Thoughts While Shaving for June 4

Spread the love

Happy Birthday to my mom … She would have been 105 years old … born June 4, 1916 … Died April 10, 2004 … at the age of 87. A good lady … If she could see and hear comments today … bet she would say … my, my, my … She lived thru the depression and some difficult times … No stimulus, even in her later days she wanted only what was due her, nothing more…

If you prayed for rain … prayers have been answered … If my calculations are correct, another 3 quarters of an inch or so yesterday at the NWS reporting station at the nearby airport in Elizabethtown … Must have received about 2.5 inches over past 48 to 72 hours … but rainfall totals vary greatly, depending on location … Worth millions to us all, farmers or not…

We could, should receive more. Today’s forecast is for 60% chance of showers and thunderstorms, mainly after 5 p.m. Highs today in the 83 degree range. Tonight, a slight chance of showers and thunderstorms before 11 p.m. and a 20% chance of more rain.

Next best chance for rain, according to the long range forecast, is Sunday … a 50% chance … 40 to 50% chance Monday and Tuesday…

Crops looking good…

Reminder, construction continues on NC 242 between Elizabethtown and Bladenboro … Much needed repavement…

Wonder if praying for our elected leaders at every chance would be better than ‘bad-mouthing’? Just a thought…

Best I can tell, still many working from home … but slowly returning to a more normal work-place setting…

Not sure we need more churches … maybe better attendance at the ones still meeting … Actually, attendance is good at the place where we worship…

Folks still having babies and others dying … some still COVID-19 related…

Not sure I agree with paying more to stay home than to work … This to shall end … at some point…
