A terrible cold got the best of me late last week and over the weekend. I missed work on Saturday hoping that sleep and medicine would fight this bug that some how found me.
It is making headlines again, another tornado outbreak occurs southeast of us with more than 20 fatalities reported. The hardest hit area was northeast Oklahoma. Picher, OK suffered some terrible damage from a tornado that hit at 5:30 or 6 Saturday evening. Picher was once a booming mining town with 20,000 residents, but many have been moving away over the years because of a lead pollution fear. The government has been trying to buy out homes in hopes of getting residents to move, and now, this may be their only option. Even though there is substantial damage, the government has made a pledge to not leave anyone behind. There were 6 fatalities in Picher from the storm system.
We have a chance to see some more rain and storms on Tuesday. The severe weather threat should be relatively low for our area. Have a great week! Any school kids or teachers ready for summer?
