The weather took an ugly turn here on the tundra today. Temperatures were 90*+ with high humidity. The perfect cooker for wild weather. Tornado watches, hail warnings, severe weather warnings, lake wind advisories, the tracker bar on the bottom of the TV screen was blazing away. I have the 2nd computer fired up on the weather radar screen for the MSP region.
There is a bright red spot in the center of the screen. Under the cross hair in the middle of the red spot is Flannery Bay.
The hail was smashing into the deck. Strong enough to break a light bulb sitting on the table.
And the hail stones were striking the lake with bomb like splashes.
I’m a guy who has somehow fallen into the shabby world. A shabby chic world of shabotaged furniture and foo foo accessories. My stuff tends to be outside of the cottage without much chic, shabby or otherwise. My things are the hogs in this world of roses. Thus the title: Hogs and Roses. (Please look at my 1st post "Why Hogs and Roses?")
I want to be Henny Youngman, when I grow up. Take my wife -- please!
I enjoyed 7 years of marital bliss (17 years of marriage). I have been divorced forever. Love my role as curmudgeon, comedian, sage and advisor.
