I hope you all survived New Year’s Eve without too much of a hangover. I spent it playing the game What’s Your’s Like? with the family after we returned from the movie theater. I had a few highballs during the evening. I’ve been fighting a head cold which has been going through the family one or two at a time.
After near 70°F temperatures yesterday and tornadoes in the area the cold front moved in late last night. It’s now in the mid 20’s and is supposed to drop all day and into the teens tonight.
How was your New Year’s Eve?
Lucky dog poop
We went to the movies tonight. Anticipating the cold weather that is supposed to come in tonight I grabbed a heavier jacket from the closet. After the movie I put my jacket on and reached into my pocket and felt something I wasn’t expecting. A plastic bag tied in a knot. It didn’t take me long to realize that it was dog poop that I had picked up while walking the dogs a while back. It is nice and ‘crisp’. I must have put it in my pocket to toss out when I got home and obviously forgot about it. I’m trying to remember the last time I wore this jacket. It’s been at least a month or two ago.
Anybody want some New Year’s confetti?
Storms with tornadoes and hail cut a path across Missouri on New Year’s Eve. Temperatures were supposed to soar to nearly 70°F before plummeting tonight to the mid 20’s – a perfect scenario for tornadoes.
Several fatalities occurred in outstate Missouri. No fatalities in the St. Louis are as of now.
Here are some videos of the damage in the St. Louis area from the FOX news station in St. Louis.
Three people were killed in the Rolla MO area. Rolla is about 100 miles southwest of St. Louis. Here’s a report from that area.
