ADHD in Virginia
I'm starting to think that Virginia must have ADHD. Specifically, the weather.
About 2 weeks ago I woke up one morning to a gloomy day. It was raining and chilly. I opened the door to let the dog in and saw the rain. As I was wiping the mud off of her, JM walked in the room and said, "Wow, a blizzard!". I glanced up and the snow was pouring down in huge snowflakes and the ground was starting to get covered. Seriously in a matter of less than 2 minutes! Remember, this is Virginia. It can snow for hours before the ground is covered. The snow was coming down so hard and blowing around so much that I finally understood how people could actually get lost in blizzards. Plus the snow has an odd texture. It looked like styrophome. So I took a picture.
5 minutes later I took another picture. The car and ground were covered in snow.
It snowed hard for about 10 minutes.
Then it started to rain. I took a picture.
Then the sun came out. I took a picture.
The temp went up to about 60 degrees. The snow melted. The car and ground dried and it was as if nothing ever happened.
All this happened in a period of less than 20 minutes.
HHmmmm.... is it possible for weather to have ADHD?
We'll talk about this a little bit more on my next post.MyADHDMe" border="0">
