Here’s hoping that 2012 is off to a great start for everyone. It’s been a strange winter here in the greater Nashville area where I live, with mild temperatures (fine by me) and today a rare January storm system that came through producing tornadoes (not so good). Luckily, since I work from home, I was able to reassure my girlfriend’s yellow lab Clyde, who was nonplussed with the blaring from the warning siren and the barometric pressure change that he very clearly was able to recognize.
Luckily all is well here, though it was a bit troubling to be under a tornado warning and then see my neighborhood pulled up on the weather map on TV as an area where a tornado strike might be imminent. We dodged a bullet on that, but some others weren’t so lucky. The only positive: no injuries or fatalities.
