    There is a possibility of severe weather to break out next week, including tornados. Here is the article from Wunderground.com

    Just an FYI...

    When you find yourself in the position to help somebody, do not feel burdened. Rather, feel happy and blessed because God is answering that person's prayer through you. In that moment, you are God's Angel - His door to reach through and bring light to someone who is struggling in the darkness.

    Be God's Light. Be God's love. Be an answered prayer. Be God's Door.

    One of my favorite websites for weather info from the Storm Prediction Center!

    Click on Current Day One Outlook and you will get info on Categorical, Tornado, Wind and Hail. Map will give you outlined areas with the chance percentage of a tornado, strong wind or hail happening in your area. Info can change throughout the day so the morning's prediction may vary slightly from the afternoon's prediction.

    Powerful winds lash California

    http://www.centurylink.net/news/read...SNWU00L5_UNEWS

    LOS ANGELES (AP) — Powerful winds have been raking California and are beginning to be felt elsewhere in the West...........

    The massive rush of air across California also has had an upside. The main power grid operator says turbines spinning within the grid produced a record 4,196 megawatts Sunday night.

    Snow/sleet is predicted for Wed, with a 70% chance of snow on Thurs. The high for Wed is going to be 37, with 36 for Thurs. Good grief! This is April, supposedly spring.

    Spring storm delivers snow, winds; delays travel

    http://centurylink.net/news/read.php...SNWU00L7_UNEWS

    CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — A large spring snowstorm delivering heavy snow, high winds and rain was causing travel problems from Wyoming to Chicago on Tuesday.

    In Wyoming, some big stretches of Interstates 25 and 80 were closed for parts of the day, and blowing snow made driving dangerous along other highways. No unnecessary travel was advised Tuesday afternoon on about 180 miles of I-25 between Cheyenne and Casper because heavy snow was causing near whiteout conditions....more......

    Stay safe, everybody! what a mess...
