Flashback Wednesday

Flashback #1:  "there's something in the fog!!!!!!!!!" 

Sheesh was it foggy this morning! I felt just like Adreinne Barbeau freaking out because I could not see a damn thing driving into work.  The fog lasted for about 60 of the 86 miles to work.  I fully expected some ghost pirates to jump out at me.  Only to discover that when I hit them it would be a deer instead.  Fortunately, that didn't happen. 

Flashback #2 - "does anyone know where the love of God goes when the waves turn the minutes to hours..." 
35 years ago the Edmund Fitzgerald sank in Lake Superior during a storm that most consider worse than any atlantic hurricane.  God rest the souls of the 29 crewmen aboard. 

Flashback #3 - "I want my maypo"  - 

mainly because I love it.  And i wanted it for breakfast.  The jelly beans were a good alternative though. (yeah yeah yeah, diabetic, blah blah blah.  I needed sugar)

Maypo! We haven't had that in ages! And we completely forgot about the Edmund Fitzgerald--we'll have to Google it now to refresh our memories.

Maypo?!! I so remember that! But we had to have cream of wheat or oatmeal. Ack.

The Edmund Fitzgerald came to mind a few weeks back when the same kind of weather system hit -

I am so NOT a fan of hot cereals so I'm in the ACK category with Barb!

I have driven in fog like that.
One time on the way to work it was so dark I could only see within the cab of the SUV. IT is really eerie to have to drive in conditions like that.
