It's Tornado Season

Well, sitting here watching the news as thunderstorms are coming into the area. I tried to take a nap this afternoon and woke up to a weather alert with two tornado warnings. Nothing that was really going to hit us and none that were visibly noted (radar indicated rotation). But it's that time of year again. Last year was a pretty mild season. (Wait... let me knock on some wood) Actually there was one intense night here, but fortunately I was in Ohio at the time so I didn't get the chance to freak out too much.
I wish I had a house with a basement. Yes, I'm a bit of a wimp when it comes to the weather. It's kind of weird because I'm fascinated by tornadoes. I watch shows about them. I also have dreams about them. The dreams are kind of strange and when I have them something is usually amiss in my life. I don't know that I give a lot of stock to dream predictions, but this one is always right.
Call me weird.... (o.k. if you've been reading my blog you probably already think I am weird) but when we have severe weather with potential tornadoes in the area I tend to clean the house. I guess I figure if a tornado is going to come and wipe everything away, it will at least be clean when it does. I know. It doesn't make sense to me either. I guess I just feel better doing something rather than sitting around watching the weather on the t.v. and hearing it pound outside.

Me too! I dream about them all the time. It usually indicates for me that life is out of control, I have no control, or generally a total mess. So what else is new?
