I can only hope that the skepticism of RDJ in your icon is prophetic.

Send it here, please? We haven't had rain in over a month.

I hate storms with tornado warnings. Well, not the fact that they warn you but that the awful things could happen. I spend the whole time praying we don't have to use the spider and rat infested cellar!

After the last storm here - I'll take anything that reads like that seriously.

Praying that everything will work out and that the storm will be mild if it happens at all.
