It has been a dreary, rainy, cold and crappy day all day long here in good ol’ WSNC. It’s
almost May, which should mean much warmer temperatures, at least we would think so. I went to work in shorts and a t-shirt today. I figured, well, okay, it will get warmer as the day goes on. That is not and was not the case. It stayed wet and cold all day. I recorded Fan Interference with TC at home, via Skype, and just watched the rain pour onto the street.
I saw someone laying on the ground first thing this morning, with a broken leg, waiting for ambulances, firetrucks and paramedics all rushing to help them. Luckily, the rain hadn’t come back just yet. The patient lay on the ground after a huge box of something had fallen off the truck of the delivery company he worked for and snapped his leg. I didn’t see it happen just the “waiting.” That added to my dreary day.
Then, I found out that Sonny Davis, who along with his son, Spencer, own City Beverage, passed away on Friday. He was 81. He had worked on Thursday and died at his home. As I said on The Man Who Ate the Town Podcast recording earlier today, if you didn’t know Sonny, you’d think that he was just grumpy or rude. After you’d had a chance to talk with him, and he got to laugh a little or smile, then you realized he wasn’t that way, he was just quiet and he was just, well, Sonny. I feel bad for Spencer and his family. I’m sending out good thoughts and positive vibes to them all. I’m sure they could use them.
I hope you all stay dry, warm and cozy in this “spring” weather.
Until tomorrow, same blog channel…
