It was 4 a.m. when Olive jumped on the bed. She does this most mornings to catnap on my husband’s chest. However, this morning she missed and landed on his face.
My husband howled and ran into the bathroom, his face dripping blood. Olive got his nose, upper and lower lips and chin with her polydactyl claws. His face is a mess.
Later, I went to swim laps and the lifeguards told us to get out of the pool due to lightening.
My husband was out on errands when the car wouldn’t start. He had to wait 90 minutes for AAA.
I was at home amazed how the bright sunny day had turned into thunder, lightning, pouring rain and monster winds. There were tornadoes in Flagstaff — two hours away.
Heading back home after AAA replaced the battery, my husband called and said he was in a haboob!
I googled it and told him to pull over immediately. Everything I read said NOT TO DRIVE. Here’s a video of the haboob.
He said he was driving through it. There were trees on the freeway. Everyone was going under 40 mph and had their flashers on.
Once he drove out of the haboob he ended up in a flash flood.
My anxiety went into overdrive. He made it home safely — finally.
Have you ever had one of those days?
