So, as a lot of you have heard, we had some rather extreme weather in our neck of the woods. I, as well as many of the other residents at my apartments, claim that we were hit by a tornado on Monday night between 10:15 and 10:30 p.m. The weather folks say there was no rotation in the clouds above us, but I've never found a windstorm that would move a full-size dumpster from from behind our apartment building over 100 yards to the other side of our street. Whatever. We had extreme weather.
There were trees toppled, many a window broken, and the usual debris you'd expect after a...whatever it was. During the course of this little weather event, I lost three windows from my car, a lot of the paint, the dryness of the carpets and upholstery, and a kitchen window. My roommates car was similarly trashed. Gabby, Nate, Jani and I are absolutely fine. We had quite the scare (Nate and I were actually standing outside of our door when it hit) and not a lot of sleep during the rest of the night, but we're fine. My car, however, is totaled. I am less than excited about this. Partially because I don't have a lot of time left on my borrowed car, and I need to get into a new car if I can't have my old one back. I don't like the idea of being in a hurry to buy a used car, and I certainly can't afford a car payment right now. Ugh. Think the sales at MedVed for the same storm that killed my car would be worth it?
Anyhow, I thought I'd update the folks who don't have Facebook (or just don't have me on theirs). I have pics posted there if anyone wants to see.
In other news:
- Gabby has been awesome! I can't believe how much she's growing up. I need to get her registered for school.
- Nate remains an amazing boyfriend. I still feel lucky. Not much new news there, so I'll stop before I start gushing.
- Had an awesome dinner at the Denver Aquarium with Nate and his family (dad, sis and family) last night. So much fun. Her Highness the Gabbers was VERY well behaved.
- Work. Ugh.
And speaking of, it's time to go back. Ciao!
