Happy New Year!
2016 was ushered in on rain drops and flood waters here in west Tennessee. Epic floods were forecast, and folks began the daunting task of moving and storing their belongs before the rivers crested. Farmers moved all of their equipment out of what we call the bottoms – the low ground where the Obion and Forked Deer Rivers meet and flow into the Mississippi. The newspaper ran a picture of the sheriff leading a convoy of nearly 50 tractors headed for higher ground. Fortunately, the crest was not as high as predicted so it looks as if we might be spared this go around.
Time to stop watching the water and get to work.
I’ve put together a reading list for this year. I’ve mixed a few new books in with some old ones I just never got around to reading. I also had a few recommendations from friends, so I added them to the list.
