Only in the Southeast can weather take you on a crazy winter rollercoaster ride. Last Thursday, my community faced three tornado warnings, high winds, and flooding as the temperature hit close to 72 degrees. Then on Friday, we lost our power for most of the day.
On Saturday morning, I woke up to fat snowflakes falling out of the sky. Of course, the warmth of the ground from the severe weather and standing water caused the snow to melt on contact. Our winter wonderland turned muddy as a steady rain returned in the afternoon.
Counties to the north of me in my state received more snow.
Today, rain is back along with the pain and fatigue of arthritis and fibro. Winter challenges loom as I try to write. The wild weather impacts my joints and moods.
I cling, however, to the happy moments like the one above of my cat watching the snowflakes fall to the ground, celebrating a special birthday, and looking forward to the warm pool tomorrow where I spend time completing water physical therapy.
I also continue to write for the Write 28 Days Challenge sponsored by Anita Ojeda. I will catch up each day a little at a time, but I am determined to write for this challenge and succeed. Thank you for your patience.
Next, lets review last week’s linkup.
