Current Events

Today I realized that the current news stories in Orlando perfectly sum up why I miss my city so much. Here are three things in the news back home that bring me great amusement:

1. Tropical Storm
I've been joking about how lovely it is that as soon as tornado season is over, I'm leaving the Midwest just in time to get to Florida for hurricane season. It looks like the storms are getting an early start this year, though, since we already have our first named tropical storm! Nothing too exciting seems to be happening yet, but Orlando is getting a crapload of rain.


2. Bear in a Tree

One of the major news stories yesterday was this little bear fellow that felt like hanging out in our lovely downtown area, so he just picked a tree and enjoyed the view. You can read the whole news story here.


3. D'oh!
I've been loving all of the pics of the new Springfield expansion at Universal, where you can now have a beer at Moe's Tavern, eat a Krusty Burger, or visit my favorite shop name, Lisa's Teahouse of Horror. I'm a huge Simpsons fan, so I can't wait to visit this new area as soon as I'm back in town!
