Happy New Year 2011!

Happy New Year to all of you.  2010 is a year I’m not sorry to see go.  And it went out with a bang around here, with strange weather this week that saw us go from the 30’s up to the 60’s and then get hit with a cold front – with predictable results for the Midwest:  Tornados. 

Predictable, except at the end of December.  Oh, we’ve had tornados touch down in St. Louis before.  In the spring and summer.  There is a furniture store that has been hit a couple of times during my life by a tornado, it almost has become a joke with them since no one has ever been injured.  But this was an out of season tornado and it hit a suburb  called Sunset Hills about 10 miles from me and took out about 20 houses.  Sunset Hills is about 10 miles from where I live and I’m out there all the time for shopping.  Fortunately no one was killed, although other people in Missouri did die in the storms.  It was a sad end to 2010.

So good riddance 2010 with your bad economy and all your crazy people populating the television and radio and your bad weather.  Welcome 2011. 

Please be better.
