What's going on with all of this severe weather? Is this normal? I can't even watch the news, it is so upsetting. I don't know, it seems like it gets worse and worse and happens more often

I'm having another cup of coffee. I just started a big pot of chicken soup. I'm going to make biscuits too. I feel like comfort food.
I feel so sleepy this afternoon. I wish I didn't have to go out this evening but I still have to go to that mandatory prom meeting at the high school. I just went last year for my oldest but they won't sell the student a prom ticket unless the parent shows up for the meeting.
Anyway, I hope everyone is having a good day so far.
Thinking of you CAH.

Fun is not allowed where I work.

My brother-in-law works there, and last week he got in trouble for helping a customer too long. Can you believe that? We wonder why customer service is going downhill, he helps a customer for 5 minutes, and management tells him not to do that. The customer was asking him questions about food planning for a cookout.

A family we are friends with who live across the street from Plaza Towers (the school on the news) is safe and accounted for. Their home is gone, but their family is together!

My wife's cousin lost his house, but his family is safe!

One of my best friends lost his home (he was out of town at the time) but his sons made it out in time and are safe!

A friend that my wife taught with could not locate her two boys for most of last night, but we got word about 8:00 or so that they were found in the hospital and are expected to make it!

The line of folks just wanting to help is literally a mile long in places!

We finally heard from my grandma and her husband and they are safe! They rode it out in their storm shelter and it missed their house by under half a mile, but they're all good! We were very worried as we could not get a hold of them and could not get into that area to check.

Okay...enough for now...but wanted to report there is good news coming out of all this! My wife is very shaken up, and I think my kids are too. Thanks again for all the prayers!

I am glad to hear some your friends and family are all safe and accounted for. After our tornado 2 years ago it was the same thing people were coming out of everywhere to help out. People using all their free time using their chainsaws to cut the fallen trees, volunteering, feeding other people. The tragedy brought out the best in people, there are still signs around town that say "Monson Strong" which was coined a few days after the storm.

They got her into the cardiologist Friday afternoon to see what the next step is.
Thanks for the update, she is still in my thoughts.

Frederick Fairgrounds Frederick, Maryland

Nov. 22, 23, 24 & 29, 30 & Dec. 1, 2013

Nothing brings back the yuletide spirit quite like the Maryland Christmas Show. For the 30th season visitors from near and far will discover the joys of shopping at Maryland's premier Christmas event. The Maryland Christmas Show, located in historic Frederick City, brings together many fine artisans and merchants to make your holiday shopping an enjoyable event.

The show offers seven buildings and big top tents. You'll enjoy the works of top artists and craftsmen offering fine art, pottery, furniture, jewelry, clothing, wreaths and garlands, toys and Christmas ornaments - just about anything related to your Christmas shopping enjoyment. Not all of the same exhibitors participate in both weekends.

The Maryland Christmas Show makes shopping fun for everyone from gram to grandchild. So don't forget, we're a two weekend event. Wear comfortable shoes and warm clothing as you'll be moving between seven buildings and the Christmas big top tent.

Gather your favorite group together and join us as we celebrate the holiday season.


Oh I just love it when Christmas all of a sudden pops up and make you realize that's it only just around the corner....
I wish I could go!!!!

Good afternoon,

It's HOT here, it is at 90*f. I came home and turned on the AC for the first time in 2013 now it feels good in here.

Trying to figure out what to do for dinner, and then the Bruins are on again tonight.

Have a good evening.
