Hello everyone, and Happy Memorial Day.
I hope you took time to honor those who’ve died in service to our country, even if it was something as simple as a moment of silence. Those men and women are certainly deserving of at least that small gesture.
Many of us spent today thinking about people who are dealing with tragedy after tornadoes ripped through their towns Sunday night. The images coming out of Parkersburg and surrounding areas are mind boggling. If you’ve missed them on the air because of the holiday, you can see video at www.whotv.com in the video player, and also in the 13 Raw section. Also, feel free to share your severe weather experiences. I know I will never forget a horrible hail storm that ripped through my home town in 1986. I still get nervous anytime I hear the thunk, thunk, thunking of hail on the roof.
I was oblivious to the weather on Sunday, because I was trying to wrap up a project that turned out to be more work than I anticipated.
It started out innocently enough. I wanted to paint the upstairs bathroom. Our friends jokingly call this the longest remodel in history. When it is totally finished I will devote an entire blog to this space in my house, but for now I will just tell you that it’s been a project that’s lasted far longer than it should’ve. It’s a product of the fact that Michael and I are never home. Speaking of Michael, he said “As long as we’re painting the bathroom we might as well do the ceilings, the hallway and our bedroom, too.”
Have a great week!
