My, my, my, what a night, what a day!
My morning started at 3:30 a.m. with tornado sirens blaring. After checking local TV broadcasts and ascertaining that the neighborhood wasn’t in immediate peril, I fumbled around and found some clothes to put on in case I had to do an interview describing what the tornado sounded like as it ripped the roof off the house. (I guess that’s why they tell you to get dressed and put on shoes.)
The storms and sirens continued until late morning. That’s when I thought about sneaking over to the gym, but to be honest, I was so exhausted from lack of sleep, that I opted for a 2-hour nap. I do feel refreshed and hardly even flinched when the sirens started screeching again. I might dash over to the gym for an all-cardio day tomorrow, if the weather allows. For tonight, I’m thinking about doing this equipment-free workout, if I can figure out which of my newly-painted walls I wish to use. Or maybe I’ll just think about it and not work out today. It wouldn’t be the end of the world.
Right now, we’ve got a bit of blue sky showing, but no one’s excited. We’ve had 13 inches of rain within the past 24 hours and more on the way. Bad news: I currently have waterfront property. Good news: I’m not living on the water. Or under it, in a not-living state. The lawn is drenched, but the inside of my house is dry. Some people aren’t nearly as fortunate.
So if you’re looking for me, I’ll just be sitting here counting my blessings.

Wherever you are, I hope you are safe (and dry!) this weekend.
Oh, and re: blog migration, there are still some little issues to work out (sorry, IE folks!), but they’ll eventually be resolved. Thanks for your patience!
