what a difference a day makes...

as the song sings, "twenty four little hours". wednesday and thursday the panhandle saw tornado action. friday and saturday the panhandle's straight winds were doing their worst, turning the horizons to a dusty brown. today, sunday, was totally different; mostly clear and sunny, temps into the mid 70's and the winds-- what winds? today, in contrast, there was hardly a breeze stirring. there's a lot of truth to the old saw "if you don't like the weather, wait five, a change is on the way". like the system that spawned the tornadoes we had around here on wednesday and thursday evenings. that system passed on through making it's way to to the east and the south. panhandle folks got off light, damage wise. folks over that way weren't so lucky. my heartfelt sympathies go out to those folks who lost family and to those who's homes and businesses were destroyed. their lives will never be the same. all in all, the panhandle winds aren't something we should complain about. ask the folks in yazoo county, mississippi about the winds that tore through their world saturday. those folks have a legitimate beef. aio
