So who is up for a slumber party? I worked Saturday and Sunday nights and you might have woke up early enough Monday to see me back on the morning show. Now keep in mind, I have to build new graphics and make sure I a new show is ready for the mornings. So overnight, instead of driving home and wasting 45 minutes each way on the commute, I just took a sleeping bag and slept in the weather center for 2.5 hours, then woke up at 2:40 AM and got ready for work. Surprisingly I was very interjected for work and the morning FLEW by! Now I would have loved to have went home and taken a nap afterwards, but instead I went to Marion Local, after a quick stop home to let Buckeye out and play with him, and talked to the fourth graders, who had been learning about weather for the last eight or nine weeks. They were hands down the smartest group of students I have ever talked with during my school visits. They knew that when a cold front comes through, the air pushes under a warm front and lifts the warm air. They also knew the difference between all the cloud types and what types of weather is associated with them. They also had very intellectual questions about the weather and I hope they all ace their weather test coming up this week. After that I went home had dinner, and needless to say slept like a baby last night.
So today is a special day for me. It is my anniversary with my girl friend, Dawn. It has been a great experience being with her and wouldn't change it for the world. We met at Ohio State and were both meteorology students. We didn't actually meet and start being friends until we were seniors, but we quickly hit it off. While we both love the Browns, we have WAY more differences than similarities. I love the Reds, she likes the Indians for some reason. I like fish, she hates it. I like rock, she likes hip-hop. I love the country, she doesn't. I love to run, she doesn't. I love the outdoors, and camping, she would NEVER be found in a tent. While this is only the bare tip, I mean like molecule of the iceberg of our differences, we do have a few similarities, such as our mutual dislike for fake banana flavor. Anything that even tastes like banana is thrown away unless it contains 100% real bananas We also both like the weather, other than that hmmm, well I would have to think about other similarities. But I still love her and wouldn't trade anything for her.
So today is our anniversary, and I got her a few dozen roses and a card and a massage. She got me a weather station. Now I know some of you are thinking WHAT?!?! Well I had mentioned getting one, but never got around to it just because I haven't had the money to get it, but she really blew me out of the water and surprised me with the greatest gift I have ever gotten. I have been planning on how and where I am going to mount it in the coming days. Very excited.
59 days left!!
