It's been a morning filled with thunderstorms, winds, and tornadoes dancing all around. The rain was needed, the other elements we can do without.
Tornado season is once again upon us. The Tennessee Valley is under the dreaded "Tornado Warning".
My husband tells me that tornadoes were a rare occurrence in these parts when he was a boy, nowadays, it's a given from early Spring through late Fall.
We've seen lots of trees down, roof damage, but fortunately no loss of life.
The next couple of days severe thunderstorms and possible tornadoes are forecast, not only for Tennessee but most of the surrounding states.
Be safe, adhere to the warnings, have an emergency plan in place.
I puddle up the neighborhood
I make the postman mad
I wake the worm and spank the frog
Sleeping on his lily pad
And when the tulips in their beds
Nod happily, it's true
I shake the petals of their hands
And say, How do you do.
Two tornadoes touched down in our county and the adjacent one. Gratefully, no one was injured, just lots of property damage.
Thank you for your thoughts and well-wishes.
Sunset after a day of mayhem.
