I am very tired this morning. I didn't go to bed till about 3:30 because I was glued to the weather channel. We had several storms move through our area and we were under a tornado warning. Those wicked storms deep in the south were moving our way and I could only hope they would weaken along their route. I couldn't keep the peepers open any longer, so I gave in and turned it off and went to bed. Fortunately, all is well here. The devastation in the states that were hit with tornadoes yesterday and last night is sad and horrible. I am so grateful that our storms were minimal. It is hard to imagine what lies ahead for the people who lost their homes and their businesses. There are no words to console those who lost loved ones ~ 213 deaths in five states. It seems there is more disturbing weather to come today ~ I hope things will calm down after that. This makes me very nervous because my son will be traveling to Mississippi over the weekend on a business trip.
Tornado season has roared into our lives this year. I pray the worst is over.
Mother Nature has certainly become angry over the years. I don't remember these terrible weather patterns when I was growing up. In the summers, there would be one or two thunder storms. There was little lightning. We would walk in the rain and play in the puddles along the road. These days, if it rains, there is terrible lightning, and there is almost always a tornado warning somewhere. Just one of the many changes that have taken place over the years.
