Grand solar minimum is happening. People need to pay attention. It's already affecting growing seasons across the globe.
got a few snow flakes on our way to church, but not many. I did feel so worry for those who were working at Home depot yesterday. They were working their you know what's off just to get all the plants inside or at least under cover because of the cold weather. Yep, Global warming or are we supposed to say, climate change certainly is hitting us hard. It is a bit warmer right now: no wind; tonight is supposed to be around 24 or perhaps even a little cooler. Thank God i haven't done anymore planting except for all the tomato plants I lost. Most everything yesterday at Home Depot was close to gone.

People need to be more conscious of severe weather situations before they venture out. The technology available on even a smart phone can save someone from being caught in something like that Mountainburg twister if only someone takes advantage of it. Weather radar apps are very advanced now and almost all of them come with the watches and warnings issued by the National Weather Service. You don't have to be a meteorologist to understand this stuff, you just need to know enough to be diligent and aware of what's going on any given day. As with the 2015 Garland/Rowlett tornado we experienced while living in TX, severe weather had been predicted and was occurring for much of the day before the Mountainburg storm developed. It's one thing to hunker down in your house during severe weather, but another altogether to be out on the roads unaware and uninformed of this kind of potential danger. It cost 11 people their lives that day in Texas....many who were picked up thrown to their deaths in their vehicles from a highway overpass. Those 2 folks pulling their camper who got flipped off of the road in Mountianburg are lucky to be alive.

^ Agreed. You can have emergency alerts on your phone that will let you know when pending bad weather is approaching. Sign up for CODE RED alerts here if you live in Washington County. I'm sure other counties have this as well just check your local county website.

Congratulations to Hogs center and Chanhassen, MN native Frank Ragnow on being selected by the Detroit Lions with the 20th overall pick in the NFL draft last night! Frank is a great football player and will be an instant upgrade for the Lions offensive line.

Woo Pig!

Yep, it has been a long time since we had a first round draft choice taken. Hope he does as well as everyone thinks he will do. I have to say, I wish he was going to play for a team we follow, but at least the Lions are not a team we hate like the Cowboys. Sorry I couldn't resist.

Do people who live in other states, especially clear across the country know that NWA is what the locals refer to as Northwest AR? I never heard of it till I moved to AR but I'm seeing SO many brand new members here who come to ask a question about it and already refer to it as NWA, some even use it in their username to refer to the location they are looking to move.

Ah Fayettenam, Springbodia, Booger County...all in a name. I never heard of northwest Arkansas being referred to as NWA either when I lived there.
