Tornados in Nearby Mississippi
When Mother Nature shows her strength in a tornado, it's very scary. She can be a fickle lady, sometimes, changing her journey at will and releasing her anger randomly. I spent yesterday listening to the pouring rains outside, not much thunder or lightning. Then last night the tornado sirens were blaring at 10:30 p.m. Finally, at 2 a.m. the local television stations gave an all clear. Let's hope that the tornado season quietens down for the rest of the year.
As we awake on this Sunday from very little sleep, we're thankful that we were spared. Hopefully, Mother Nature has settled down a bit today, and the rest of Spring/Summer will bring only welcome showers, not deadly tornados.
I'm looking out my window, and I see the sun's rays streaming across the azaleas in my neighbor's yard across the street. A welcome sight! Hope you're having a "good-weather" Sunday! (Photo from Jackson Clarion Ledger)
