Weird Weather

Here's a photo from one of the recent tornado's that hit western Tennesee.

We’ve been having much rain, and it is this much needed rain that has stopped any progress. As I said before, we have been in a draught and the uncontrolled fires have been bad.

Along with this rain, bad storms have been very commonplace. We’ve had tornadoes for the last few weeks with increasing frequency. This first round hit about 30 miles north of us and did much damage, not to mention the pounding that Missouri took (I think 2 died in the storms there). This last round a couple of days ago, dropped something like 63 tornado’s and tore up much of eastern Arkansas and western Tennessee, with 28 confirmed death’s so far. The eastern Arkansas town of Marmaduke (opposite side of the state) was all but wiped out. The last report I saw, said that there was no building that was untouched, and many were destroyed all out.

It seems like these storms have been hitting our area on Thursday’s. The last one looked severe (tornadic) over Fort Smith, about 30 miles south of us. They had sirens and all going, but thank God, nothing touched the ground. The worst damage was from hail.

We are once again setting up for another round of storms, and yes, they are supposed to be hitting on Thursday. Wednesday is supposed to start with some thunderstorms with an increase in intensity on Thursday morning, according to the local weather guy’s. According to NOAA (National Oceanic & Atmospheric Association), The main brunt of the storms will be north into Nebraska and Missouri, leaving us with a slight threat of severe weather. While I am glad to see we will miss most of this, we will be praying for our neighbor’s to the north.

Time will tell. In the mean time, here’s a picture I just picked out of the blue.

Until next posting, be blessed!

Fake ID...

I became quite angry the other day while writing out a check at a convenience store. The clerk asked for my date of birth and drivers license. Not sure what triggered it, but I just got mad.

I ended up making up a driver’s license number and new birth date. I then went on to give her my eye color, weight, height, marital status, number of kids, and astrological sign, to which she gave me an odd look.

I do understand that people often pass “bad” checks and all, but do I really look like somebody who is going to stiff someone else? Does the fact that they have seen me twice a week for five years play into it? I don’t know…I just know that for some reason, I became angry…
Go figure…
