I hope everyone is all right after the tornadoes last night - looked bad on the TV news this morning.

It's 70*F and sunny here. In about an hour, we're going for a bike ride downtown to see the Memorial Day parade. Gorgeous day for grilling

JoAnn, I have never lived in tornado country and cannot imagine how scary it might be. Isn't it early in the year for such bad tornadoes? Such a helpless feeling - I hope your day is tranquil and you find some time for laughter.

This is the time of year around here were they can get really strong. It has been quiet a few years that my town has been hit directly, but you never know. My heart goes out to the people in Parkersburg.

Thank God it missed us again. I had taken all of my flower pots and wind chimes in last night , just in case. It is a good thing I did, we did have some strong winds along with tons of rain.

Pretty unholiday-like here. Gloomy, gloomy, gloomy. Been raining/storming since 1 a.m. Thunder, lightning, wind. So far we've gotten about 2 inches of rain. No sun. Lots of Memorial Day parades/festivities have been canceled here or brought indoors. Still raining steadily and the temp is about 72F. Normally it would be in the upper 80s.

With all the gloom, it's a real lazy day. Still, Buck and I will participate in our usual porch settin' later and fire up the grill for our burgers.
