Singin' in the rain...no, cold...errr, sun...


Yesterday was some wacky weather around here. I had to do some running around, and every time I got out of the car, it was a new climatic adventure. I said climatic adventure people, get your minds out of the gutter.

This is how the trip started.

After a stop at Target (really, who can't stop at Target) the sun popped out of the clouds in all it's retina-searing glory


The sun brought with it about a 10 or 15 degree temperature change too. So, OFF went the scarf and jacket that had felt so good just an hour before. I was happily checking out a new place in Belleville called Bronx Zoo, and enjoying the pretty spring weather. The owner of the shop just mentioned that she had opened the front door and turned off the heat. In about 5 minutes, a gale force wind starts blowing. Freaky clouds are zipping by, and Kimmy decides to get the hell out of Dodge. On the 15 minute or so drive home, the temp falls by 15 degrees. I've got the little outdoor thermometer thingy built into the rear-view mirror, and believe you me, I was checking it out. We were lucky, all we really got was wind and rain out of the deal. I think Indiana and Tennessee got hammered pretty good.

Now it's just cold.

Good.

Of couse the sun shown as you exited Target. It's Mecca afterall.

The crazy looking (really, I mean it) Salvation Army bell-ringer out front told me he saw a funnel forming over the store, then it moved on past. Target may now be my new "safe place". No problem with the link. I'll put you on mine too.

You can't trust crazy bell ringers.

I'll admit it. I totally read climatic as climactic the first time around.
