It’s late Friday evening. Like many of you, I am keeping an eye on the weather. There’s a fairly significant storm system heading our way. And we wait.
Over the last several weeks, there have been several notable weather events across our country. Right now, there are strong storms and tornadoes moving across the southeast. There has been disastrous flooding in California and Arizona. It seems like it wasn’t that long ago that they were talking drought.
It just got me thinking about how fragile we all are. How something like a thunderstorm, with its torrential rain and staggering winds, can turn our lives upside down.
The lightning can be beautiful. The rain can be welcome. The cadence of the rain can even be soothing.
Yet, the weather can take us in its fist and leave us stunned.
Not too much point to this tonight except to let you know that I’m thinking of you all as the storms roll across our state. I hope that by the time you are reading this, you and your loved ones are well rested and safe...
…and that you know just how precious you all are to me.
