  • Big Storm for the NW, National Coffee Day, and my trophy came!

    Hi all!

    A quick weekend post.  We’re watching bigtime rain/flooding across the Northwest this weekend. 

    I will have a full report tomorrow on the rainfall totals…today and tonight will be the worst of this storm, and then by Wednesday things should improve, but it has been a rough few days for our friends across parts of Washington, Oregon, Northern California and Idaho!

    We’ve also seen flooding rain over parts of Texas this weekend.  Some areas around San Antonio and Austin received over 4 inches of rain in just a matter of hours.

    Incase you missed it, I was up early for Fox and Friends celebrating National Coffee Day.   Dunkin Donuts were kind enough to bring me my own box of coffee and many donuts to keep me energized through the show:

    And my NY Funniest Reporter Contest Trophy came Friday!

    I will proudly display it right next to my bowling prizes!  (LOL)   I wish it came with a matching sash and tiara!  :)

    Talk to you all Monday!  Enjoy the rest of the weekend…

Hi everyone. Thank you so much for your words of support. I appreciate you all very much. I had a busy day yesterday. We got all the funeral arrangements settled so I came back to Cumberland for a few days. The funeral is Friday. It's a nice day today so I think I'm going to take a drive out to Garrett County to take some fall foliage photos. I think it will do me good to get out for a little while. Thank you again for all your love & support. We have a special group here & you are all very precious to me. God bless you. Margie

I want to thank everyone for your words of support. My mom died about an hour ago. She's in a much better place now. I have to get myself together to head back to her place. Thanks again, everyone. God bless you all. Margie

Hi all. Margie, I hope things are going better for you today. The rains came most of the night but calmed down this morning and only a couple of small fronts have moved through. My wife braved the rain after church and picked 13 belle peppers, a few onions, and 7 more zuchinni and some tomatoes. Looks like we need to start freezing stuff before it goes to waste. She baked 14 loaves zuchinni bread and froze them Friday. The raspberries are also coming on again. Bye, later; Sam
