Freaky Weather

Memorial Day weekend is traditionally the start of Summer -- Wrong! This altered newspaper photo was taken this morning, not too far from Dogwood. We were supposed to be camping there this weekend, but the forecast is for freezing temperatures, snow and rain. That was too much for us, so we wussed out and decided to cancel the trip.

So far, the weather continues to surprise: hundred-degree temps last weekend, and now snow, rain and two tornadoes touched ground near here (one of them knocked over a train!).

I'm still planning on working a couple shifts at the Lookout this weekend, so I'll be packing my tire chains, life vest, lightning rod and an Old Testament.
