110 In The Shade: Peace, quiet and tornadoes

Richard Ryan

I got the wake up alert exactly a week ago. All hands on deck. They’re here. Our family from OKC, also known as Oklahoma City, had arrived.

We have a quiet house. Very quiet. It’s more likely that the classical radio station will be playing rather than the Junior Disney channel. A lot of reading goes on sort of like a library. We do watch Lidia’s Kitchen, and Rick Steves’ travel show in the evening. The cooking shows instruct me how to put on weight in more delicious ways. But that’s it. No battling Fox vs. CNN. Once in a while Rachael (Madhouse) Maddow sneaks in, but less so recently.
