WEATHER ALERTS AND LONG NECKS
(blogathon 2003)
Well, the stormy weather has largely passed. That's life in my part of Florida--the vicious lightning storms roll in quickly, then roll out just as quickly. It was pretty bad for the 30-45 minutes it lasted, though. It felt like the lightning was right on top of us here; a couple of bolts shook the whole building, so I know they had to be damn close. In fact, the power did go off for about a second. Luckily, I had restored battery power on my notebook before the heavy stuff started moving in. No disruption!

Even now, I can hear really distant thunderclaps. Sure hope there are no giraffes out there.
