We’re Not in Kansas Anymore

I awoke this morning, not quite realizing that my alarm had been ringing and slowly growing louder. I eventually managed to turn it off and I took out my earplugs. And then I froze. There were many loud sounds and I wasn’t quite sure what they were. It registered that Jim was still sound asleep so the noises must not be that bad. It took me another minute to realize that the sounds I was hearing were due to some extremely blustery winds.

I opened the weather app on my phone and sure enough, a wind advisory had been issued for much of the day. Hello spring, well almost!

Making my way to the bathroom, I could still hear the howling winds. Once inside the bathroom, the winds sounded even more fierce. As I thought about the winds, all I could think about was whether or not we were going to blow away. Not I know we were not, but it sure sounded like we could. The swirling winds brought to mind the movie The Wizard of Oz. All I could think about was the images Dorothy saw as everything was swept up by the tornado. I don’t think we’re in Kansas anymore she lovingly tells her dog.

This sentence has been running through my head all day. I sure hope I don’t blow away!

  1. I grew up in the Texas Panhandle and those windy days are no joke. They can be nerve-wrecking when it sounds like the roof will get ripped off the house. Those Wizard of Oz memories come flooding back. Here’s to calmer spring days.
