Thoughts While Shaving for May 23

Memorial Day weekend began like a lion … roaring … windy, raining. … Hopefully, the next 72 hours or so will be more normal.

I checked stats recorded at the Curt Brown Airport National Weather Service location near Elizabethtown. … At 6:55 p.m., yesterday, west winds were recorded at 29 mph, with gusts of 53 mph. Temp was 83 degrees at 6:15 p.m., 78 degrees at 6:55 p.m, and 66 degrees at 7:15 p.m. … and a little less than an inch of rain … 89/100, to be exact … was recorded, all at that location.

Spent some time cutting grass/weeds and cleaning up twigs from a big oak tree in front yard yesterday … a few hours later … one big mess … to begin Memorial Day weekend. … Just thankful it was not worse than it was…

NWS has issued ‘flood warnings’ for Memorial Day weekend…

Today’s forecast is for a chance of showers and thunderstorms after 2 p.m., with a high near 87 … 30% chance of rain … actually unsettled weather thru Sunday night … Memorial Day (Monday) … partly sunny, with a high near 81…

Good to see local restaurants back in business last evening. … Barber shops and beauty shops expected to be open and busy for the next few days, maybe weeks. … Special rules apply to all. … May be a good idea to call ahead. … Not sure about churches … services will be held … outside or inside. … I will be listening, not likely inside. … Not real comfortable at any large public type gathering … others feel differently, and I understand…

If you will be on the road this weekend, remember some us have been shut-up for a while and we may be a little excited, and careless … be aware as you travel the highways and off the beaten paths…

Memorial Day is ‘a day which those who died in active military service are remembered, traditionally observed on May 30, but now officially on the last Monday in May.’
