In other parts of the Dallas Fort Worth Metroplex; not so much. 6 confirmed dead, 14 missing, hundreds injured, mostly in the Cleburne and Granbury areas.
10 Tornadoes reported last night across north Texas. We didn’t have one in Arlington but my son (out picking up his wife & not taking cover) says he saw rotation just south of Bunker BS.
* – at least I am physically; mentally I’m not so sure yet. Spent 45 minutes in walk in closet with 2 dogs, a 10 month old, a 2 year old and a 4 year old. While the alert sirens wailed in the background and She Who Lets Me Make Her Coffee Every Morning kept running out to see if she could see the rotation.
Edited to add – Saw these at the last Self-Reliance Expo – Storm Dorms Storm Shelters – thought it was a great idea. Made the mistake of showing it to SWLMMHCEM last night. Going to have to figure out how to finance it.
She Who Lets Me Make Her Coffee Every Morning has a car that isn’t running. Doesn’t looklike it will be an expensive fix; hopefully just a sensor that has gone out. My mechanic, my wonderful brother-in-law*, thinks it should be a quick fix.
Her car’s been down a couple of days and it really hasn’t been a problem. We have two and our Son TR has helped out with transportation.
Today….today was a little different.
Today made me realized (once again) just how good I have it.
SWLMMHCEM is in a Pastoral Counseling Education program; working towards being a hospital chaplain. The program is at a major hospital south of Fort Worth, just off the major North/South Highway. I had to take SWLMMHCEM to the hospital today. And it rained. And there was an accident on the highway.
Dealing with the traffic, the rain, the drivers who have never driven in the rain or traffic; really made me appreciate how little traffic I really experience on my commute to and from work.
So for a busted sensor, I am thankful.
*He works cheap; a 6-pack of Mike’s Hard Limeade or Lemonade and some boneless chicken wings and he does great work
Went to the range this afternoon with my Tn Father in law Troy; didn’t get much shooting in though. It was a little breezy (like 15-20 mph gusts) and 58 degrees.
Took turns almost hitting the steel plates (I sure those things where swaying back and forth) with the Buckmark and completely missing with the Sig Sauer SP2022. Or at least I missed; Troy got one. Hate being shown up with my own gun.
It really hits home that I need to get out and shoot more when I interact with some of the club members. A couple of them were surprised that I owned guns and one was sure an alien pod had taken over my body.
