Well, here we go again. Little old Victoria is surrounded by storms.
We went through this several days last week and over the weekend.
We just had a thunderstorm this afternoon and another is on it's way.
We are also in the tornado watch area.
Y'all know I am afraid of thunderstorms. I did quite well (for me)
during the last few big ones last Saturday. I have learned to be
prepared for the long stretches of thunder and lightning and am now
always at the ready.
This is my safe and secure zone. I used to go into the master bathroom
because it is the only room in the house without huge windows. But I
read that it is not good to be near plumbing during an electrical storm,
so I moved into the hallway between the dressing room and our
bedroom. Still some windows in the bedroom and the dressing room,
but I can huddle in the corner if things get too rough, or go into the
linen closet right behind the pillow.
So here's the set up ~
Comfy quilt to wrap up in
Battery powered candles
iPad for music to cancel out the thunder
Sleep mask if lightning is too severe
Flashlight to read by if power goes out
Fun book to read (thank you Mary Kay Andrews)
Two teddy bears (one is a tiny one for clutching)
My cell phone to keep aware of where the storm
is headed and ….
to stay in touch with my "sister" Robin who stays in
close touch with me throughout these storms.
Bless her heart. She texts me through the worst of the storm.
Love that girl friend and my adopted "sister".
But this is the phrase I cling to and the one that gives me the
most comfort during these times ….
We are supposed to be having severe weather for the next couple of days,
so I probably won't be posting. Looking forward to clear skies and
By the way ~ sometimes Bentley will sit with me and sometimes he
moves to one of the chairs in our bedroom. He is not afraid of these
storms and I don't want him to be scared either.
Big Texas Hugs,
Susan and Bentley
