George Jones, Dead at Age 81 – I am not a huge fan of his but he was a country music icon. He was also a troubled soul who had issues he dealt with throughout his life and career. Jones was a hall-of-famer and cast member of the Grand Ole Opry. He was once married to Tammy Wynette who passed away in 1998. The couple was a country music power couple (think Tim McGraw and Faith Hill or Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert today). Rest in peace “Possum”. Thank you for the music and memories.
We are under a severe weather warning here in the Chattanooga area. Currently its 66 degrees and we are expecting a strong line of storms coming from the west. Some parts of the area are under tornado warnings. There are reports of damage in the Nashville area related to this front coming our way. Some school systems in neighboring counties have delayed or canceled classes for the day. One can never be to cautious or careful in situations like this. Its going to be a very interesting morning as we see this storm front come through the area.
