Everybody had been talking about rain the last two days. I didn’t pay much attention to them because I HAD SEEN IT RAIN BEFORE. It was strange, here it was Sunday and nobody was out on the lake in their boat, cruising along. I mentioned that to the Hubby and he looked at me as though I was from another planet. Woman don’t you know there is a storm coming. Well, it was nice and warm; the wind wasn’t even blowing very much. My neighbor was next door raking his yard and mowing. I mentioned to him in a serious manner, I heard it was going to rain. He looked at me kinda strange as if to say, haven’t you seen it rain before. I didn’t pursue that subject anymore. He thanked us for using our lawn mower; you see his wouldn’t start so as a good neighbor, we offered him ours. When he was finished he put the mower back in the shed and waved good bye and went back to his other home. You see most people on the lake have another home somewhere else. The Hubby says, poor things, they aren’t retired yet. You see there are a lot of great things about retirement. But I won’t go into that subject because I am on a more serious subject. RAIN!
As I was crawling in my bed this man started talking, poor Hubby was about a sleep and he raised up and said, “Who is that in our house downstairs?” I had to assure him that it was the weather machine telling us what was happening. Well, I ran down the stairs just as he told us Logan County was going to have a strong storm. Fifty mile an hour wind and for us to be calm and stay away from the windows. It just occurred to me, I didn’t have another place to go in our little cabin that did not have windows so I just jumped in the bed and covered up my head. I waited and waited NOTHING happened! I woke the Hubby up to tell him the storm had not hit. For some reason he got mad and shouted with his “mean” voice, Go to sleep Woman! It probably went around us. Just in case the lights went out, I went downstairs again and located my “big old light”. I hate being in a dark house in a rain storm.
Well, much to my surprise I went to sleep. But all of a sudden I woke to a large BOOM and a streak of lighting that lit up my room. The rain was pouring down and I didn’t know whether to cover my head or jump under the bed. The wind was blowing 90 miles an hour and there was no Hubby in the bed. I ran downstairs like a crazy person and woke him up AGAIN and asked, “Why are you down here sleeping. Of course he replied, “you know you usually sleep anywhere you can when it is dark outside”. You were snoring so loud you woke me up and I came down to my favorite chair to get away from you. Now here you are down here waking me up AGAIN. But I replied, “it’s a storm outside”. And as always, he said, SOOOOOO. It’s not like you have been talking about it all day long. It is finally here so go back to bed. I had to have the last word, well smarty it didn’t go around us like you said. That’s when the fight started.
Mother Nature not only is “off her rocker”. She fell completely out of her chair. She has no control at all anymore. We just got that water off our yard and here it is raining again. The worst part is I had finally decided to go fishing with the Hubby today. I think that was the reason he was in a bad mood when I woke him up. He knew he would not have a great day doing his most favorite thing with me. Well, till next week and the next fishing trip, its old TG telling you to as always ENJOY THE MOMEN, even if it is storming. They say, “Into every life a little rain must fall”. I don’t know who said that but I am sick and tired of being sick of rain! Happy rainbows and all that good stuff. Bye now.
