As Corrine and I were grocery shopping one day during her visit she asked, "If you could have any Super Hero Power what would you pick?".
Great question!!! (Oh, to be 12 again)
The discussion went on for the rest of our shopping trip and the whole drive home.
One of the first powers Corrine thought she might like to have was the ability to control nature. I thought that had too much responsibility attached to it - and I stand by my position!!!
Now just because I wouldn't want the responsibility of controlling nature doesn't mean that I don't want to know what is going on with it! And that explains my most recent Internet obsession (with thanks to Lisa, who has been addicted to this site for awhile) -Internet radar weather
Way cool. I can see where rain is falling in the local area and by hitting the 'play' option can see where our weather is coming from and what is moving our way.
It also gives me a way to figure out how long a storm is going to last. All which is pretty neat if you spend alot of your day outside.
Last night I got hooked on watching a storm track northeast across the province. It looked pretty severe and sure enough, when I checked the 'lighting detection' feature, I could see that we were going to get a nice little thunderstorm.
Now, Kara - who recently has decided she doesn't like thunderstorms - sitting on my head at 1am probably would have been a good indicator that thunder was approaching, but it was cool to have 'pre Kara' warning!
It's lovely this here this morning. The much needed rain overnight has 'cleaned up' the dust and dirt around the yard and perked up all the vegetation. The radar is showing blue skies for at least the next few hours, so I'm off to doing some more puttering and chores.
Oh and - hands down - the ability to fly!!!
What Super Hero power would you choose???
