    15 July: St. Swithin's Day

    Better than Groundhog's Day.

    According to the St. Swithin's lore, my little area will be experiencing for the next 40 days temperatures in the lower- to mid-90s, along with periodic systems of storm cells navigating northeastern Oklahoma skies and the occasional cloudburst now and again.

    My opinion and nothing but my opinion.

    Tor:Con Index link below. Will show you the probability of a tornado happening in your area.

    FEMA's link for Emergency Supplies list below or what you need to survive for three days in case help is not immediately available to you.

    You can also purchase a weather radio which will inform you of severe weather even if your electricity goes out. Runs on batteries of course.

    Georgia reached 90 degrees for the first time this summer. It has been 40 yrs. since Georgia has not reached temperatures above 90 degrees for the summer months. In the meantime the western parts of the states have reached temperatures well into the 90's which has started fires in some areas causing homes to parish. A cold front is working it's way down from Canada which should cool things off in the top eastern states. In the mean time I hope the states which are suffering sweltering heat get some relief soon. There is only about 8 more weeks left of summer and we should all start feeling the cooler weather.
    It's almost been a year since we did our last show.Jay Bush my partner has been auditioning for the show Shark Tank and so this has put the show on hold. If he gets on Shark Tank, we will be terribly delayed. Good luck Jay. Either way we will one day continue the show and have the coolest global independent radio station out there. This is just a small video we did with one of our artists.Waiting for One and their tune 35 years. Check it out.
