Bad weather on New Year’s Eve.

Happy New Year to all our family and friends. Hope this year will be a healthy, safe and prosperous one.

The weather here was mild all day yesterday until early evening then it all went crazy. Heavy trains, thunder, lightening and tornadoes all around us. At one point there were reports of tornadoes close by so we loaded up and headed toward Bob and Marcy’s. By the time we got over there the bad stuff had moved on past the campground so we turned around and headed back. There was no damage to the campground or area directly around it. Some of the streets in the area did have standing water.

Later in the evening John and I went over to firefighter Matt Jenkins’ house for a New Year’s Party in Flora, Mississippi. The weather was better in that area….only light rain when we arrived. We had a great time seeing old friends and catching up with everyone. After midnight the weather there changed. Heavy rains, thunder and lightening moved into the area….but thankfully no tornadoes. We did not leave there until after 1:30 a.m. Of course I was the designated driver. LOL

Laugh everyday. Happy trails. Stay safe.
