Cloudy With a Chance of…

13 Aug

If you were in my town today, You’d think that Simon Bar Sinister had finally put his dreaded weather machine back together and had discovered that Underdog was in town!

I have lived in Ocean County, NJ for years and our weather has always been rainy or sunny or wind off the ocean or wind from the west, maybe a little hot or maybe a little cold…but lately it’s been hurricanes and earthquakes and tropical storms and hail and high water!

And  today at 10Am it was as black as night outside and we have been under a tornado warning for the past 45 minutes…a tornado warning! At the beach!

We have run afoul of Mother Nature and there is no denying it…whether (or weather) all you climate change deniers out there want to believe it or not…it’s happening.

And for the rest of this day I would not at all be surprised if meatballs fall out of the sky and land on my plate of spaghetti…and I’m not even taking the spaghetti outside!

If you need me today, I’ll be down in the basement and under the work bench with the cats. From now on I’m taking all of my global warming cues from them.

    Good luck! Keep safe! You’re right–this is NOT the ‘Jersey I grew up in, either!

    Stay safe. We’re typically dry during August, but instead we’ve had thunderstorms rumbling through every couple of days. Strange indeed.

    Cats always know best about the weather.

    I could really relate to this. Usually, I don’t hawk my goods so shamelessly, but I thought perhaps you might be interested to read my posts on our weather:

    I enjoy your blog!

    Here, we are dry dry dry. That’s not unusual in August, but it is unusual that it’s been so dry since the second week in January. No tornadoes though, just parched.

    The animals always seem to know what’s best for us.

    here in the NC mountains, our weather has been terrible too-rain and more rain, a flood that devistated our little valley-everyone suffered water damage, it seems. Weather is so unpredictable, and we can’t do a thing about it. Nice article. beebeesworld
