I understand the weather was bad south of us in the Hammond area late yesterday afternoon.  Pray for them as they go through clean up and recovery like many of our Mississippi friends have been doing for the past few weeks.  Thankfully, I have not heard of any fatalities north or south of us.  More storms are expected in the next few hours.  Be safe, my friends.
