and you just deal with it. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Weather guys have an interesting job all over the world this year as everyone's weather is downright Bizarre and Unusual!! So glad you didn't get a Tornado though, don't really need that in the middle of winter!! I just can't imagine that!!
    Bitterly cold weather here has made outdoor walking simply unsafe and its a chore just to make it to the bridge club and back without getting frostbite :(
    Unlucky day for your sons! Hope #1 can prove his tags aren't expired!
    Have a Wonderful Wednesday!

    OK, I'll agree... it was a weird day... especially when you add in two sons getting stopped in the same day! Good job on the steps! Spark on!

    Oh, yeah, and weird weather... sort of IS normal, isn't it?
