USA Today had an article on Britain's hurricane, but I knew I'd get a much more detailed report here
I hope things stayed on the lighter side as it moved through.

We get Nor'easters, hurricanes and super storms here on the East Coast, the midwest part of the country gets tornadoes, the mountains get record snowfalls and blizzards and California gets wild fires, torrential downpours, and earthquakes. Alaska gets earthquakes and has permafrost. Hawaii has an active volcano going for it. And the UK is whining about a little breeze and a few drops of rain. Geesh, come spend a season or two here.

Having lived through a many a hurricane, I will say that 99 MPH winds ain't nothin' to sneeze at. Y'all take care....hopefully the storm has passed by now. I gotta get caught up on the goings on here. I been fairly busy lately with my new job. It sure feels good to be workin' again.

Well, I was going to shoot some long guns today using iron sights, but the sun went in as soon as I had the time. It's so much easier to see the target when the sun is out. A sure sign you are getting older...
So now I'm sitting in my warm cozy house and... on goes the TV

Every time you want to do some shooting, the sun goes in. Can we blame any bad weather on you? Sounds to me like the eyes are ageing on you.

Oooh, I do like those wellies PF! Mine are plain black, and nothing to look at....well, they do have nice-ish blue bottoms, which cause a bit of an edging....

in a bit of a funk today....can't decide what to do so did nothing....walked around the house noticing messes, didn't want to pick anything up. I think I'm in the process of destroying my old life, hoping to get some inspiration for a new lease.....

in limbo.

Getting back into the swing of my Monday. I'm a little late getting at it because all morning was spent at the radiology department of the local hospital having my annual mammogram. I didn't realize this was Breast Cancer Awareness Month and the place was packed. I've always paired my mammogram with my annual physical so I can be more efficient and, since it's a bit of a drive, I'm loathe to waste gas on two trips to nearly the same place.

I had almost an hour between appointments but with the crowd I only had 10 minutes to spare when I got to my doctor's office. Had to wait there, too, but only because they are just beginning to go paperless and the electronic systems/devices were making everyone is the office crazy.

All good reports and the doctor said I check out at about 10 years younger than I really am. Yeah! Glenn will get a kick out out of that. He always calls me his "young" wife. I'm only 10 months younger but now, it seems, I'm 10 years younger!!!! WooHoo!!!

Oh it was utter carnage. Leaves and twigs everywhere!

(On an unfunny note, there were three fatalities around the country). But as "huge storms" go, it was pitiful.
