Not in Toano anymore Toto...

Max, Mikey, Kodie, or Dinero (the four black and white k9's in residence) either, for that matter... On Friday - after a week of 100 degree plus temperatures - a cold front plowed trough central Virginia. The first line of storms was nothing more than very high winds and a few light showers. Then came round two, heavier horizontal rains, back to back lightning strikes, winds that could move small cars in a single bound, and debris flying through the air like Dorothy's farmhouse in the Wizard of Oz... After the second batch of storms, JD called me to let me know a hail storm may be on the way and that I should move my car into his garage... I told him I really didn't think it was necessary, but told him I would. I went out and opened the driver's side door to find MILLIONS of small pieces of glass all over the interior of my poor car. It appeared a huge chunk of hardwood had been torn from it's Mother Tree somewhere overhead and been flung into the side of my car and shattered the passenger side window. Thank goodness for tempered glass... Am I dramatic? or what?

Well, the damage to the Sebring was not as bad as it could have been. The top does not appear to be injured, although the nice folks at Bruce's Body Shop in Williamsburg has not finished assessing the total damage. The best weather in weeks is about to happen, and I am off Tuesday and Wednesday stuck with a 2006 Hyundai Sonata... Not complaining, it could be worse.

I plan on telling my room mate tonight about my decision to move at the end of the month. I am not looking forward to it, but I owe it too him to let him know, as he has been so good to me over this past year.

I miss JD already, and have only been home since this morning...
That's all for now. Over and "Out" from Richmond, VA

Good Luck, thank you, and farewell.

I am so happy for you. Makes me sad that you are leaving Richmond just when I'll be relocating there in Nov, but as you say it's only 40 miles away. I'll be calling you when I get into town. Take care of yourself.
