My last snow day was approximately 2,400 days (almost 7 years) ago when I lived in New Jersey. Safe to say it’s been a while since an impending storm has sparked any possibilities of a school/class cancellation for me. Toward the end of last week the
genius weathermen started warning Floridians of Tropical Storm Erika. A hurricane hasn’t hit Florida in 10 years so not only did I not know what to expect, most residents here are rusty on their hurricane preparations. For about 48 hours straight the news was a constant reel of “tips for preparing for a hurricane” and “how to stay safe in a storm.” The Type-A planner in me was kind of freaked out so I bought and did everything the news suggested…
Canned food, flashlights, batteries, a full tank of gas, candles, cash and water bottles galore.
I went to bed expecting to wake up to no power but other than the craziest and loudest thunder I have ever heard in my life, Erika was non-existent.
This is what campus looked like yesterday….no evidence of any storm.
Erika did do a lot of damage in the Caribbean and showed how dangerous these natural disasters can be. I’m very thankful there wasn’t any damage or flooding but man was I hoping for a Hurricane Day yesterday.
No Erika meant I time for some weekend activities, all of which required power (I’m so dependent). Side note: how much must it suck to share a name with a storm?
Sunday morning yoga after church. Love this quote.
Getting lost in the black hole that is Target. Only left with two things (!!).
FaceTiming with my family. This is my dog playing with his “blog” toy. My mom said he was thinking of me (“awww…”).
A little cooking and meal prep that made last night’s dinner very easy.
And, of course, the weekend ended by watching future president Kanye West announce his run for office. I literally laughed out loud when I heard him say that.
How was your weekend?
When was your last weather-related class/work cancellation?
