Yesterday was a crazy day! I had barely answered a few emails when the storm front moved in and we lost the internet for the rest of the day. Also lost power a couple of times. It rained and blew and rained and blew from then on into late last night. At times the wind was reported at 60+mph. with some damage south of us. We had gotten three inches of rain by 4pm.
Of course to complicate matters I did something stupid the day before. I forgot to count my blood pressure pills, and of course that was my last refill, so I had to make an emergency call to the clinic on Saturday morning and ask for the doctor to call in an approval. The clinic called back at noon to let me known it had been done. The pharmacy said it would be ready Sunday afternoon…no problem.
Well, of course it was a problem! We tried to time our trip so that we only got rained on and not blown away. Got there safely, only to learn that the power had been out and the computers were down and Walgreen’s was taking “cash only”. Who carries cash anymore? Left, got some cash, went back and got the prescription, and barely made it home before the next round of wind and lightning began.
On the way home I thought about all the people in the recent tornadoes who were without medication the moment their house blew away. Forget photos or jewelry…maybe when the next tornado warning comes across the screen I had better grab my pills and put them in my pocket! Scary to think of how dependent we are on pharmaceuticals!
And I was NOT out and about with the camera yesterday! Wasn’t even interested in taking photos of the puddles or the river of water winding its way through the pasture. I barely managed to go out and feed the cat! The photos are from Saturday.
Hopefully it will be calmer today. We need to break the drought cycle…but not in one day.
Have a safe day!
