Woke up to thundershowers.  Partly cloudy the rest of the day.  By afternoon, the wind had picked up, and it's been really gusty since then - colder, too.  Tornados in Alabama and Southeast Missouri with deaths, injuries, and much damage.  What a terrible morning for some.  My heart goes out to t...

Had a beautiful day today in St Louis, sunny and close to 60 degrees.  Maybe Spring is finally on the way.  I can't wait to get out and work in the yard.  I am a big gardener, and I love working in the dirt.  I guess I come by it naturally.  My grandfather was a farmer.  He and Grandma owned a sm...
