Too Darn Old

You’ve got to love a good old fashioned Midwest winter snow storm. Things began with a call for 3 to 5 inches and we ended up with at least 10. All that pretty white stuff had to be removed from our driveway and do you think my teenage sons did the deed? I would laugh but it would hurt too much… Of course I ended up clearing away the majority which has left me feeling every second of my 50+ years. Thankfully I have a wrist rest or I don’t think I could type this. At any rate, I’ve spent the majority of yesterday and today simply recovering.

Short story long…. I am just too damn old for this.

Hurricane Irma forecast to strike Florida Keys as Category 5: Nowhere ‘will be safe’ – ABC News

Hurricane Irma forecast to strike Florida Keys as Category 5: Nowhere ‘will be safe’ – ABC News:

“Hurricane Irma is now forecast to hit the Florida Keys as a Category 5 storm.

Meteorologists expect Irma to make landfall in the Keys between 5 a.m. and 7 a.m. ET on Sunday. Overnight projections of Irma’s path showed less of a threat to the Carolinas as the monster storm appeared likely to move directly up the middle of Florida and curve inland.”
