April 26th, 2016 100% Chance

April 26th, 2016 100% Chance

Today was one of those days that refused to stop. Part of my job is doing on-air weather coverage when storms threaten our listening area. The forecast this morning was calling for a 100% chance of severe storms. In several ways, the reaction to the forecast was unprecedented. We had school districts in our state closed by the threat. Cancellations of community activities came into our studios right and left throughout the day. Everyone was convinced, this would be the worst storm outbreak in a very long time. It wasn't good for some in this region. However, for the most part, our area was spared the worst. The added studio duties called for a sixteen hour day for me.

I planned well, made sure I had what I needed when I needed it--I leaned on coffee a little to help keep me alert and made it through, very well. I stayed connected with a couple of support buddies, I maintained the integrity of my maintenance calorie budget, I remained abstinent from refined sugar and I exceeded my water goal by 8oz. I'm calling it a successful day.

I'm letting the Tweets take it the rest of the way! It's time to sleep. The alarm is set for 4:30am, morning show at 6am. Luckily, no severe weather for our area in tomorrow's forecast!

Thank you for reading and your continued support,


  1. We had those storms up here in Nebraska too. I just wanted to say how much I appreciate those of you who stay late at your jobs, and report the weather so the rest of us can stay safe.

  2. Excellent! Wonderful planning. Patti :)

  3. Thanks for reporting in even though your schedule was MORE than full!

  4. I was waiting for you to tie in the "100% chance of storms" literal title with a metaphorical musing on life. Like, there is a 100% chance that things will get difficult, that you will have bad and stressful days, but you still need to maintain the integrity of diet plan and don't let the streams cross! There, I've done it for you.


I sincerely appreciate you taking the time to leave a comment. Thank you for your support!
