Did you guys hear that there were tornadoes in Tennessee this week?
Yes. In fact, two people were killed about 35 miles from where I was. We didn’t even have wind in the Brentwood suburbs but we had lots of preamble to get ready. The business office I go to there is a tornado shelter so I am moderately used to hunkering down.
The thing I do most often there has relocated to another company location in Denver. I wonder what kind of shelter I will get familiar with there? A dry atmosphere shelter to escape dehydration? An ugly landscape shelter to rest your eyes from looking at the scrubby brown hills? A hipster shelter for respite of Oh Thank God You’re Another Normal Person! and we can forget about the all-natural organic specialty coffee bars and the goddam bicycles all over the place.
