MM’s Saturday Weather Forecast for April 23

“Nothing will work unless you do,” Maya Angelou.

On This Day

1987 – Thunderstorms in the Atlantic Coast Region produced golf ball size hail and wind gusts to 67 mph at Anderson South Carolina. The high winds destroyed two planes at the airport, and the large hail damaged fifty other planes, and severely damaged twenty-three greenhouses.

2009 – Gamma ray burst (GRB) 090423 is observed for 10 seconds, the most distant object of any kind and also the oldest known object in the universe.


Look for the Creative Compassion booth at the Flower, Lawn, & Garden Show today at the Community Complex! I’ll be there this afternoon after 1:00. It was so nice to see so many of you there yesterday! Stop by and say hello! For more info, please see
