WE had our first round of noisy severe weather last night.
First time we had heard thunder, so it seemed even louder
than usual. Lots of tree damage and some power outtages
too. Round two is coming again today. It is spring in Michigan
and you sure can count on one thing.. very crazy weather.
Hot and cold and everything in between it seems. I jumped
awake at the first rumble and unplugged every machine
I had. Spring storms, being the first ones, sometimes
cause havoc with electricity around these parts so
I always lean on the safe side of things. Some places
had hail that is still on the ground this morning so
you know that there were some heavy storms.
I heard about the mine tragedy on the news this morning
and send prayers to those families who lost loved ones.
It seems that in this day and age there sure could be a
safer way to do that kind of hard work. All the technology we
have at our fingertips and they cannot make it safe for
those workers just doesn’t seem right somehow.
Yesterday while waiting for mom’s treatment to be over
I ventured to the W%$#T store. Recently they had had
a fire in the store and had to restock the store up. Lots
of shelves were empty and it sure looked strange inside.
They sure wasted no time opening back up anyway.
I couldn’t smell anything like smoke in there so they did
a great job of cleaning things up.
I noticed that yellow squash was 2.38 A LB!! I asked a
clerk if that was the right price… she shrugged her shoulders
and said “unfortunately yes.” How the heck they sell any
is beyond me. Ever wonder how the get the .38 cents?
I asked, but the clerk didn’t know. How about rounding the prices
off and a lot lower that would SELL some items instead
of leaving them to rot on the shelves. Grapes were high and strawberries
all marked down. Seems someone ordered too many and put
the prices up too high and no one bought them.
Banana’s came down to .25 cents a lb. Gas went way up to
2.94 a gallon but I bought mine in the next town for 2.82….
pays to shop around. Well time to get moving along,…
have many chores today before Mom’s Dr. appointment.
HOPE YOU ALL HAVE A GREAT DAY!!
