Here There and Everywhere

Slow Moving Severe Weather

The last of my Doha friends left yesterday, not without moments of hilarity. We had a great time together, and all my concerns about visiting Pensacola in the coldest month of the year were for naught. The weather, every single day, was in the 70’s, and one of the days it almost hit 80. One friend was flying straight into severe weather, and I wonder how it affected her day – if she even got home.

We had one lovely evening when our son and his wife and little happy toddler came over, laughing and talking, and our sweet daughter in law introduced all my friends to a Pensacola specialty, Sin in a Tin. Our last stop on their last day was the market where they could stock up on it to take back with them!

I am keeping my own eye on this ‘slow moving weather front’ because it is headed our way. If you’ve seen the devastation in Dallas, you’ll know – hurricane level destruction, 90 mph winds – high winds and lots of rain, and flooding.

When I checked Weather Underground this morning, this is what it looks like heading towards Pensacola:

Scary looking, hmmm?

  1. Stay dry and safe…there was quite a bit of wind damage here, but most judged it to be worth the inches of much needed rain!

  2. I’m glad you made it safely home, Grammy, and that you suffered no damage. 🙂
