Good chance I will lose power soon. Power lines running through the boondocks will surely find a few tree limbs somewhere. They always seem to. Just glad I don't work for the electric company on nights like this. Not a good night to be up in a cherry picker.

And more is on the way. 50 mph winds here, under tornado warning. Pouring as fast as it can come down. Woke my butt up around 4:00 am EST. Scary.

Hope everyone stays safe.

I am new to this thread as well, but I think the symbols you referred to are put there by people who are angry because they are incapable of expressing themselves verbally through intelligent dialog and therefore must resort to posting nasty symbols.

people tend to judge post based on their personal feelings towards others....rather than weather or not intelligent or nice conversation is taking place.

at the right time of day you could say the sun is out and the sky is blue and and get mean faces, off light bulbs and peanuts

or you could spout a full line of !@%$#!^$!^ profanity and get smileys and hearts.

been that way since the beginning of the thread.... just ignore it :)

Good morning, KY neighbors! I hope everyone remains safe today. School has been cancelled for today in Laurel Co., as the storm is due to hit at the time the buses would be on the road. I'm sure that is a relief to all parents of school age children.
I will keep a watch on TWC along with prayers for safety of everyone in the path of the storms. Batten down the hatches and have a great day!

I made it! It is WINDY out there! The wind seems to be coming out of the south so maybe it will miss y'all. Lightening is flashing across the west. This is not good, it is 70 degrees out there! Just heard a mobile home has been blow over, in IL I think - trees down too. I hope nobody gets hurt!
Sounds terrible out here, but winds are abating just a little. I have to go to a doctor's appointment in Shepardsville (just outside of Louisville)this morning. Hubby drives, but I still don't like to go on the highways when weather is bad. I'm a little gunshy about wet roads because of hydroplaning.

Very windy here, my poor chicken laid the same egg three times. Ok, so I got no chicken, but it is very windy. Took the dog out and he was scared of the wind sounds. So I carried him further out into the yard and then the rains hit. We got soaked before we could get back in and he still did not get to go. Under a tornado watch here until noon so batten the hatchs mates.

Storm has passed where I am. Heard at least one tree fall somewhere not far off, but I'm in the woods so I won't know until the sun comes up. The sound of the wood splitting and ripping, then that infamous thud...

It was nasty for a while! The phone rang at around 5:30 with the auto-warning system telling of approaching danger. About 1/2 an hour later, all hell broke loose. The dogs all jumped up, my ears popped and a gust shook the house like a truck had gone by. As quickly as that came, it was gone and the torrential rains came. Again, as quickly as that barreled through, it was gone about 5 minutes later.

Now It's eerily quiet out there. London, Corbin, etc, are now in the bullseye from what the t.v. news is stating.

You all stay save out there! I care about each of you and said a prayer for your safety!!!

Good morning, everyone. I've already had my second cup of coffee. The wind is starting to quiet down, but we are under tornado watch until noon. School has been delayed for one hour. I've got to leave in about an hour and hope that the worst of the storms are over. Talk to you this afternoon or evening (if I'm not blown away).

I may have to rethink singing "Soft Kitty" to Ab when she's ill or down. Seems the common house cat is responsible for killing 1.4 to 1.7 Billion birds every year. It is diffecult to estiamte the small animals killed by cats but it is between 6.9 and 20 billion rabbits, chipmunks, mice and other small mammals. Mass bird death has nothing on cats.

Perhaps I will just rewrite the song to a more realistic aspect.

"Hard kitty, tough kitty, little ball of death,, cold kitty harsh kitty, Tweety on your breath"

It's just a mute stalker/troll, "Mixer". We don't even pay attention to them any more. It's obvious who was doing it a long time ago anyway. When they DON'T show up, it's an oddity, LOL! But the pieces started to fall together eventually and was easy to see who it probably is.

It ain't nuthin' but a thang, baby..
:)

Don't be chased off by it! Those little dim bulbs and frowning faces don't amount to a hill of beans anyway. We really do have some funny talks in here sometimes, hehe! Stick around and join us!! The more, the merrier!!

Lala, you be careful out there. The roads are drenched. There are bound to be people in a huge hurry to get nowhere...

mine tend to leave them beheaded on my welcome mat. no wonder the Egyptians worshiped them...... you can cross a dog and five minutes later all they want is a petting and to lay at your feet. you cross a cat and your house gets ransacked, your shoes get peed in, and you wake up with unexplained scratch marks. i have never met a cat that didn't have some sort of personality disorder either. maybe the egyptians walked funny because they strolled with their backs pressed against the walls so they could see the furry little schizos coming.

Cats do have their little ticks. Any you are right they will grudge hold big time and don't forgive much.
