Farewell, Summer.

Are we sure Summer didn’t just start?! I’ve been working on clearing photos off my phone (it took me nearly 2 1/2 years, but I finally filled up my phone’s memory enough that it stopped working)… here are a few¬†from my last Summer in Cheyenne: Sunbathing and lazy-bum pups galore: The view of Cheyenne from a long run: A random funny moment at the clinic: My last Frontier Days: A giant Thanksgiving dinner in August: My best bowling score to date (and yes, apparently it was my alter ego Kylie who got the score, not me): My first traditional Shave Ice: Hello, Fall (a.k.a. Winter… we are in Wyoming, after all! I’m just hoping the snow holds off a little bit longer than last year…)! I can already feel the holiday season coming! :) Until next time,

My First Tornado

Experienced my first real tornado today! Well, I don’t know if you can say “experienced”… here was the extent of it: Went to the post office at lunch and as I was driving back onto base, I noticed the clouds looked funny. I thought it looked like a tornado forming, but didn’t think anything of it. I’ve lived here for 3 years now and haven’t seen even one. But, by the time I parked, the tornado warning alarms were going off and everyone was running outside to take pictures (maybe not the smartest move…) before going downstairs into the tornado shelter. Anywhoo, I’m of course glad it didn’t come any closer. Really don’t want to experience one for real. No thank you there. Plus, last night we had a crazy hail storm that put poor little Finny boy into a nervous shaking fit :( Have I mentioned yet that I am ready for nicer weather. No? Ok, I’m ready for nicer weather. :)
