1. Don't play with trolls. (I am now using this theory in all I do lol and giving this advice to others...my kids and husband when they encounter a trouble maker...'troll'!)

Well, since the Superbowl is now is the books, I guess I can start a new blog, lol.
Lots of happenings here. 2 grands on the way (one any day now) and a wedding for our son. Couple of other weddings to attend AND still need to get down to see Mom in FL and Aunt, etc... This year will be non-stop.

I am on FB mostly, but like to come back here usually once a day to lurk, or at least once a week. If something is going on with severe, I'll be here if I can, as usual. But feel free to post significant weather if I'm not around.
So, with some severe entering the area today, I caught the bu...
