  • We have had severe weather here in the Commonwealth the past several weeks.

    We have heard a lot of tornado warnings and watches. Do you know the difference between the two?

  • A friend of mine posted on Facebook that if April showers bring May flowers, look out.

    So far he has been wrong since it has been May showers too.

    The Carroll County Mesonet station reported 12.38 inches of rain for April, which is about 10 inches more than we received a year ago. We are already at more than 3 inches for May. I have been down to Henderson where the river was higher and there is a lot of land flooded down that way and the radio was reporting that the entire town of Smithland was being evacuated. As bad as it is here, someone else has it worse.

  • I certainly do enjoy being a grandparent. We have had the greatest time in the past month spending time with all five of our grandchildren. 

    Since four of them live in Georgia, we don’t get to see them as often as we like.  This year they were able to visit us at our Florida condo while on spring break, along with their parents. The other grandchild was also on break in Florida, but at Disney World, so we went for the day and had a great time.
