Well yesterday was an interesting day to say the least.
I ended up at the mall only to realize that the H&M is not scheduled to open until Summer of 2011 and apparently it's not summer yet...so yea, was feeling pretty dumb. I did end up finding a pretty cute swim suit at forever21 though. It's the black, floral print with underwire one that you see below.
After I finished up at the mall, I decided to get my grocery shopping done and out of the way and ended up finding another swim suit at walmart of all places. So yea, mission more or less accomplished!
It had been extremely humid & hot all day yesterday and we were supposed to have bad weather nearly all day...but we didn't. That all changed in the evening. It started out with storms in the west, headed directly our direction. I called my family to check up on them when it started to rain and hail violently where we live. My boyfriend and I live in a third floor apartment home, so we were a little concerned. When the hail reached about baseball size, the sky had that trademark, greenish hue, the sirens had been sounding for about 30 minutes and we could not hear the television over the sound of the wind and hail...we ran downstairs through the hail, hoping that one of our neighbors would let us in. Thankfully they did and we hung out there for about an hour and a half listening to the weather radio.
I have no idea how many tornadoes that there were in the area last night, or how many of those actually touched down. What I do know is that at one point there was one directly north of us and one directly south of us, both less than 5 miles away. The whole time I kept thinking about what has happened all across the country, most recently in Missouri. Needless to say, I was pretty shook up. I am getting a little fed up with the storms this year. I have lived in this area for nearly 20 years and this is definitely not normal. Everything is okay today. My car is dinged up, but who cares. I am just extremely thankful that everyone I know is safe and that last night didn't turn into a repeat of Missouri, Alabama, Oklahoma, etc.
