now I believe it

I thought our handy-dandy weather forecaster fx had to be out of whack this morning when I saw this same symbol on the screen at 8:00 am predicting "Strong PM t-storms." The beautiful, blue, not-a-cloud-in-the-sky could not turn to storms--so I thought.


Now I believe it. After a quick run into wal-mart to print some photos and grab a few goods I believed it. I stood at the exit to wal-mart trying to see my car through the sheets of rain, parked only 10 stalls back. I ran as fast as I could and only had to stop once to pick up the canned tomatoes that broke through my bag.

I was SOAKED.


We are talking jumped-into-the-pool-with-clothes-on soaked (which I almost did 3 hours ago after work because it was so beautiful out...in my bathing suit though...). Now here I am--a true believer in my trusty weather forecaster fx.

katie,I have a chopper that I use...or you can stick it in a blender...you just want to get it pretty thin/mushy. And I just used vegetable oil. (its the same thing I think...and even if it isn't it was still really good! haha)

I made that mistake when we first moved to the south. And just the other day my weather radio alarm went off for a Tornado Warning. I looked out at the blue sky and laughed . . . until about 5 minutes later!
