A wet and wild wind and rain storm arrived this morning also. I am fairly confident that by morning there will be no leaves left on any tree.
The storm knocked out power to over half the town. Watching traffic is amazing during a power outage. People manage to competently navigate through 4-way stops all the time, every day. But knock out the traffic lights at an intersection and nobody knows what the heck to do. Jiminy Crickets people.....it's still a 4-way stop!! It was like chaos out there.
That covers the wet and wild - Now for the Whoops! I still can't believe I did this. Talk about Foot-in-Mouth
I stopped into a corner store this morning and saw one of the clerks and then I said it........"Oh, you lightened up your hair" .........she got a funny look on her face and said - "No I didn't. I just haven't colored it lately". Oh Dear Lord......I wished the floor would open up and swallow me. Now, how exactly do you recover from something like that? Should I have said "well, grey becomes you?". This has happened to me before when I was a week or so behind on my color so I know how awkward it is. I think I'm going to have to go to a new store for a few weeks (until she forgets)
I saved the best for last. The Wow.......
The phone bill arrived today. I don't want to talk about it! :(
