Sam’s Tuesday Thoughts

Standard

Mom and I watched the news this morning and saw all the mess the tornado in Missouri caused….then there was a flood update on the river flooding down south….then another update on the people in Japan who are still digging themselves out.  Wow.  Just made me realize that when I complain because I can’t go outside in the rain – I’m still really a very lucky guy.

We had a tornado through HERE a few years ago.  I will never forget it either!  I knew it was close before my parents did – I think we animals “sense” stuff like danger better than humans do – anyway, I ran down into the basement and Mom and Dad followed me….we did like they tell you to do when a tornado is coming – they had the weather radio and we all sat and listened and knew it was just a few miles away.  It got very dark and the rain was pouring down like crazy.  The wind was really bad and the woods out back showed how high the wind was when the BIG tall oaks were bending way down……then there was a horrible noise – like a train – Dad looked out the window and saw the tornado – we were all so scared – and then a miracle happened.  The tornado hopped right over our house!  It really did…..the funnel cloud was huge but when it hit our hill it jumped up and over and went on through our neighborhood, tearing off siding and roofs and breaking windows!  Two 100 ft. oaks in our woods snapped off and we had kids pools, and lawn furniture and all kinds of debris blown into our yard but NO damage to our house. 

I’m sorry everyone else wasn’t as lucky.  I sure hope that’s the very last time I ever see a tornado though.  I’ll try to remember that next time I start to complain because it’s just raining outside…….

  1. Whadda picture. Got it made in the shade. I agree, Sam, when we start complaining all we have to do is look around and see people worse off than uss. I;m in a hurry today, have to drive to Houma for some vehicle. Yearly inspection, and I like to get there early.

    Later, big guy.

  2. Good luck with your inspection Uncle Jerry. My Dad has to do that “spection” thing with both our cars – kind of a pain but whatcha gonna do? I get “spected” once a year myself…..at the vets…..not too crazy about that either!
