THIS DAY HAS BEAUTIFUL START BUT NASTY ENDING
I finished getting everything I needed to do in town lined up this morning and after lunch I was off to run errands and take care of some tax listings at the courthouse along with delivering a cake order.
I had time to do some shopping for new living room rugs and found what I wanted at K-mart for alot less than 1/2 the price I looked at some on line for.
By the time I got to Walmart which was my last stop the beautiful blue skies were history and the dark clouds were back again with drizzly rain. The sky was so dark it was scary after what happened yesterday so I was glad to get home safely.
The storm that hit the town just east of here yesterday afternoon was officially declared a class 2 tornado with 115 mph winds. These pictures tell what that kind of wind can do.
This is proof that these mountains are not free from a tornadoes major damage.
Tonight we are experiencing very high winds here and blowing snow, it is 29 degrees at 11:30 and the snow showers are supposed to continue throughout the night.
After exercising tonight I watched a Duke/ Virginia b-ball game on TV, Duke won.
Yesterday I had time to go through pictures for some January Decade pictures.
January was the month my family actually really began as on January 2nd 1952 my dad and mom said their wedding vows.
Dad worked for GM for several years in the Cadillac department and back then he said the Oldsmobile was the testing ground for the more expensive Caddy.
I remember both my Aunt Hattie's and know that both of them were beautiful,loving ladies.
I am sitting here typing hoping the wind doesn't blow down the power lines before I finish this so I'm saying a quick good bye tonight.
May God bless us all through this crazy weather.
Good Night and God Bless.
