Tornadoes and sickness do not mix

Yesterday I was suffering from some serious illness... I still am not sure what it is but today is getting slightly better after 11 hours of sleep, hydrogen peroxide in both ears, and regularly using oregano oil under my tongue...I am slowly feeling the sickness take the back seat. However yesterday I felt horrible...no energy at all and my throat felt like I was swallowing razor blades. Had it not been for Jeff Booth taking the day off I would have called in sick for my second time ever. However, like I said, I am feeling much better. Hopefully after another good night of sleep and napping between my three meetings tomorrow (spread out through the day) I will finally say goodbye to whatever this is.

So anyway, I was trying to rest as much as possible yesterday at work...all of the storms had left the area except for one...a fairly weak shower(no lightning), but sure enough a few reports of a funnel cloud and I had to cut on for about twenty minutes for a Tornado Warning. Luckily the funnel did not touch down, but just south of there in Georgetown there were two confirmed EF1 tornadoes with winds about 90 miles per hour. There were a lot of people very upset because I cut into their programing, but it was a VERY serious situation and people's lives and property were in danger. Luckily no one was injured with yesterday's storms only several farm buildings.

Today turned out fantastic...humidity was right around 35% for the afternoon, which is very low for this time of the year and takes an alright summer day and turns it into a fantastic summer day. Tomorrow looks like a repeat and then starting a warming trend for Thursday. Friday and Saturday a high pressure system will be sitting over us, however the models are hinting at a few systems trying to enter the area. It will be a battle of the forces, but I think there is a very slight chance for rain...the high pressure should limit development of any cells. Unfortunately a better chance for rain will be arriving late Sunday into Independence Day on Monday and into Tuesday as well. The rain will be scattered in nature, so as far as things look right now not a wash out. I will keep you posted on the holiday forecast for the days to come. Enjoy tomorrow before it heats up and have a good one!

  1. Got the mowing done before it got too warm this morning. Have you ever been tested for allergies?
