Robert Hester, Founder of BladenOnline.comFinally received the much needed rain … arrival and departure times vary, as in any such storm … Rain began in our area shortly before 9 p.m. yesterday, a 30 mph wind gust ushered it through the area … Around 1.5 inches at the local airport weather station, plus or minus depending where you are located. Crops in the area needed every drop, and more soon. Thankful for what we did receive…

Forecast for today … Mostly cloudy, with a high near 82. Partly cloudy tonight with a low around 64. Sunday, a slight chance of showers with thunderstorms also possible after 3 p.m. Mostly sunny with a high near 86 and breezy … 20% chance of precipitation.

Stock market like a yo-yo … up and down…

Recently, a friend shared an eye-opening article related to fuel shortage, more specifically, diesel fuel … quoting portions of the publication … “the price of diesel is currently higher than it was back in 2008” … “Any refiner who knows anything about this business, and most of them do, is doing everything in their power to turn every drop of gasoline into a gallon of jet fuel or diesel.” … “Since the beginning of the pandemic, at least 13 US refiners have been shut down, had capacity reduced.” … “This is truly a global problem, with the threat of diesel shortages around the world.” John Owens for Oilprice.com continued … “Looking ahead, there is plenty to worry about in this space. A spike in demand for gasoline and jet fuel over the summer will only tighten the fuel market … Importantly, diesel demand is less elastic than demand for other products such as gasoline.”

One more thought … My mom was born 108 years ago today … had 6 children, all alive and doing pretty good, ages mid 60s to mid 80s … She was a good lady, reaping her rewards…
