Tornado Warning in Connecticut

September 8th, 2012 at 11:29 am

I know, it's old hat for all you folks in the midwest, but here in the east, it's a bit unusual.

Tornado warning for most of the state until 9 pm. It's gusty outside and alternately raining and sunny, but very humid throughout.

I pulled my car into the garage as a precaution.

Update on the Pearle Vision story:

I decided to write a quick note to pearle vision online about the optician who deemed it necessary to demonstrate how to use a lens cleaning cloth to me using his personal cell phone, then handed it to me, ignoring my request for a new one. Ick.

I didn't name names, but I asked if they could mail me a cloth as I could really use one.

The store manager called me within a few hours and was super nice and very professional. He already spoke to the guy and yes, he'll mail me a new one. He happened to be Chinese, and I know that in the Chinese culture, an actual apology is considered very important.

In American culture, it is not. How many times have you had some sort of issue or overcharge at a retail store and the clerk, while she will correct the error, never apologizes? So he made a point to apologize, and he used that word, "apologize," in doing so. I'm impressed, and I will return to Pearle Vision.

    Stay safe. You must be in a Tornado watch, where the conditions are right for a tornato. A warning is when the tornado is on the ground or the clouds are beginning to swirl in such a way that a tornado is imminent. Can you tell, I'm a tornado expert after living in the midwest for nearly 40 years?

    And great news on the lens cloth and response from Pearle Vision!!
