Gorgeous Saturday and Other Stuff

We spent our Saturday on Center Hill Lake in Middle TN. The above shot is sundown for the front deck of my parent's houseboat. Temperatures were barely 80 degrees under sunny skies and low, low humidity levels. I took a group of guys that I'm in a Bible Study with every Monday night. They brought their families and we all had a wonderful time swimming, riding the jet ski, and pulling them behind the ski boat on a tube. This outing reminded me to appreciate the access and never take for granted the things my family on the lake.

On this date in Tennessee Weather History:
1901...Ashwood and Dover set all-time record highs with readings of 110 degrees.
1995...Six people attending an outdoor carnival in Murfreesboro are injured when lightning strikes a nearby power pole. A large tree is destroyed by a separate lightning strike.
1996...Flash flooding hits Auburntown (Cannon County) after an estimated 6" of rain falls in 3 hours. Sanders Fork and Marshall Creek, which join in the center of Auburntown, rise out of their banks. As a result, nearly every building in the downtown business district is flooded. Some homes are also damaged. Losses are estimated at $200,000.

Today's weather is for much of the same...highs in the low 80's here in TN after starting in the upper 50's & lower 60's....some towns tied or set low temperature records this morning!

Not bad for a 3-year old Fuji Finepix 3.2 megapixel digi cam!

Like a Timex, it takes a lickin' and keeps on tickin' :)
