I'm On A Tornado Watch Tonight

I watched the anual Victoria's Secret Fashion Show tonight. No tornados there, but the fashions were great, the girls were all gorgeous, and Katy Perry (the girl who kissed a girl) was her usual adorable self, rocking out her dance tunes. It was a fun hour of TV, as the girls strutted their stuff up and down the long runway, in front of the likes of Paris Hilton, Adrian Grenier, and Debbie Harry, but there was one thing that constantly gnawed at my stomach the whole time I watched them. Those girls are sooooo skinny! The poor things! Where do they keep them between shows..........in a concentration camp? Thin is good, but emaciated is not! You could count the ribs on some of them! I wanted to take them all out to Ruby Tuesdays, for great big juicy cheeseburgers and steak fries after the show!

There is a nasty cold front pushing its way east tonight, that has left a wake of destruction in its path, and being surrounded by tall trees out here in the wilderness, it has me be a bit worried. I can tell by the sound of the wind gusts rushing through the trees tops, that the wind is already picking up out in front of the front. Temperatures east of the front have been unseasonably high, while temperature on the back side of the front are much more wintery. With the warm humid air, that comes up north from Gulf of Mexico and the southeast Atlantic coast, this is usually a recipe for disaster. Disaster in the form of strong thunderstorms, micro bursts, and tornados, caused by a collision of the two fronts. It all reminds me of a scene from an old Woody Allen Movie, where he was living in an old, poorly heated apartment. He complained that when he took a hot shower, the warm front coming from the bathroom, would meet the cold font coming from the living room, and he would have thundershowers in the hallway!

Here's Katy Perry, making us all feel like we're living a teenage dream:

I don't have detailed graphics to post so here is what I have going on.

High pressure to the north is swirling air clockwise so Siberian cold is drawn across the north sea which being relatively warmer creates much cloud, this waits till it reaches the coast and starts to fall as snow, lots of it, worst anyone can remember at this time of year.

What NOBODY can remember is thunder and lightning associated with snow in this region!

Hope you are sleeping in a strong part of the house.

Dear Melissa
You have such a kind nature, I hope nature is kind to you.
Wishing you a peaceful safe night.
Bless you

Hi Hon
Yeah, I agree with the whole 'skinny bitches' thing. It's not attractive in the least! And I am sure that they are dancing on a thin line for their health. Hopefully that will change.

Snowed a foot here last night!!

Just to help you feel more, er, "comfortable", we've only had one tree split, so far. :-)

It cracked in half about 15 feet up. The rain and wind are still a little enthusiastic, however.

About 20 miles from here, in the last storm there was one of those "straight line gusts" (I can't remember what they're called, sorry). Trees (and power lines) were down in a straight line for about 2 miles. It was quite a sight!

Oh, erm, forget I mentioned that last anecdote! :-D

Hmmm, maybe we're sending the extra cold your way. It's been in the low 30's in the am here, and high 50's in the afternoon. As of tomorrow, we're back to high 40's in the morning, and mid to high 70's in the afternoon! Yay! In any event, I hope you'll be okay. Batten down those hatches and keep us posted, will you?

I can't stand the stick-thin waifs myself. The industry has gotten a bit better lately with coming out with clothes that actually fit most women. For some reason, though, they still trot out these stick figure girls.

Oh, and I love Katy Perry. That's a good song. :)
