Day 1041 of 365 Again.

So it basically rained all day in Pittsburgh today. As I was getting off work it was getting worse. In fact, when we got home the news said there was a tornado warning and server thunderstorms. The news not only begged everyone to hide in their basements but actually suggest cowering in a closet (no, I am not making this up).

But I know better. Now is not the time when men cower. Now is the time when men throw on some spandex, grab a big hammer and climb on their roof and wait for an origin to happen.

Steph thought I was nuts. But then one of us now has the power to command the storm now and the other doesn’t.

Who’s crazy now?

    evaxebra: Superstong, nigh invulnerable and the power to control the weather.

    [AJ]: Well, I don’t need to, see. "Whosoever holds this hammer, if he be worthy, shall possess the power of Thor." Traditionally that means you get the power boost and some personalized version of the costume, but you don’t really become Thor. See Beta Ray Bill, Dargo, Thunderstrike… So I think I’m good.

    "server thunderstorms"??? is this new technology generated storms that don’t actually produce physical rain and lightning, but only the image and sound of it??? lol

    It’s been rainy here in Omaha for the last few days. And HOT.
