Moon here with my Chad story.  As the tornado sirens blared away last night I called Chad to see if he wanted to get together afterwards to survey the damage, if any. I told him I was safely in the basement and where was he? Outside!! Looking at the clouds and rain and thunder and lightning and possible tornado! So this morning I discover what he has  in common with Bla

Churches Encouraged to Prepare for Disasters

In October of 2007, a tornado ripped through downtown Owensboro and did extensive damage to Third Baptist Church. It has since been repaired and looks incredible. But it did shed a light on the fact that churches are often some of the oldest buildings in any community. And, with all the severe weather we've already seen this spring--not to mention the horrific images we're seeing out of Joplin, Missouri-- the Weather Preparedness Committee for Western Kentucky wants Owensboro churches to be on guard.

The Old Neighborhood’s All Wet–But With Good Reason

Sunrise Drive is where I grew up. You can see it on the far left of this photo. And my old house is still there. All the houses, in fact, still stand on the east side of Sunrise.

(Wet and) Windy Hollow

I took this shot yesterday after Mother's Day brunch. It looks like Panther Creek joined forces with Miller Lake to prevent folks like me from going any further. Of course, folks like the guy in the F-150 who went around me and plowed through had no such problems. I haven't been out there today, but hopefully they're seeing some recession of the waters.
