At least I am feeling a little more at ease at work. I know my way around a little better and am remember the names of the staff. It's a lot to absorb, but I am definitely catching on...
As for Tulsa. The town is great, it's laid out well and easy to navigate. Lots of neat little neighborhoods. Lots of green....trees and gently rolling hills. I have yet to get down to the Riverwalk, but I hear that's lovely too. But's also extremely hot! H-O-T! We were 95 today plus humid. I actually like humidity (it's great for my allergies, voice and skin...not so great for my hair, but I have learned to tackle it with a myriad of products!) but sometimes the heat here can take your breath away. Well not like it did in Bangkok, but close!
Also, they are forecasting SEVERE weather for Thursday evening. All I can assume that means, is be ready for tornados. This makes me very scared. So all I can do is be prepared. I have been sleeping in clothes that will work out in public (like sweats and t-shirts) should I need to get up and out in a hurry. I am also keeping the dog's collars on them at night (which we normally don't do) so they have their ID's and I have something to grab onto if I need to corral them into our storm shelter, which is the hall closet. I have bottled water in there, emergency radio, flashlights, important papers in a waterproof envelope, some sundries and food and our wedding photos in a plastic bin. So I guess I am prepared. Right now, I have NO baseline for how severe is severe for here. I mean, when should I really be worried? All the locals tell me not to fret too much, but yeah, I am pretty sure I will. Send me your positive vibes for Thursday night when they predict the major stuff to hit.
