Meh! I’m worn out (like my shoes).
My feelings are amplified by the fact I gave up on chasing during this long weekend, but a MOD RISK has been issued. Had I followed my plan (on Friday) to travel west, go see Mt. Rushmore, then hope for storms, I could have been within reach of the expected storms:
OVERALL SEVERE STORM RISK
Man, I need an attitude adjustment and fast!
And seeing the results of today’s storm isn’t making this easier:
I am still trying to process the emotions of the day.
One person in the group has become so selfish, loud, vulgar, and arrogant that I have had waking fantasies of dragging him behind the van as we race into a hailstorm on a gravel road.
Another lost his wallet (and I feel terrible for him, especially because he is a talented and wonderful person).
I even feel a little down because my netbook is dead, one of my shoes is held together with duct tape.
And we did not see any severe storms, I feel disappointed that after tomorrow the tour is done. I fear having nothing to show for the money I spent.
