Good morning everyone. Hopefully you are not waking up too cranky after a night of heavy rain, thunder and wind. I didn’t hear a thing after I went to bed, but I am a very heavy sleeper so that isn’t unusual. I think a tree could crash through our bedroom and I would still be sawing logs. Although I have noticed that any small noise from the baby monitor does wake me up… but that’s another story for another time. I am sure there are other mothers who can relate.
It was all about the weather again today. Jeriann says tomorrow could be the most serious day so far this week. We had a lot of rain overnight and the Raccoon, Des Moines and Skunk rivers are all ready to spill out. Tomorrow the big story will definitely be flooding. And now Jeriann says the weekend will not be dry like we first thought.
She says she will officially drop out on Saturday and endorse Barack Obama. People who talk politics for a living on television say she is on Obama’s short list of VP candidates. There is also word that two other women, the governors of Kansas and Arizona are also potential running mates. Having worked in Kansas for a couple of years in the late ’90’s… I feel like I have a bit of a connection to Kathleen Sebelius, the governor of Kansas. When I started working at WIBW-TV, the CBS in Topeka, Kathleen was the Insurance Commissioner of Kansas and came on the noon show (which I anchored) each week to talk about insurance advocacy issues. She was such a classy, smart and truly nice woman and I knew back then she would have a bright future in politics. It has been fun to watch her move on to the governor of Kansas and become a star of the Democratic Party on a national level. The fact that she was able to win (by a lot) the office of governor as a Democrat in one of the most conservative states in the country says a lot about this woman. People really like her and I can see her as Vice President.
Have a great day and enjoy the sunshine while it lasts. Pat is back tomorrow.
