Marian's Hunting Stories, etc., etc., etc...
Stories of my hunting experiences with family, friends or whatever else I want to blog about.

A Dixie Lady Deer Hunter

Article by Fred Messina, editor of "On Target Outdoors" from The Vicksburg Evening Post on Friday, January 19, 1990. Photo by Bob Phillips.

Bob Phillips came up the other day with a photo of his wife Marian and a deer she got on Brown's Point New Years Eve. The deer was an 8-point with 16 inches of inside spread that weighed in at 190 pounds. A nice trophy in anyone's book. However, the tale Bob told is that this was Marian's fourth deer this year and he claimed that he would have done better than he did if he had not spent so much time hauling Marian's deer out of the woods. Come off it, Bob. We all know who the hunter was.

Let There Be Electricity!

Storm clouds roll in over Vicksburg from the west Thursday in a photo take from The Vicksburg.
Eli Baylis - The Vicksburg Post

An Entergy truck getting our electricity back on this morning which took most of an hour. Our neighbor across the street saw sparks from the transformer yesterday evening during the storm but everyone else in the neighborhood had electricity.  He had to work on the transformer, the line going to the house and the wires attached to our house.  I'm so thankful to have air conditioning!  It was a very hot night but glad we had ceiling fans that were still working in the kitchen and in the two back bedrooms.  The electrician told me that only four men are working the 620 customers's without power and the others were on vacation and/or helping out with the stricken in Ohio. 

A bolt of lightening destroyed a 20 year old wood and brick church but no one was inside at the time.  The storm downed trees south of Interstate 20 near downtown with some flooding on some streets. 

No break from the weather is in sight.  A forecast for more strong to severe thunderstorms this afternoon and evening, with the most potent capable of producing winds gust of up to 60 mph and quarter-size hail.  We have a 50 percent chance of thunderstorms that will continue daily until next Tuesday.

I wish I knew...my daughter and her family had outages in VA because of high winds and stayed in their basement to stay cool for about 3 days. Imagine they lost all of their food in the fridge. Our fridge stayed on but not sure about the freezer downstairs. Must be the sign of the times, I guess.

Do you have the link to the Feral Womans blog in Montana?

Thanks for coming by Lindsjo taxar! :)
