Crazy Weather
« on: March 01, 2012, 08:22:07 pm »
With all the crazy weather that has been going on around the nation, it takes me back to when I was in school around(50yrs) ago when the Tornado ripped thru Greenwood.  I always hate to see devastation from twisters.  I know spring is here, and I always fear the worst.  Just thought I would tell everyone to remember those devastated by Tornado's.

 Any Crazy weather you remember when you where a kid?

My father "worked" that tornado when I was young, I remember him telling us how bad it was and then driving down from Ft. Smith to see.

I remember as a kid, we didn't have all the warnings on tv and there were no sirens.   My dad and I would stand outside and watch the sky if it was during the day.   If it was night and even the smallest storm came up, mom would herd us all down to our basement where we had cots to finish out the night.  Dad would watch the barometric pressure also and if it dropped then back to the basement.  Once a very bad storm came up and my grandfather was trying to open the door and it was just not going to open.  He yelled at us to get to the basement.  It didn't hit us but it was close to our house. 

I like today's way of alerting us of bad weather much better.   :) I just  wish I had a basement.

Seriously considered taking up the Goverment on the $3000 tax deduction or something like that to put in a Tornado Shelter.  I need one for the g-kids to come over and use.  I have to say my great granddad listened to Noah Weather, not only for weather but for the river crest reports he worked at the Lock and darn in Ozark.  Still listen to Noah Weather, cause of him.

My gosh it was so windy up here in NEA that I thought I was going to be sucked up in the air.  I went to Burger King at lunch and I couldn't see where I was going because my hair looked like an afro.   Shoulda worn a pony tail today. 

Prayers for the poor souls that have been hit by the weather.

Prayers for all the victims from the recent storms.  I just read where the little girl found in the field has passed away.  This just breaks my heart.

God be with them all and please be with us as this next week there seem to be more in store.

I can remember building a snowman with my sister on Easter Sunday in Booneville.  It was either 1968 or 1969.

Yikes!   Hope you have a life preserver!   I think we are going to get some rain but nothing like that side of the state.  Of course my son has gone to a river so now I am trying not to worry about him.   

My lawn did get mowed today so it can soak that rain up.  I think this is the earliest I ever remember mowing the lawn.

Broke my thumb the other day, can't pull in the clutch on the motorcycle, makes me very sad on a day like today.

Speaking of steaks .... next time you pass through WM --- Bourbon Street Steak House ---- best steak in the state. Go in the dog track and head upstairs .... you will thank me later.

You can cut the filet with a butter knife..... really good. Medium rare is the way to go.

We were in Memphis yesterday and I tried to get daughter to stop at the track but you know how that goes.   The princess got her way.   :)   She just HAD to get back home. 

Medium rare is the only way to have a steak IMO.

A good cut of meat, I don't do much more than sear it. I guess they call it being served bleu.

It is called bleu or raw in AR!

If steaks are over cooked you can't even taste the flavor of the beef IMO. but I like it medium well.

That's way too done. Medium rare is the most a decent cut of meat should he cooked. Anything after that is draining massive amounts of flavor.

It was HUMID in San Antonio.   I mean really humid and they are really concerned about this summer too.

Good thing I can get to some cool water this summer. 

 I'm sorry for those who hate the heat.   I agree that 30 days of that temp is too much and I hope it doesn't do that again but I am thinking we better get ready for it again.
