I am one of those people who absolutely LOATHES thunderstorms, so this whole Hurricane Sandy thing has me pretty freaked out. Mr. Mock is that guy who wants to be out on the deck watching lightning strikes and who thinks thunderstorms are awesome. I do not get this. They are NOT awesome. They are destructive jerks.
Far away rumbly storms are acceptable, but only if they are not coming closer to me. And soft pittery pattery rain showers are fine. But there is NOTHING, not a SINGLE REDEEMING THING, about real thunderstorms. All they do is flood things, and hail on things, and blow things around, and make power go away. I HATE THEM.
So, if you’re in Sandy’s way right now, just know that I really feel for you. But the horse dude thinks we’re all overreacting.
