Joplin, Missouri was wiped out a few days ago- just horrible. Then today around eleven a.m., here in KC we found ourselves under a tornado warning.
I however was out picking up lunch when this warning went into affect. Also, was listening to my music too loudly (naturally) so didn’t hear the sirens until i got home. In short, i couldn’t get through to anyone at work on the phone & wasn’t sure what the hell was going on, nevermind the fact that it was crazy outside. Dilemma for sure- i had left my computer + hard drives at work, so was freaking out of course. So i grabbed Romeo the turtle & drove back to work, making it just about 2 minutes before our V.P. here made everyone take shelter. Luckily we did not get hit by a tornado. I was surprised by this of course, as i just bought a house & have definitely had the bad luck wind at my back as of late.
Above is a picture i took after the scare was over. I was literally drenched from the insane rain & just miserable (as if that isn’t obvious.) Not pictured here of course is Romeo, hanging out in the empty Corona Light box on the ground next to me, pissed off & just being a general punk. Damn bipolar midwestern weather.
From the backstabbing co-worker to the meddling sister-in-law, you are in charge of how you react to the people and events in your life. You can either give negativity power over your life or you can choose happiness instead. Take control and choose to focus on what is important in your life. Those who cannot live fully often become destroyers of life. — Anaïs Nin
