Dodged a bullet

We dodged a bullet last night. When we went to bed, it looked like the weather map to the west have been bleeding. The was a swath of red from Saint Louis to Kosciusko. Red=UNGOOD on a weather map.

My sleep was fitful. When I awoke at midnight, I looked at the weather app on my phone. The red was about 50 miles west of us. I made sure my wallet, flashlight, phone, and car keys were handy.

I heard the rain drumming on the roof about 2:30 a.m. I waited on distant thunder, but it never came. Apparently, the temps had dropped enough to take the punch out of the storm and it rained off to the east dejectedly. I was happy, but the folks in Kentucky didn't fare so well.

There was no chance to take a picture today, so I pulled one from the archives of Jilda and me taken three years ago after we played a festival in Mississippi.

Jilda has oral surgery tomorrow. She's excited.

We hope your week get's off to a better start than hers :)


  1. I know Jilda is 'cited!
    It is always SWEET to be surprised in a good way!

  2. I am thankful the bad weather left you alone.

  3. No one looks forward to oral surgery. Well, actually if you are in pain maybe that is not true.

  4. What a beautiful picture of you two.
    Wishing Jilda good success on her dental work.
    Hugs, Julia

  5. Poor Jilda ! What a way to start off the week, but sometimes it just can't be helped. Hopefully the rest of the week will be better !

  6. Nice pic. I'm glad the bad weather avoided you, and I hope Jilda's surgery goes well.

  7. I am happy that the brunt of the storm didn't make it to your place, this is a blessing.

    I hope the oral surgery goes a lot better than it sounds, and I am sure it will, that is a nice picture of you two.

  8. Glad the weather took it easy on you. I hope Jidas surgery is quick and painless.
