For those who saw national news of our weather calamaties here in Central Florida let me assure you I am fine. The storms and tornados blew through these parts between 430 and 630 this morning. I was up, in my running duds, watching internet weather and figuring I could get three miles in before work when the band of rain passed through.
Little did I know the severity of the storms. What? 14 deaths? I was oblivious. The mobile home parks caught the worst of it (as always). I think its a fact of nature that mobile homes are automatic targets for bad weather.
Because the media was riled up and thinking we might close schools, I had to skip the run when the phone started ringing at 550. By 645 it was a non-event in our county. Four neighboring counties were declared states of emergency. Lucky us.
Lucky me. I got my three miler in at 7pm and it sure felt good after a high stress week.
Don't forget to remind me to buy some bloks tomorrow.
