Monday Madness (a day late)

1. Where you live, what kind of weather (or weather-related tragedy) do you fear the most?

Tornadoes. What is it that "Preacher" calls them in Twister? "The finger of God." A well-built enough house not in a flood area or on the shore can survive a hurricane; ours did. You may lose power and some shingles, but it doesn't come suck you up.

2. What kind of weather do you MOST enjoy?

I call it "jacket weather." If it's about 55°F with a breeze, so I can wear sweats and my fleece jacket and maybe my hat...that's nice. Oh, yeah, and partly cloudy.

3. What kind of weather do you LEAST like to drive in?

A rain so hard that you can't see even when the wipers are at top speed. Or as I refer to it, "Georgia Monsoon Season."

4. What is the scariest weather-related experience you've had in your lifetime?

I drove ten and a half miles home from work during the height of the Blizzard of 78. It took two and a half hours and most of the other cars on the road at that time got stuck and were abandoned for the National Guard to dig them out a week later.

5. Share a "weather picture" with us!

Don't have any of my own right now, but check out Elaine's blog. She always has lovely photos. Like this!
