I've lived in the midwest for the majority of my life. The plains have a beauty unto themselves, especially during storm season. There are few things more awe-inspiring than seeing a storm roll toward you.
In Oklahoma, people go crazy about storms. There are drinking games for local weather
reporters. Other local reporters have special wardrobes they only wear during inclement weather. Probably the most famous of our reporters, Gary England, has even been lucky enough to be a part of national clips such as this. There are even clips of him in Twister.
Oh, the fame.
Since storms tend to bring with them cooler air, gloomy clouds,
and an all around sense of excitement, my favorite thing to do during a storm is take cover? FALSE.
Yesterday's storm seemed like the best day to bake a pie. And an apple pie seemed to fit with the All-American-ness that is a tornado. I love making pies.
Before and after!
And then I had a piece for breakfast with a mug of coffee.
Who wants to come over and help me finish it? There's coffee, too!
PS - Thanks to my mother for the new pie dish (!) and for letting me borrow her apple peeler/corer/slicer (!!). It's a life changing device. Truly.
