I have been visiting in Phoenix for 2 weeks.  Everyday I have checked out The Weather Channel to see what it is doing back home because let's face's a heck of a lot more fun to be sitting in a tropical enchanted land if you know your people are suffering the weather conditions back home.  

It's been pretty boring here weatherwise.  Everyday is about 85 degrees and every night is about 60 degrees.  Everyday is sunny, and the most exciting weather observation here is, "Wow, look, there's a cloud!"  Or this classic:  "The wind is blowing!  No, wait, it stopped."

Now, I am definitely not complaining about this boring weather conversation.  Back home there is either an impending tornado, flood, or ice storm, and if they could predict earthquakes, there is one of those waiting to shake, rattle, and roll at any moment, as well.  

Imagine my glee when I have seen, for the past 12 days, this on the weather radar of Southern Indiana:  Green.  Lots of green.  And not only that, I failed to disable my Thundercall option on my cell phone before flying the friendly skies to the West, so in the middle of the night I received a call warning me of flooding in my neighborhood.  HAHA!  Let me run to my bedroom window here in Arizona and see what it's doing at 3:00 a.m...oh, isn't this a surprise?  NOTHING!  The cool air is filtering through my window and the only thing going on I can tell is that a canopy of stars is apparently keeping the rain off me.

But then imagine my disappointment when I realized that karma is a bitch, and this Saturday, I have to go back there in that cold, soggy, foggy, miserably cloudy weather.  I had the foresight to put a coat in the car, so when I am picked up at the airport, I can at least make it to the car without breaking a tooth from the chattering caused by chills!  

Yes, I can hardly wait to get home!
