Dear Mother Nature

I love you very much BUT do you think you could cut me a break?

(my camper, awning and deck after yesterday's little rainstorm)
Maybe these wind gusts up to 70 mph are just a bit impulsive and a bit too excessive?

Maybe you prefer your floral babies rooted in the earth....


.....but did you have to knock over my planter and break all my terra cotta flower pots, just to free the babies?
Maybe 1 1/2 to 2 1/2 inches of water in one downpour......
....is a wee bit too much of a good thing?
Yes, yes, I am beginning to feel like you're picking on me because I have so little time to try to pretty up the outside around here, and then you just sort of sashay through....again and again....and basically set things back to zero for me....or worse??!!

OK, OK I get it...you are very bold and beautiful. I get that!! So could you please cut me a break for awhile....pretty please?

We're sorry that the weather has been mean to you, again...

That was a totally dispicable thing that it did to your plants.

Yes, Mother nature can be very mean at times. Supposedly there is some bigger thing behind it. All I know is that it can be devastating.
Sorry she picked on you.

Mother Nature is in a very pissed off mood. Menopausal? Ha, Ha, Ha, Ha...

I take it no one was hurt? Just stuff then, little stuff at that.

OK, just trying to put a bright face on it :)

Wow that must have been some storm. That stinks that something that takes so much work can be destroyed in a matter of seconds. Hope Mother Nature give you a break now.

She does seem to have something against you! I am so sorry. I think we just got that storm, 2 inches of rain in half an hour and hail the size of grapefruit, two tornadoes. Someone needs to give Mother Nature a drink.
