Bearly....your comment on the blog....about 2016 New Years, is wonderful.  I wanted to click on and say that I agree with everything you said....but decided to come to our Musings.
I appreciate all that Red and Klaas and all mods have done to make our world better.  Thanks to them and thanks to all the monkeys who come here and share their lives with each other.
Looking forward to a healthy and happy New Year.

This little girl lived less than a block from where I lived at the time.  This case is so sad for this family.  I wish our local station had put up the video interview that was done with Morgan's mother and her 2 sisters--it was heartbreaking what this family has gone through knowing after 19 years that they will never know who or why their daughter/sister was murdered.  We had left for vacation the day she was abducted and all I could think to do was look at every van on the interstate to see if Morgan was in one.  This little girl was so innocent and so young to have had her life taken away from her family.  After 19 years it is safe to say her murderer will never be found.

The Morgan Violi Case: 19 years later
By Lyndsey Gough |
Updated: Wed 5:03 PM, Feb 17, 2016

BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (WBKO) - "It's a haunting case because it's such a horrific tragedy. I think we all put ourselves in the place 'what if it were my child' and as a community, it just drilled down to the core that this could actually happen in Bowling Green, Kentucky."

That's how former Bowling Green Police Chief, Bill Waltrip described Morgan Violi's case. It all began just after noon on July 24, 1996.

"Morgan and another little girl were walking from a play area that they had just inside some woods back towards Morgan's apartment when the perpetrator grabbed Morgan, put her in a van, and drove off with her," said FBI Special Agent Dick Glenn, the agent assigned to Morgan's case.

"I heard the scream, I came around. He was just sitting in the van. He smiled and the other little girl was running through the apartment buildings and I didn't ... I thought they were playing," said Morgan's oldest sister, Heather Coleman, who saw the kidnapping occur.

7-year-old Morgan Violi had been taken from the yard in front of her Bowling Green apartment complex in broad daylight.

"I'm the oldest. I told her go put on her shoes. And that was the last time I ever saw her," Heather told WBKO.

It was the same area her two older sisters were playing in at the time.

"When it first happened I just went to bed on my own and thought it was a bad dream, but you wake up and there's cops everywhere, strangers," Heather said....................................

Seahorse....I did not want to intrude in your thread about Hillary Clinton, but I am impressed at the information with links that you have given our site.  I find that this is a tough year to follow the politics in this country, but for at least one
candidate, you have made it easier.  Many thanks.

Mere, Hope everyone's okay. I understand Louisana is getting the stoms today. Stay safe. The weather channel and I have become friends too.  So far since it started we have had almost 6 inches of rain here.

Hi all and thanks for the weather warnings....the university has closed and daughter is on the Interstate coming home from work in southern
Mississippi. 

The street in my circle is flooded as are the ditches, but the lawns are okay so far.  My real worry is the flooding of rivers and streams.  I do have one behind me....a stream....and it was way down yesterday, but we have had a fair amount of rain.

 The dog is answering every thunder or lightning with a bark, so it can get loud....lol.  The local river is flooding and the campgrounds have been evacuated.

Anderson Cooper had a repeat of his CNN coverage of Katrina today.  Now that was a horror.....this is just "weather".

I don't know if any of you have ever had the need to check on electrical or cable outtages......but www.entergy.com and www.charter.net will show you
exact outtages.....when they occurred and when they are expected to come back on. 

As a child of the 1949 hurricane in NO, Dad had all of us in a small hallway that had four doors.  We each had a door to hold on to as the wind whipped
the house.  That is my first weather memory, but there were so many more.  While I am working on my family tree, I am writing these "stories".


Next subject......total knee replacement.....coming up to the one year anniversary and doing extremely well.  Walking up and down stairs, etc.
If you are faced with the same surgery, do your homework first.....on surgeon, hospital, therapy, etc. It has been worth it......

Be safe everyone...!!!

Mere stay safe. It's not over yet.  Glad to hear you are staying inside.  Please keep us up to date on how you are doing.


http://www.usatoday.com/story/weather/2016/03/10/floods-south-louisiana-texas/81575452/?ref=yfp

 

Five people have been killed in Oklahoma, Texas and Louisiana since the deluge began earlier this week, and the heavy rain promises not to let up for at least another day.

More than 20 inches of rain has already fallen in some places, the Weather Channel reported. In all, some areas will receive two feet of rain by the time the storm winds down Friday, the National Weather Service said.

In addition to Louisiana, the hardest-hit state where three deaths occurred, parts of Arkansas, western Tennessee and southern Illinois will also be drenched by locally heavy rain into Friday, according to the weather service.

Good Morning.....I am fine so far, but there is flooding in many areas with lots of electrical outtages.  TV just said we had
10 - 16 inches of rain.  People are out in boats on residential streets assisting with evacuating families who are flooded.
There are 50 closed streets just in my town/area.

Remember that little stream behind me....lolol.....it has flooded some areas that are lower than I am.  Bet most of you don't know
that I am "high" at 9 feet above sea level....!!!  If you have a GPS, you can use it to determine whether your area is above or below sea level....and this can change from block to block.  It is a good thing to know about when you are looking for a home.

www.wwltv.com is covering the area.

I feel so fortunate as I have electricity and cable and very little water on my street.  This should be over soon.
Hugs....

Hi all.....much has happened in the area.....rain, thunderstorms, and flooding of the rivers and streams in four parishes in southern louisiana.   The weather channel says that the rain level is 20 inches over three days.  The rivers are flooding some of my favorite little towns and some nice rural areas.

I thought I could take a break today and drive to the grocery, but the rivers are still collecting rainwater and many will crest over the next 24 hours.  The small river behind the house has flooded the street leading to this subdivision.

The good news....no loss of electricity or cable.

Fingers crossed.....this should be over by Sunday evening.

Glad you're still hi and dry but sucks that you can't drive to the grocery store.  Hopefully by tomorrow the water will recede enough so you can get out.  They keep talking about El Nino in California but so far it looks like other states have gotten it much worse than us.  We had a huge downpour yesterday for about 10 minutes but that was it!  Today it's sunny and beautiful!

Klaas....glad that you are having nice weather....a 10 minute rain might not even be counted in this area....lol.
I think the weather will clear today, but many roads are still underwater, including some parts of the Interstate.

Will be nice to get out....

Klaas you guys need the rain for sure. But in Southern Calif. most of it just runs off and into the ocean. They need it a little bit at a time so it can soak into the ground and not just run off. I know up North in the Sierras they have a large snow pack which should help some.  But I don't think the local mountains have much. At least my sons haven't said much about them.  Some times I really miss the weather out there.
