it's a little foggy here today (about a mile from the eastren face of the rockies) Tray and I took a long lunch and went for a hike in the mountains. fucking awesome. Really hard to come back to work after that.
According to the SPC I'm supposed to prepare to die.

...SEVERE THUNDERSTORMS EXPECTED OVER PARTS OF THE TODAY AND
THE NWS STORM PREDICTION CENTER IN NORMAN OK IS FORECASTING THE
DEVELOPMENT OF OVER PARTS OF THE LATER TODAY AND TONIGHT.
THE AREAS MOST LIKELY TO EXPERIENCE THIS ACTIVITY INCLUDE
SURROUNDING THE MODERATE RISK AREA...THERE IS A SLIGHT RISK OF
SEVERE THUNDERSTORMS FROM PARTS OF IOWA...ILLINOIS AND WESTERN
INDIANA SOUTH AND WEST INTO PARTS OF CENTRAL AND NORTHEAST TEXAS.
AN OUTBREAK OF SEVERE THUNDERSTORMS INCLUDING THE POSSIBILITY FOR A
FEW TORNADOES AND VERY LARGE HAIL IS EXPECTED THIS AFTERNOON AND
TONIGHT OVER PARTS OF THE CNTRL AND SRN PLAINS AS A VIGOROUS JET
STREAM DISTURBANCE MOVES EAST FROM COLORADO INTO THE LOWER MISSOURI
A DEEPENING SURFACE LOW WILL MOVE EAST ALONG A NEARLY STATIONARY
FRONT ACROSS NORTHERN PARTS OF KANSAS AND MISSOURI. DAYTIME HEATING
AND THE ARRIVAL OF STRONGER UPPER LEVEL WINDS WILL LEAD TO AN
INTENSIFICATION OF THUNDERSTORMS EXPECTED TO FORM ALONG AND NEAR THE
FRONT. OTHER STORMS WILL LIKELY FORM ALONG A WIND SHIFT LINE
EXTENDING FROM EASTERN KANSAS SOUTHWARD INTO CENTRAL AND EASTERN
OKLAHOMA AND PARTS OF TEXAS.
THE COMBINATION OF THE VERY UNSTABLE AIR AND STRENGTHENING WIND
PROFILES WILL CREATE AN ENVIRONMENT FAVORABLE FOR FAST-GROWING
SUPERCELL /ROTATING/ THUNDERSTORMS WITH VERY LARGE HAIL...HIGH WIND
AND A FEW TORNADOES.
THOSE IN THE THREATENED AREA ARE URGED TO REVIEW SEVERE WEATHER
SAFETY RULES AND TO LISTEN TO RADIO...TELEVISION...AND NOAA WEATHER
RADIO FOR POSSIBLE WATCHES...WARNINGS...AND STATEMENTS LATER TODAY.
A couple hundred miles east of SP, we anticipate two-inch hail. Even bearing in mind that forecast hail is always exaggerated in size, I'm thinking maybe it's time to put the car under something large.
it's about 75 degrees f. here right now. not to shabby considering it's 9pm.
but wait .. tomorrow's supposed to hit up in the mid eighties.
does knowing I'm going to be basking in the heat tomorrow afternoon get you as worked up as it gets me? I doubt it. I knew there was a reason I liked texas. I think I'm going to buy a condo here or something.
