Wild Weather in SoCal!

 

High winds today, at least 22 mph. Gusts are expected to be about 35-50 mph. The wind was so much noisier than what you can hear on the video. At least it’s not raining as hard (yet) as had been expected. Be careful driving out there, though! Watch for debris, falling power lines and trees on the road. I’ve already had a 3-hour power outage mid-morning, apparently due to equipment failure. Don’t believe it was weather-related, but who knows?

Hey, Orange County has just been issued a severe thunderstorm alert! ๐Ÿ˜ณ

An Odd Red-Letter Day

Today has been interesting so far. First, I had a power outage that lasted three hours. Couldn’t do anything! Couldn’t make coffee… the gas stove wouldn’t work so couldn’t heat water for tea… Cell was almost dead, then it died. Couldn’t access internet on my iPad, which meant I was cut off entirely from the world. Couldn’t open the garage door, so couldn’t drive anywhere.

No real rain yet, but lots of high winds. Probably good for everyone to stay off the roads if you can.

So what’s all this about a red-letter day, you ask? Well, I’ll tell you.

Now that the power is back on, I’m happily celebrating my six-week aprรฉs-surgery. No more sling! ๐ŸŽ‰๐ŸŽ‰ So in honor of that, I’m kicking back drinking espresso-ground coffee with half n’ half and a dash of cinnamon. โ˜•๏ธโ˜•๏ธโ˜•๏ธ

I feel like doing something really fun though. Hmmm… what if I order an overpriced, fattening, artery-clogging pizza to be delivered? I wouldn’t have to brave driving in inclement weather, yet some poor guy would have to slog through flooded streets to bring me a hot pizza. Would eating pizza be satisfying though? Would it feel decadent enough? ๐Ÿ˜œ

Probably not.

Hey, in the middle of writing this short post, the rain finally started coming down pretty hard. Should I run around outside in the rain to celebrate-?? Nah, I’d just end up wet. And cold.

I’d really like to have ice cream delivered to the house. And chocolate. Pie? Should I have apple pie delivered too?

Wow. What lofty goals I have. Junk food. ๐Ÿ˜–

OK then. I choose… Champagne ๐Ÿฅ‚๐Ÿฅ‚, chocolate๐Ÿซ๐Ÿซ, and strawberries ๐Ÿ“๐Ÿ“๐Ÿ“ to be delivered to the house. Far more elegant, decadent, and satisfying. ๐Ÿฅ‚๐Ÿซ๐Ÿ“And flowers ๐Ÿ’๐Ÿ’ to brighten a gloomy day.

In the meantime, I guess I’ll go back to sipping my coffee. โ˜•๏ธโ˜•๏ธ Wish it was in front of this fireplace though. Now that would make it much better. ๐Ÿ˜Š
