We've had so much rain in the past five days (or maybe longer, it feels like forever) that many of the roads around here have been washed out and flooded. Several people have been washed away in their cars, the rivers are at dangerous flood levels, people have been evacuated....it's been something else. Twelve inches so far and more coming this afternoon.
We've had hail three days in a row. The first day, the hail was the size of tennis balls and didn't just fall out of the sky, it SHOT down on us with unbelievable force at an angle. It felt like we were under attack! The ice balls would hit the rocks, the trash cans and the CAR and the WINDOWS and just explode like mini bombs.
I was screaming and shrieking about windows getting smashed out, so my boyfriend Jamie ran out to the car to cover up the windshield (he was too late) and got pelted with hail so big that it drew blood and made big welts on his arms. I've never seen anything like it and I'm OLD!
My yard is littered with copious amounts of leaves and branches, my flowers are shredded.....Man! Crazy sh*t! For some reason, and I don't know if it's the weather or what, but I've been super emotional. I have to wonder if it's because of the work I've started doing on my heart chakra painting. My heart chakra is so deeply wounded that opening it up is releasing floodgates of emotions, kind of like the flood gates that have opened up in the sky. I anticipated this happening but it's still intense!
It also doesn't help that I've been having horrible migraines, too. I had some serious brain and head injuries that make me susceptible to post traumatic migraines. I hate drugs, and the pills I take to get through them are brutal on my system. No headache today (thank you God!) but I look and feel like complete and utter hell.
Well, on that depressing note, maybe some sunny happy pictures are in order! Here's a few pictures of some of my flowers before the shredding..
My eyes are starting to get blurry on me (another side effect of the migraines, no it's not age darnit!), especially the eye I look through the camera with, so it's getting trickier and trickier to get things in focus. I already have to wear reading glasses to read, but they don't work with the camera viewfinder. Not quite sure what I'm going to about that little glitch.
Well I need to get some things done before the next storm and the next migraine, so have a good one! (I made one of the tags for this post "whining", gah! Sorry.....)
