November 24, 2010:

Wow – a busy busy busy month and weeks.

Attended the KY Weather Conference in Bowling Green – had a GREAT time!  The Paducah, NWS also had a conference at Kentucky Lake.  We gave away some Midland Weather Radios at both events.  We had such a great time – so many quality speakers.  🙂  Fun for all of the emergency management and weather geeks.

Then we had open house on Sunday – over 200 people attended.  We estimate the number to be between 250 and 300 in total.  Lot of people had more than one person with them – plus kids.

Teachers from Jefferson and Massac High School were there – along with a lot of friends from the past and current friends.  Everyone had such a great time.  I did not get to take any photos because I was never able to leave the spot I was in!  Hopefully some others took a few.  I know that Geri and Caesar sent me a few!  I will have to upload those.

My mom and family had a blast – so many faces that we have not seen in years.


Then we had a few weather events – including a tornado watch the other night until 4 am.  I went to bed at 3 – after the threat ended.  Joey saw a Bobcat the same day – I can hear the coyotes tonight howling.  Lot of creatures around here! 

Then add in school – and things are BUSY BUSY BUSY!

Loving life – all good.
