The storm has passed.
That storm the meteorologist on t.v. predicted would come our way was only a bit of thunder and a small amount of gentle rain.
It has become a media frenzy these days. It creates a false sense of panic and dread every single time there are a few cumulonimbus clouds in the skies.
Why do they do this? Is it for ratings? At what cost? To make us all become so afraid that we reach for the phone to ask our home owner's insurance agent to increase our coverage for cataclysmic coverage?
I don't know about you but I think the media has gotten a bit out of hand. It's true, we live here in the area of the Great Plains states where they refer to us as Tornado Alley. And for certain, Tulsa got hit by a tornado. But in spite of this probability it is as if the media wants everyone in the path of any storm to feel an impending doomsday feeling that makes us think that somehow the words of the storm wizard of the television set will somehow quell our fears by creating deeper fears by their own words and images?
So, the next time you see some clouds in the sky and it is dark and grey, don't fret the coming storm. Be confident that what will happen will indeed happen and the only thing you can do is roll up your car windows, go inside and have a hot cup of coffee and say a little prayer that your roof don't blow off and that your kitty cat won't be sucked up in a vortex!
