Mother Nature is not a happy soul here in Ashland. Tonight the loud rumbles of thunder and the giant flashes of lightning are also frightening! We even had hail to enhance the experience. Many storms are plaguing the South and they've left tragic destruction with loss of lives due to tornados. A tornado warning was issued in the last hour for Mansfield..a town about 15 miles from here. I grew up in the Midwest and this is nothing new for this time of year. You learn to keep a look out for funnel clouds. You make sure there's a place to run when the warning siren goes off. When we lived in town it was easy to hear. Out here in the country it's still loud enough to hear, but the windows are closed and the sound of the wind and rain can drown it out. When these things happen at night it's really a challenge....no way to see the sky and sleep can make you miss the warnings. Tonight Jack had a meeting in Canton. I'll feel better when he finally gets home. I'm sure he will too. I'm betting it's a steering wheel gripping night for driving in the heavy rain and strong winds. So even though this weather is expected this time of year, it's still enough to have you say "Whoa....I'm heading for the basement!" Thankfully the power is still on. Obviously, since my computer is working....and I'm thinking I probably shouldn't be on the computer during a thunderstorm....Yaya, signing off!
