Texas Floods

Hi everyone

Well, it seemed as though I touched a nerve wishing people a “Happy” Memorial Day, so I took the “Happy” off the post.  Everyone made great comments, and I’ll be more mindful of that going forward, but I certainly don’t appreciate the mean posts on the blog and/or name calling, so I went ahead and deleted those remarks.  This blog has always meant to be an encouraging place – never hurtful or mean.  But I don’t mind constructive criticism, so I will always appreciate those with a point of view and or suggestions.

There’s a lot going on across the South this week with storms and floods over parts of Texas and Louisiana:

Here in the Northeast, a cold front will drop temperatures significantly, bring heavy rain as well as the threat for severe storms later today:

And our first Pacific Hurricane of the season has been christened.  Here’s Amanda:

The good news is this storm is expected to weaken, and not affect any land.

Keep in mind, the Atlantic hurricane begins this weekend…

And it’s beginning to feel a lot like summer over much of the country…

That’s all for now.  Hope you’re all having a great week.
