Today will be a bad hair day for those with hair….The weather folks
indicate a 40% chance of showers and thunderstorms, mostly after 2
p.m., with northeast winds 8 to 14 mph and gust as high as 22
mph…temps will in the low 80s.

Tonight, tropical storm conditions possible..Still only a 40% chance
of rain but northeast wind 11 to 16 mph increasing to 24 to 29 mph.
Gusts are expected to be in the range of 41 mph.

The bad weather gets worse Sunday and Sunday night…Could be Tuesday
before much improvement….

If you have no hair…still a problem…..

Most likely few if any outdoor events this day in this area…

Among those listed for today…
Rabies clinic at several locations…..
East Bladen’s reverse raffle and steak dinner fundraiser..
Guided boat paddle around Jones Lake..(bet this one is ppd or cancelled)..
Master Gardeners plant sale at Cape Fear Farmers Market, E-town…

Activities already ppd or cancelled;
Bladen County Law Enforcement Golf Tournament…
Bladen County Relay for Life……

When in doubt—-Call ahead…

Bet bread and milk shelves are nearly depleted…I don’t really know
that..but we will buy those two items at the “drop of a hat” or the
promise of a ‘strong breeze’.

A great day for reading a good book….watching the lawn furniture go
‘flyin’ by…watching TV or cleaning house….

Mother’s Day is tomorrow….Do you have a “B” plan?

Why is it rain drops and snow falls?

Thirty people are sheltering under an umbrella. How many of them get
wet? None—who said it was raining.

A mother is she who can take the place of all others, but whose place
no one else can take.
