Tornado watch

They just issued a tornado watch through this evening.  Yes, its autumn in Oklahoma and tornado season is supposedly over. Lately though we have experienced changing weather patterns.  Global warming no doubt is to blame.  Last year I didn’t light my pilot until the first of November and so far this year I have only lit the one upstairs.  When Sean comes home in another week or so I will get him to turn on the downstairs one.  Gas prices have dropped down to $1.87 a gallon here also.  I can only imagine how much Natural Gas has dropped again.  The gas company certainly isn’t telling us.

Memorial Park visit

We took the afternoon of Nov 1 to visit Memorial Park.  I have always gone before Halloween but now I know I am not the only one who leaves crazy things on gravestones.  Someone had put up a scarecrow, not a large one you understand.  The grave of a 2 yr old was covered with plastic orange pumpkins, and a young boy’s gravestone was covered with toy metal cars and a baseball.  My Butterfinger doesn’t seem so strange anymore.  We also went and found Doc and Edna while we were there.  Since Erin and Sean are the only ones left of the family I felt they needed to know where it was.  I guess that is one drawback of having a really small family.
