Here is the SPC guidance for the severe outlook for Monday morning until Tuesday morning. It’s pretty much as I outlined previously. Our ridge breaks down as a front approaches. We will have heating to the upper 80′s Monday afternoon producing friendly white puffies. But, as we get into the late afternoon and evening, some of those puffies may get bigger and fatter and be not so friendly as isolated t’storms pop up. As the front approaches Monday evening, our rain/t’storm chances will be enhanced. Even though the boundary is coming through at night, out ahead of it with the heating and elevated humidity levels, the storms may become more scattered in nature. It would not be out of the question for a couple of the storms to be rather strong in the evening and overnight. I wouldn’t fret about any activities for most of Monday and certainly not Sunday. Just keep in mind their may be a couple of guys on the prowl late Monday if you have any late Memorial Day plans. Tuesday the boundary slowly moves through and doesn’t get too far south so rain and t’storms will be in the cards. But by then, the Holiday Weekend will be in the books. We’ll keep you up to date on the Monday night situation as it unfolds.

I saw Gasoline Prices were over $4.00 in many places Saturday as Snow White and I did our part to conserve fuel by doing our sculling on the river. Not too many boats out there and I’m not sure if it’s due to high gas prices or because the river’s been so high or it’s been cool but there were many empty boat slips. But the river is falling, the debris is clearing up and the temperatures are rising. I suspect that the boaters will be out in force soon, if they can afford it. If you want to see a breakdown of where the cost of a gasoline comes from, I’ve got a couple of sources in the previous post.
How is this For a Trade? When I lived in Greenville, Mississippi there was a minor league baseball team called the Greenville Bluesman. I don’t think they even exist any more. There was maybe 20 people at any given game. Well, they traded a player for a box of pheasant. That was the ultimate trade. How’d you like to be that guy. Well, on Friday, a guy got traded from a team in Canada to a team in Laredo, Texas for a box of ten bats. It’s bad enough for a team to think your value is a few baseball bats but then to add insult to injury….they trade you to the streets of Laredo!! Turns out his value to the Canadian team was inhibited by the fact that the player had a criminal record that prevented him from even entering the country. So, it’s off to Laredo where the history is rich with outlaws….though I’m not so sure Laredo has a rich baseball tradition.
Player traded for 10 Bats
Isn’t this a great logo?
