I can’t believe it’s already Thursday. It’s crazy how fast this week is flying by.
We woke up to rain this morning. It was just a light drizzle at first and so I went out for a run. I only got in 7 miles because half way through it started to downpour and there was a good chance for thunderstorms, including lightning, so I decided to play it safe and head home.
Heading home was a pretty good idea….because we are currently under a threat of severe weather with a tornado warning.
The news guys get off on that shit. Weather radar is like crack to them. “We’re really seeing the wind shear pick up in this cell here Jim, take a look at this upper level pressure and the atmospheric low’s, this is a recipe for disaster. If you’re outside right now, I’d suggest you move indoors and away from the windows as this storm could get treacherous very quick”.
Bwahahaha, if I was outside, I highly doubt I’d be watching the cable news, and by quick do you mean faster than the 45 minutes you’ve been talking about this impending disaster? Just checkin.
And then after talking about how ‘slow moving’ this storm is all morning, they do a quick reverse, “Jim, this is a fast-moving cell here and should be all cleared out in the next half hour or so.”
Never ever trust a weather forecaster, like, ever.
I rely on my dogs to tell me if the weather is severe, if it is really going to be bad they huddle up in little balls or go hide in closets.
Balls out, completely relaxed…..Apparently, the weather is fine.
Despite the alleged tornadic activity, MacGyver and I went to an estate sale today and got some really awesome stuff. We scored an awesome, huge cedar trunk for 30 bucks and I found a very cool lamp for the vacation house. MacGyver also found some gun holsters which should come in handy since we are going to our cabin this weekend.
And speaking of this weekend, since we are going to the cabin, I’ll have to do my long run tomorrow. Not sure how many miles I’ll do yet but sometimes you have to adjust your training due to the weather, work, vacations or other reasons. In this case, I’m doing it because I know MacGyver really wants to go to the cabin and he really wants me to go with him.
If you’ve seen my post about the cabin, you know the location is not exactly the type of place you’d really want to run in, but there will be plenty of other things to do. I’m really hoping that MacGyver puts in a shower for me but since it took a year to get a toilet, I’m not holding my breath.
How’s your weather today?
Tell me about your run today…fast? slow? Short? Long? I wanna know…
