Cristobal, oh Cristobal

A tropical storm named Cristobal is playing havoc with weather here in the Florida panhandle, dropping torrential rains and stirring up occasional tornadoes. We’ve had a brief respite from the storm this morning, and I’d get out and run some errands while the sun shines, but there’s a paint crew working inside the house to cover up the holes plumbers created while fixing our water leak. I feel like Roseanne, Roseanna Danna.

“If it’s not one thing, it’s another.”

This afternoon the rain is predicted to return and continue through the weekend. We’ve been in drought conditions for several months, so the rain is welcome, but I worry that mushrooms will begin growing out of my ears if the storm lasts much longer.

If we have to have a tropical storm at least this one has a musical name. Cristobal always makes me think “crystal ball” and when I picture the storm in my head I see this:

I hope the fortune teller sees an end to Cristobal in the crystal ball in the near future.

Peace, people!

  1. Here is hoping you have no hurricanes this season and that the tropical storm is not a prelude to the future. My fiance own a condo in PC Beach during Mitch, and that was not fun. Take care this summer.
