Since we are 12 days away from moving, you would think I would start to look longingly at familiar places and things, but then our weather happens and I think “WHAT THE HAIL WI?” Mother Nature seems to be VERY upset we are leaving WI, but little does she know how HAPPY we are to be heading out soon.
I don’t know WHAT is up with WI weather lately, but we are truly sick of it. We had a total of 92 inches of snow this past Winter- a record in WI. We then got our last snow storm during the third week of APRIL. Now having lived through yet another system of tornadic storms, I am SOOOOO over this state I can’t even tell you.
I know, I know… you don’t have to tell me twice that Florida has hurricanes. Here is the difference, they give you plenty of time to prepare for a pending hurricane- unlike WI where we have the siren go off minutes before a tornado hits. I will say I will miss having a basement in Florida just because it made the kids feel safe during the storms, but I won’t miss it because it was space to store junk I didn’t need.
You also don’t have to tell me it’s going to be hot in FL… I know. Trust me, I know. Having been to FL 12 times for vacations, over 9 out of 12 months of the year, I have been in the brutal heat and humidity already. Granted, living it day in and out will take some getting used to- but it WON’T be snow, and that’s fine with me! Heat I will take when I hear our temps are to drop to 37 DEGREES this coming Tuesday morning- yes, beautiful, ice cold WI in MAY.
Our gorgeous days seem to be getting fewer and far between… it is indeed time to move on. So thank you God for no hail damage to our vehicles that had to stay outside today, and thank you to Mother Nature for making us feel better about leaving WI. I hope all of our loved ones in WI stayed safe through the storms today.
