Céad Míle Fáilte ~ A Hundred Thousand Welcomes!

Here we seek a rest in the shade, some cool water and a little kindness. This blog is dedicated to peace, truth, justice and a post- industrial, post-petroleum illumined world in spite of all odds against it. I very much like the line about the ancient knight (see poem below) "His helmet now shall make a hive for bees" It is reminiscent of "beating swords into ploughshares" a sentiment I heartily approve of. Thank you for visiting ~ I hope you return!

Weird Wild Weather ~ Toto Too!!!

Image from the Lincoln Journal Star coverage of tonight's storms.
I just spent 2 out of the past 3 hours cowering in the basement watching TV coverage of this huge storm system. As wicked as this looks, it was much worse. Lincoln and Omaha (NE) were under constant tornado warnings for nearly 2 hours.
My dear husband was in the basement of the mall where he works at a jewelry store, with several hundred frightened people, shoppers and store managers and employees,trying to find out what was happening via their cell phones. Mall security didn't provide even a radio.

Many streets in Lincoln and Omaha are flooded, some up to car bumpers. Another storm system is headed our way.


You just haven't lived until you've had the air raid sounding tornado sirens blaring DOOM for hours. * sigh*....
