A Letter... and Some Thoughtful Bloggers
Dear Mother Nature,
Last year we did not have a single thunderstorm, but this year you have decided that we are going to have one at least every week, sometimes for days in a row. Now, I am not one to go against nature, I think that thunderstorms are cool like everyone else, but the summer is waning and soon the snow will be flying. In order to survive 6 months of blasted cold weather, we need to have something known as a summer. What does a summer entail? You seem to think days and days of rain, as it rained most of May and June, we had some passable weather in July, and now we are back to rain. If you insist on raining and having thunderstorms, can you please pay a visit to the power station and find out why out of an entire TOWN, the exact same streets have lost power for hours during the last few storms. This includes my house, it means sitting in the dark even after the very cool storm has passed. (And, I will most heartily agree that last nights storm was very impressive.) It would be nice if the nice power people did their jobs during the 'looking like it is going to rain' periods and figured out why we keep losing power. They seem to need some help, nothing dangerous, just impressive would be most appreciated.
Someone Who Misses When Summer Had Sun
On that note, Stephanie awarded me a "Thoughtful Blogger" Award and I have been lax in awarding it. Since I keep saying if I read your blog, there is obviously a reason for it, I am going to try and award people that have not been awarded yet.
Melrose Plant from A Fair Substitute for Heaven
Booklogged from A Reader's Journal
Clare from Confessions of a Book Addict
Deanna from My Tragic Right Hip
Zeek from The Way I See It
There we are, blogs that I have not seen nominated elsewhere.
