Happy Sunday and Happy Memorial Day weekend everyone! While you’re out celebrating with your family and friends, perhaps having a burger and a beer, raise your glass and toast the men and women that serve(d) and protect(ed) this great nation of ours! It’s because of their sacrifices, their selflessness that we have the freedom to enjoy this holiday as we desire.
I’m about ready to build an ark!
So wow guys, Pittsburgh is going CRAZY right now weather-wise! We talked about going away for a 3-day stint to celebrate my birthday and just to get away but when we saw that the weather was going to be pretty bad, we opted to stay home. Yesterday I went down to the Strip district in Pittsburgh as I needed bulk supplies – 50 pounds of flour, my special pizza cheeses, new pizza screens, etc. Let me back up a day or two. I got a recall on my new car saying some ac controller thing was putting gas into the oil and it had to be fixed. They fixed it annnnnnnnnnnnnnd then my AC died in my new car. Yeah… great timing, huh? I have an appointment to drop it off tomorrow night but still, I had a car when it was crazy humid and no AC. #lifesucked
Now, fast forward to my driving downtown. APPARENTLY there was some big bicycle outing in town where most of the roads were blocked off for these bikers. While I would have loved it any other day, this was not one of those days. It was 87 F with 85% humidity annnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnd I have leather interior. So down the windows went all 1972-like and I was stuck in traffic with what seemed like for hours (like 15 minutes but I was hot! </end whine>
I get my stuff, get home and go to take a shower as I’m literally all sticky from the car when I see Mr. Fantabulous outside, on a ladder trying to trim the tops of hedges while performing a balancing act. So I skipped the shower, changed clothes and went out to help him.. in the million percent humidity. While helping him we both ate like a million gnats, I got hit with a ton of sticks and refuse to acknowledge all the creepy bugs that touched me (I’d rather forget that part). We get inside, shower, eat and decide to head back out to pick up all the stuff…
…and THEN the storms came. Our phones are going off telling us to seek shelter, a tornado watch was in my area – specifically Orchard Hills (where’s there’s like maybe 50 houses). It was like the gates of heaven opened up and broke the dam. OMG the water was INSANE. Lighting, thunder and then it got calm. Like eerie calm. The skies got all yellow-ish and sirens were going on. I’m thinking “Great, this is how it ends! We just spent 9 years of blood, sweat and tears on perfecting this house for sale and it’s going to destroyed in a wink of an eye.
HOWEVER… it just stopped. Like as quickly as the monsoon hit, the tornado warnings flashing it was all gone. The skyline was a gorgeous pink/yellow/purple. Birds were chirping and it was…peaceful.
Time is running out on this Ultimate ButcherBox BBQ Bundle!
