I woke up at 4:00AM to the sound of a furious wind and rain. We were under a severe storm warning and there were 70 mile per hour winds. For fear of hail, I went out and moved my car further under the carport. I think the storm is moving south now into Oklahoma. I texted Leslie to see if they had any wind damage out there but I haven't heard back from them yet. I went out after I dressed and swept off the carport. There were some leaves there that blew on during the storm. We needed the rain but we sure didn't need all that wind. At least we didn't get any hail. Missy was frightened by all that storm and stayed close to me.
Because of the storm, my TV reception is spotty. It flashes on and off. Remember, what TV I have is from an antenna in the attic that Betty, my landlady, put up and we are 72 miles from our nearest station. I'm lucky to get CBS and Channel 6 out of Tulsa and that is very spotty during storms. We have some large trees just south of the apartment. They sometimes interfere with the reception. But I deal with it. It's free TV and frankly, I cannot find anything worth watching on today's TV. What they consider comedy, isn't even funny to me.
When I worked at the big AM radio station here, we had a DJ that always stayed on air as long as every storm lasted and gave updated alarms and news of the storm. We haven't had anyone to volunteer to do that since.
We may get some more storms tomorrow but Thursday is supposed to be clear and that is when Leslie and I will make our trip to Tulsa to the airport.
I have fed Missy and myself. At 8:20AM, I will pick up Bob's cake and go to Independence to deliver the cakes and make it to my hair appointment at 9:00AM.
Later..about 11:00, I will go up to Cherryvale to meet Gay for lunch. She called last night to say she understood our group meeting to be the 19th. She had confused the date. I told her I would not be back from my cruise until the 22nd. She said she was leaving on the 22nd for Colorado. So we are just going at meet at Cherryvale at 11:30 today. ...just her and me. The others of her group cannot make that date. We had intended to meet at Ane May's in Independence for lunch.
I will try to run the vacuum this afternoon. I usually do that on Thursdays. But I will be gone on Thursday.
Tomorrow I will go on to exercise class and after lunch, at 2:00PM I will go to Bingo at the senior center. Later that afternoon I will pack for my trip. Leslie and I will get up at 3:00AM on Thursday to get to the Tulsa airport by 5:00AM. My flight leaves for Denver at 6:00AM.
I went out to the Independence Walmart before I left for Cherryvale.
Well, I met Gay at Cherryvale but we found another restaurant to try instead of Pizza Hut. It was pretty good! We had a nice visit and she bought my lunch again. I owe her! She has bought my lunch several times.
When I got home, I took Missy out for awhile. She was pretty good too. While I was out there, Maureen came down to visit for awhile. Missy is in on my bed now....sleeping.
It's 5:00PM and I have not done anything that I intended to do. I didn't run the sweeper after all.
Maybe I can get it done tomorrow before I pack.
I have read the Reporter and done the crossword puzzle. Now I will take that paper over to Marilyn's.
I have had one of my Gold N' Nugit ice cream bars from Schwans with tea for my supper. I had a large lunch. The ice cream bar is not too nourishing but very good!
At 7:00, I will take my bath, as usual, and get ready for bed. Then we will watch something on Amazon Prime. I won't go to bed until 9:00 though.
