MaxGoldberg, of the Boca Raton Goldbergs, is our nervous nelly of a cat. A strange voice in the house, a knock at the door, an unwanted sound, send him scurrying under a bed somewhere.
So it came as no surprise that, this week, as we listened to the news of the horrific storms and tornadoes that rumbled across the South and watched our local news warning us that we were in for the same bad weather: possible tornadoes, hail as big as a golf ball, straight-line winds in gusts up to 70mph, and possibilities of over a foot of rain, that MaxGoldberg would become even more uneasy..
Tuesday morning, Max took his post at the window checking the weather, watching the sky darken ....
Then he made his report known to me before making his own decision ...
He spent the day hiding under the bedspread, waiting for a storm that never came.
Not a wind.
Not a hail storm.
Nary a drop of rain.
MaxGoldberg's motto is Better safe than sorry.
Or I ain't takin' no chances!
