Storms Are A'Brewin'

June 12th, 2013 at 03:48 pm

We live in the Midwest and they are calling for strong storms this afternoon and evening. I certainly hope we do not receive them. The weather said it is likely 1 in 5 people will sustain damage. Those are not good odds.

We have been enjoying herbs, lettuce, and radishes from DH's garden. The rabbit ate most of the lettuce, but apparently the stinky stuff worked and the rabbit or rabbits decided to move on. Not only is that a good thing,the news had that some rabbits are carrying a disease harmful to both cats and humans. So, better to have no rabbits eating or spreading disease.

I think DH is really on board with eating at home as much as possible. He asked me Monday night what I planned on fixing for supper so he could determine what he would eat for lunch. Last night we had leftover turkey and I used it to make a stuffing casserole with creamed corn. Tonight we are having spaghetti made with the leftover sloppy chicks stuff we had Sunday night and for lunch. I love eating well and reasonably!

    Here in MN the skies are very dark and it's been raining since this morning. Looks like that's the worst we'll get, judging from the weather map I just checked. Be safe! Do you have emergency plans in mind in case it gets bad where you are?

    Stay safe!

    We are having a lentils kind of week. Crockpot lentils... Rice and beans, but much more interesting than it sounds (2 Indian crockpot recipes this week).

    Someone told me the other day my house made her hungry. IT was nice to hear the input that our house smells good with all the cooking we do. (She specifically said the way our house smells makes her hungry; that it smelled very good).

    Stay safe! We are on the far western edge of where the storms are to pop up. I think it will be just strong wind, hopefully no hail or tornadoes. And I'm hoping it isn't when I need to pick up my daughter from 'camp' which is about 40 minutes round trip.

    Get some stews going in the cooker and some candles in. That way when the inevitable happens and the power lines all fall down you can still eat as you shiver together by candlelight for a few days of family fun.

    Seriously though, global warming does appear to have failed across the US and Europe this year, so just keep paying your taxes and smile because it wont be long before the new ice age taxes are implemented! Above all else, don't panic.

    Ant - Do it once, do it right!

    We just got a warning from campus security that the storm will hit in an hour or so. It's sunny now! Supposedly there will be a break at 4 and then there will be more storms. I'm a little worried because I'll be on the train and walking during some of that time.

  7. creditcardfree Says:

    @CB, do you have other options or places to duck into if the storm pops up on your walk?

  8. CB in the City Says:

    CCF, of course the storm is long past now, and I made it home when the rain was just starting. But yes, I do have the option of stopping at a restaurant that is near the station -- if it ever looks really bad, I'll just stop there and have a sandwich!

    CB you had it far worse than we did. We didn't have any storms and felt incredibly blessed. We drove to Chicago yesterday and saw all the water sitting where water normally isn't. Glad you made it home safely.
