Scary weather..

I realize that a lot of news lately has been about the weather. I also realize that I haven't been talking about it. At all. That's because I'm scared of it. 

Have you ever read a scary book and put it down when you got scared or watched a scary movie and hid your eyes during the scariest parts? That's kind of how I feel about all these weather related disasters/natural disasters lately. And by lately I mean over the last few years.

I guess my weather fears started several years ago when I lived in Oklahoma and had to deal with tornadoes. And then ice storms. They weren't fun at all. Thinking about those times makes my mind wander to Hurricane Katrina and then Ike (which we rode out in a mobile home). 

Now there are earthquakes that are wiping out countries and spawning tsunamis. If that doesn't scare you then something is wrong. Or maybe something is just wrong with me. I'm scared half to death.

So if you've been wondering why I've been avoiding the subject of Haiti or Chile, that's the reason. I'm scared. 

My prayers go out to all the people affected by the recent disasters and I'm so sorry for them and wish I could help in some way. I really do. 

This is probably the most I'm going to say about these things got it....I'm scared. Stay safe everyone. I'm going to look at the snow some more. Since it decided to snow here yesterday. Here in Georgia. Because the weather is whacked everywhere. Have I mentioned? Scary.

Earthquakes and tornadoes and blizzards and lightning and ...

I tend to think of them as the E-ticket of life. You can't experience it all without going through some of them.

I can remember living in LA when there were a lot of temblors all the time. It got so that I'd reach up and steady the lamp on the headboard and then go back to sleep - even when the shake pitched all the books out of the bookcases. Proof positive that human beings can adapt to anything.

It's just because a few have happened close together, Kathy, recently. Don't worry they are called "natural" disasters. Nothing unusual about them. :)
