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

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"
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.

Went to let the chickens out and assess the damage.

Minimal tree limbs down within eyesight so far and I found the tree that fell. It's not a huge tree and won't even need to be cut up any time soon. It just missed a stand of Cedars though.. It's one that was just at the edge of the wood line.

Everyone else okay?

Everything is fine here, just watching the deer do the water removal dance.

AW, that's precious! I've not seen any here yet this morning. They're still probably hunkered down under the pines, hehe. Can't say as I blame them.

Looks like we were all protected this morning, although the news says a man did die in Tennessee from a falling tree. Makes me sad.. There will probably be reports of damage throughout the day. Hope there are no more injuries.

I'm headed back to bed now, hopefully get at last a few hours of sleep. It's pouring here again and is making me drowsy. Didn't get much rest for all the wind overnight..

Chat with you all later!

Good morning all. I promise I won't try to get a job as a weatherlady! lol I was hoping and thinking most of that storm was going to miss most of y'all. It was so big (long and wide) that I guess it is going to or has made it to all of you. I hope you all stay safe and have minimal if any damage. It was a bad storm but there have been much worse. I'm not sure why but Illinios and Missouri usually get it worse than we do here. I heard lots of damage reports from up there. I heard of a couple injuries, I hope nothing bad! Please be safe!

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.
Hempburn, you are so funny! LOL You make me laugh just right out loud nearly every day. I think you need a side job in stand up comedy. lol AND thank you for always being nice and not getting caught up in the drama.:)

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.
Good morning Lala. Sounds like a good day to cancel an appointment to me!:) You and the hubby please be careful out there! Hope you will let us know when you get home.(That's the bossy meddling mama in me coming out. lol) Do be safe!

Some storms do have a silver lining huh? lol We didn't lose power last night. Not many years ago we would lose it frequently! I think a lot of the local tree trimming helped that. Enjoy your time at home!:)

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!!
I do post from a smart phone and on the mobile site I can't even see the judging icons or the locations YET some dimwit accuses me of doing all of the "judging" and "spinning my location" ...yada yada yada! LOL It is really funny sometimes how they do the judging then blame me for it. They are creative! LOL My favorite is when they actually give me good judging icons then blame me for doing it myself. Too funny! LOL I can see them now doing it then as soon as they do hollering, "Ohhhh look what she did!!! Fake! Fake! Fake!" LOL The dimwit rant over that yesterday had me rolling.

Thanks, WKG. Yes, I survived the storm with no damage, thankfully. The wind woke me at 3:00 AM; I got up, turned on TWC and checked outside periodically to access the sky. Sleep being illusive at that point, I drank coffee and kept watch. I actually enjoy watching storms; but I also have a great deal of respect for them; the same with snakes. lol
I could see the storm at first light. It was a black, nasty looking thing coming out of the southwest. I dressed hurriedly at that point, just in case; so as not to be caught in my skivvies. LOL
And as long as I was up, it seemed like a good morning for sausage, homemade biscuit and gravy. It sure was good with the morning coffee! Hope everyone is having a great day so far!

The risk of a headache is strong; try to lead a more regular, relaxed life. You need to do some serious soul searching today and ask yourself some painful questions. Someone close to you who appears to be very solicitous may have their own agenda, so be on your guard. Take extra precautions ...

An old man calls out to a Mr.Fake at home in the middle of the night, Iíve fallen and I can't get up. I need your hand to come and help me up. I heard him say I tried my best to get up on my own. The old man waited and waited as long as his body would let him on the floor, NO call back NO show up. He didnít want to interfere with the gentleman at work; he didnít want him to loose his new job like the Mr.Fake did. The gentleman didnít mind was happy to help had a good heart. The Boss who wouldnít have it any other way was very understanding. Thank god for people who still have a heart.

Never be bullied into silence. Never allow yourself to be made a victim. Accept no one's definition of your life; define yourself.

Hi HilLogic. The storm passed through here last night from about 10-ish until about 12:30-1:00. I was up so it didn't mess with my sleep. I know, it is strange but I kind of like storms too. I just hate it when people get hurt or have property damage. Like you, I do respect them. When the wind started blowing real good I stood at the corner of my porch and had a Leonardo DiCaprio in the Titanic moment. LOL ...but then a small voice said, "get in the house dummy!" LOL
I bet your biscuits and gravy were good. I stir fried some jalapeno peppers (not hot), onion, and turkey then added a couple eggs and cheese for an omlete. It was actually the best one I have had in a long time.
You take care, glad you made it through the storm okay. Have a good one!
