Weather The Weather

Whether the weather be cold, or whether the weather be hot, we'll weather the weather whatever the weather whether we like it or not.  It's an old speech exercise.  And boy howdy Indianapolis and environs got plenty of it last Friday and Saturday.

Torrential rain hit the city and flooded areas no often if ever flooded before.

We are on a hill/incline and though it roared and rushed over the curb, we were spared that.

Didn't realize even Saturday 45,000 people were without power. as the electrician finished the new meter column and called it in.

We waited til Monday for power restoration.

There were many dramas, lives saved and communities coming together to work back to relative normal.

Fortunately there was nothing close to the devastation in Louisiana.  But weather is a fickle traveler.

Weathering storms and loss is met with much fortitude and Americans are well known to meet the test.

Weathering change is very much on our minds as my son goes off for military training.  He is venturing on a road he loves and is ready to serve as well as lead.

Next month there will be reflections on this and no doubt much more as we weather an election year like no other.

Batten down the hatches and get read to rebuild -s-!
