Stormy Tuesday

I'll be posting a longer entry later today at http://magicalwords.net.  But I did want to post and say that our town came through last night's storms in good shape.  It was a rough night in this section of the country -- homes destroyed, people hurt and killed.  We were fortunate in south middle Tennessee; the worst of the storms passed to the north of us.

I was up too late watching election returns.  I went to bed just after CNN called California for Clinton and McCain.  I cast my vote for Obama, and spent much of the night rooting for him in the various races across the country.  But then I spoke to one of my brothers, who told me that he really wasn't worrying too much about the outcomes.  He likes both Democratic candidates and believes that either one would make a strong candidate in the general election and a fine President.  Thinking about it, I realize that I'm inclined to agree.  From the start of this year's process, the Democratic party has fielded excellent candidates.  Some didn't catch on with voters, but just about every one of them was qualified, honorable, intelligent, and more than capable of leading our country.  Yes, the race will go on -- it might even reach the convention.  But as a Democrat, I'm proud of my party this year.  And, to be perfectly honest, I can't always say that....

Thanks, Tiffany. The thunder woke up our younger daughter (the older one can sleep through anything) and scared her a bit, but other than that all was fine.
