I am a weather kinda girl.
I check weather.com every morning to know how to dress my children for the day.
I know all the weather personalities on the weather channel.
I refer to them by their first name.
Jim. Mike. Stephanie. Dr. Steve.
And I may or may not consider them part of my family.
So imagine my surprise when huge clouds arrived yesterday bringing an onslaught of rain.
I had no clue.
How did I not know this?
Has my head been in the books so much lately that I didn't even know I needed to prepare for the imminent arrival of Ida ?
Apparently so, because I just caught up on all-things-weather and we are under a flood advisory, high wind advisory, and are expected to get 8 inches of rain by Friday night.
Excuse me while I go stock up on non-perishables and bottled water.
And gas up the boat.
