The storm that rolled through

Centralia, Missouri
June 19, 2017 7:11am CST
This weekend we've had a couple storms, one was short but pretty strong. We had to leave game Saturday night early as it zoomed up behind us. We made it to the point we had to cut north, then (as it was an east bound storm) it caught us on the road. There was black out conditions and sideways rain. I haven't heard of any major damages, but it was pretty scary to be on. Life can be like that. You can be zooming along, thinking things are fine, awesome even, then out of nowhere depression, anxiety, or more physical issues like health problems, or money issues, can hit you like a storm. This might require you take a detour, shelter for a bit, get help, etc. I'm just saying, life has storms, that's normal. It's normal to freak out now and then too when caught in one.

Storms happen sometimes taking us completely off guard. Being ready to take shelter is crucial.

Yes whether it's a thunderstorm or a storm of anxiety, it can be hard to get through.

I find thunderstorms easier than anxiety storms!

Very true observation. I'm glad you didn't get hurt in the storm--it does sound scary!

We had a stormy weekend as well. Lots of flooding on my Caribbean island.

Life's storms are truly draining
