Latest Snowflakes Since 1977, Now We Can Party Like Its 1999


Happy Birthday Abbey! My 1999 daughter. She was the first one in the Prangley family born and raised in Indiana. She is like most Hoosiers and that is extra sensitive when it comes to the weather. Abbey is the neighborhood warden when it comes to severe weather. My neighbors know that she better not catch you outside during thunderstorms and especially when the sirens go off! She leads my family next door to Kathy's house during tornado warnings because Kathy has a basement. I remember taking her to my school talks when she was only 6 months old. I think she paid close attention well before she could walk or talk. Now she still does get scared during thunderstorms because she respects nature. But she is getting better! I have her to thank for being so calm on the air during tornadoes because when I talk to that camera it is like I am talking to her and working her through what to do and how to keep her calm. I cannot believe Abbey is 9 years old! Her one request on her birthday was for no thunderstorms and she got it and a few more nice presents from Mom and Dad. Abbey, I love you and am very proud of you!

We have come a long way since Monday night with our latest snowflakes reported in many areas since late April of 1977 which was one of our blizzard years. Now Abbey's request for nice tranquil Spring weather will not last long. Our severe weather season will crank back up again by Friday. More details on the way! I also have some snow stats to share with you. Was Mary Anne on to something yesterday when she said the Mother's Day snow of 1968 was our latest on record? We shall see!

Mike! YOU do NOT have a basement??? Shame on you! just kidding. I can bet you do have a storm plan for your family.

I am anxious to see what you find out about that Mother's Day. It was either 1968 or 1969.

Mary Anne

THANKS for today. It was beautiful!!

Mike: I remember the spring of 1977, because our first child was born in June of that year. It was so crazy....snowed in April, but then got so warm that the lilacs came out at the end of the month, and by the time June 4th. came around it felt like the middle of summer! Life is a weather circus in Indiana.
Love your blog and all the little tidbits about your family life. Keep up the good work!!

Good day, sun shines!
There have been times of troubles when I felt unhappy missing knowledge about opportunities of getting high yields on investments. I was a dump and downright stupid person.
I have never imagined that there weren't any need in big initial investment.
Nowadays, I'm happy and lucky , I begin take up real income.
It's all about how to choose a correct companion who uses your funds in a right way - that is incorporate it in real deals, parts and divides the income with me.

You can get interested, if there are such firms? I'm obliged to answer the truth, YES, there are. Please be informed of one of them:
